The official announcement of Jake Heaps verbally committing to BYU came down today at 2:00 PM MST. The location was at the Iggys Restaurant in downtown Salt Lake.

Also, in Heaps news he is most likely not going to serve a church mission, even though he is LDS, this could cause for a heated quarterback between Riley Nelson, in 2010.

Nelson was a top recruit who transferred from Utah State to BYU this past year, and there will be a story comparing the two, coming shortly. The big news of landing a top notch recruit is that they sometimes bring in other big name recruits.

In this case, Heaps has become good friends with other recruits while attending the camp circuit, and two more recruits are looking to commit today as well.

The first is wide receiver Ross Apo who, according to Rivals is a four star recruit, has verbally committed to BYU today. Apo is out of Arlington, TX and is rated as the 36th best wide receiver out of the 2010 class. Apo was committed to Texas, but because of the relationship he built with Heaps, he de-committed today.
