The Top 25 is filled with BYU and Utah commits, but BYU got the gem of the class in Kaysville Davis defensive end Troy Hinds, a Scout 300 member who just recently pledged to the Cougars.
Three players sit just outside the Scout 300 and have a chance to earn a fourth star over the season. Pleasant Grove (Utah) lineman Brandon Fanaika is one of the best guards in the West. South Jordan (Utah) Bingham linebacker Jared Afalava is a freak of an athlete and an ideal outside linebacker. And Hinds' teammate at Davis, offensive tackle Zach Lindsay, had also been committed to BYU before opening things up to take a look at Utah.
