Football: Here's list of BYU's 18 commits for 2011

BYU picked up another football commitment on Monday night, landing Aulelio Olomua, a defensive end from Mesa, Ariz.

Olomua said on his Facebook page that he has committed to BYU. You can read more about Olomua on our BYU sports blog here.

According to my calculations, that gives the Cougars 18 commitments. There has been speculation, however, that Joe Sampson, a junior college transfer, might not be able to sign on Feb. 2 due to some academic hangups.

Here is the list of 18 commitments for 2011 to BYU, and five commitments from the class of 2012:
