2022 College Recruiting - 2 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on July 3, 2021
BYU logo ATH Kaden Chidester (Richfield, UT) commits to BYU  View Class

This is interesting as Chidester (6-8, 244) was offered a scholarship to play football despite never playing the sport. He is a basketball player and BYU coach Kalani Sitake liked what he saw on the hardwood and believes it can translate to the gridiron. Chidester's basketball film looks fine. His footwork is good, and he has no problems getting up and down the court. Where does he projects? Offensive line would seem like the most obvious fit. Tight end is a possibility as well. It's an interesting approach but Sitake has done a great job at BYU and deserves the benefit of the doubt in this case.

Kaden Chidester's Player Grade: C

Ross (6-6, 240) is a small-school prospect, actually an 8-man football prospect, who earned a scholarship offer by working out at one of BYU's prospect camp. He's been projected as a tight end by some and a defensive end by others. It might be a while before we find out exactly what BYU plans to do with Ross because he will go on his mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints before he enrolls at BYU. Ross likely won't be on campus until the 2024 season.

Cooper Ross' Player Grade: C-
