One was expected, while the other was a bit of a surprise.
BYU announced Wednesday morning that it has signed two football players who will enroll in January.
The first, and expected, signee was Nick Kurtz, a wide receiver from Grossmont (Calif.) College in El Cajon who committed to the Cougars a while ago and withstood advances from USC, LSU, Oregon and others to stick with that commitment to BYU.
The second is defensive back Michael Shelton, a senior at Wakefield High in Raleigh, N.C., who is graduating early.
Kurtz signed an NLI with BYU and Shelton signed what the school is calling a "scholarship agreement" as a high school senior and mid-year enrollee.<
