El Dorado Hills (Calif.) Oak Ridge receiver Dylan Collie commits to the school his brothers played for...

El Dorado Hills (Calif.) Oak Ridge receiver Dylan Collie has a fine family history with BYU.

His two older brothers, Zac and Austin (now a receiver with the Indianapolis Colts), both played for the Cougars.

Now Dylan will do the same.

"I just committed to BYU," said Collie.

The three-star is plenty familiar with the program.

"Most definitely my comfort with the program and the coaches is what made me pick them," said Collie.

And the opportunity to play early also played a role.

"I have the opportunity to come in and make a difference as soon as possible," said Collie.

Collie said the time was now to commit.

"It just felt right," said Collie.

And the opportunity to continue the family legacy was also big.

"I'm excited to pick up where my brothers have left off and keep the name going," said Collie.

Collie had 42 receptions for 543 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior.

We saw Collie last week at the Stanford Nike Football Training Camp and he impressed.

Collie was probably the most consistent receiver at the camp. He won't wow you with his size and his speed is decent, but where he gets you is his ability to cut and get open and his very good hands. Collie also plays much bigger than he is, and was difficult for DBs to jam.

Brandon is in his seventh year with Scout.com, currently as the National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
