Arizona All-State WR Prince Zombo Jr. picks BYU over Arizona State (Class of 2023)


On Saturday, Arizona all-state receiver Prince Zombo Jr. committed to play football for Brigham Young University (Class of 2023).

As a junior, Zombo had nine receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown, with a 12-yard carry, two tackles, and a fumble recovery. He runs a reported 4.51 forty with a 35-inch vertical (HUDL), and last track season he competed in the 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay, and 4x400m relay (

Zombo was recruited by Foothill junior college, Arizona State, and Colorado State.  He will join the Cougs as a preferred walk-on. I caught up with Zombo to ask him about his recruiting.
