As BYU continues to hold football camps they also continue to hand out scholarship offers, with several going to young talent as their first D1 offers. This week the Cougs received a verbal commitment from long snapper Dalton Riggs and extended scholarship offers to Carter Wheat, Ace Kaufusi, Bodie Schoonover, and Deven Vanderbilt.
Dalton Riggs is a long snapper from Eagle Idaho. Riggs was getting a lot of interest from various PAC 12 teams but was happy to commit to his “dream school”. His older brother Austin is a BYU Class of 2018 signee currently serving a mission.
