BYU Football: 3 Big Recruiting Targets Yet to Commit
It is never to early to look at an upcoming Cougars recruiting class, especially at the top players on the list. Although these three players have not yet committed to a college, they have the size, athleticism and knowledge of the game to play at the next level.
Also, BYU is on the list of schools that the three are looking at. If they decide to become Cougars, I wouldn't be surprised to hear their name time and time again.
Atamu Ah Ching
Atamu Ah Ching is a 6', 220-pound middle linebacker from South Carolina. He received a scholarship offer from the Cougars before his sophomore year.
BYU is currently his top choice, but Ching has received offers from schools including Georgia Tech, Colorado, Oregon and Utah. He will probably make up his mind soon.

Jalen Ortiz is an upcoming senior from Centennial High School in Arizona. Although he is small (5'9") he is quick (4.55-second 40-yard dash).
As a running back, Ortiz could help to fill the void left when Josh Quezada graduates. It will be tough to get him in Provo, as he has received offers from 14 schools other than BYU, including Arizona State, Utah, Washington, USC, UCLA and Stanford.

Another defensive player, Uaea Masina is an outside linebacker from Brighton High School in Salt Lake City. Naturally, Pac-12 schools have shown interest in him (he has received offers from Utah and Colorado).
At 6'4" and 200 pounds, Masina is easily the biggest player on this list. If he decides to play for the Cougars, the duo of Kyle Van Noy and Masina on defense could be a big threat to offenses.
