BYU in coveted Texas prep safety's top three; Two juniors commit after camp

Looks like BYU is still in the running for one of the top football prospects in Texas this year, rising senior Tre'Quille Flowers of Judson High in Converse, Texas.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound safety told FOXsportsNexTV that he has narrowed his 13 offers down to three schools: BYU, Arizona State and Kansas State.

The Cougars offered Flowers -- who goes by "Tre" -- a scholarship a couple of months ago, shortly after K-State did.

The website says Baylor could be close to offering


The Cougars landed a couple more commitments on Thursday as their padded camp wrapped up, but these pledges came from members of the class of 2014 (rising juniors).

Brighton High linebacker Isaiah Kaufusi and Neil Pau'u of Servite High in Anaheim, Calif., said Thursday they plan on signing with BYU in 2014.

Kaufusi is the nephew of BYU defensive line coach Steve Kaufusi. His father, Jeff, played for Utah.

Kaufusi stands 6-foot-2 and weighs around 175 pounds, but is expected to grow into his frame and eventually play defensive end for the Cougars.

Pau'u is the younger brother of Butch Pau'u, who signed with BYU last February. He's a 6-foot-4, 190-pound athlete who will compete for the starting quarterback spot at Servite after playing receiver last season.


Former BYU offensive lineman Terence Brown's dream of playing professional football lives on. Brown, who was recently cut by the Miami Dolphins to make room for receiver Chad Ochocinco, has signed with the Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League.

Cougar fans know that Brown, 6-3, 310, started 39 straight games for BYU and earned All-MWC honorable mention honors as a junior.

"Terence Brown is a hardnosed offensive lineman," said Blaze coach Ron James. "It is obvious that he has been well-coached on both the collegiate and professional levels. We are eager to see his progression in Arena football."
