60 in 60: #18 BYU’s Isaac Rex (Tight End)
SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #18 is BYU’s Isaac Rex (TE).
Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).
“Had an unfortunate injury last year but is a huge presence for our quarterback as a big target,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said of his tight end. “6-6, very athletic, soft hands, can block at the line of scrimmage as well. Next-level tight end for us, great compliment to what we have going on with Dallin Holker. Looking forward to seeing him healthy and catching balls in the end zone.”
