Getting to know BYU commit, OL Trevor Pay (Class of 2022)

Trevor Pay commited to the BYU football program (Class of 2022) on December 10, 2021, as reported on Twitter:

Pay is a 6-foot-3 280-pound offensive lineman that preps at Lone Peak High School (Alpine, Utah), where as a senior he was an Academic All-State (Deseret News), and named to the All-Valley and Region 4 First-Teams (Daily Herald, Deseret News).  Lone Peak won the 6A state championship, defeating nationally ranked Corner Canyon.

A four-year starter for Lone Peak, Pay was named to the Region 4 first-team and All-State second-team his junior season (Deseret News) and was part of the state championship team his freshman season.  He also plays on the Lone Peak basketball and baseball teams.

Pay is rated 3-stars by 247Sports (81) and is ranked the no. 46 overall recruit from the state of Utah in the Class of 2022. He received a scholarship offer from Morehead State and has seen recruiting interest from Air Force, Army, Boise State, Cal, Dixie State, Northern Arizona, Southern Utah, Utah, Utah State, UNLV, and Weber State.

Pay is the younger brother to BYU lineman Connor Pay and the son of former BYU lineman Garry Pay (1986, 1989-92) who also played for a couple seasons in the NFL. Trevor plans on serving an LDS mission and then joining the Cougs for the 2024 football season as a preferred walk-on.

I caught up with Pay to ask him about his recruiting.

BYU Insider: Why did you choose BYU?
Pay:  Because of the family culture that they have.  They want me to be set for life whether that is with football or with something else. I am excited to come into the Big 12 and compete with the best in the country.

BYU Insider: What other schools were showing you love in the recruiting process?
Pay:  Utah, USU, Boise State, Cal, UNLV, and others

BYU Insider: What are some of your favorites?
Pay:  I love Marvel movies, Fortnite, and all kinds of music.  And my favorite thing to do is just hang out with my boys.

BYU Insider: What is one of your greatest accomplishments in sports?
Pay:  Definitely winning the state championship this year.  We were able to beat the “unbeatable” Corner Canyon team to win it all.

BYU Insider: What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Pay:  Stop caring about what other people think and just be yourself.

BYU Insider: Who is a current player that you seek to emulate on the field?
Pay:  Quentin Nelson (guard for the Indianapolis Colts). He is a nasty lineman who never quits.
