Cody Hoffman confirms he's returning to BYU for senior season

BYU receiver Cody Hoffman hinted after BYU's 23-6 win over San Diego State in the Poinsettia Bowl last week that he was returning for his senior season, and on Friday he made it official.

A junior, Hoffman told the Daily Triplicate newspaper in Crescent City, Calif., his hometown, that he will be back in BYU blue in 2013.

Hoffman was named the offensive MVP in the bowl game after catching 10 passes for 114 yards.

Barring injury, Hoffman will almost certainly become the most prolific receiver in BYU history next season.

The following charts, taking information provided on the website Cougarstats.com, show that Hoffman ranks fourth on BYU's career list for receptions with 203. He's third in career touchdown receptions with 28 and fifth in career receiving yards with 2,718.

In 2012, Hoffman posted the second-best receiving season (in yardage) in school history, catching 100 passes for 1,248 yards and 11 touchdowns.
