BYU's football program continues to turn to its Bingham High pipeline for quality prep football players.
The Cougars will sign about a dozen high school seniors on Wednesday when the football signing period begins, but the latest player to commit to BYU is a junior.
Bingham High's Keegan Hicks, an offensive lineman and member of the class of 2013, committed to BYU over the weekend after attending one of the program's Junior Day gatherings.
Hicks is 6-foot-3 and weighs 280 pounds.
At BYU, Hicks will join plenty of other Bingham High products, including Baker Pritchard, Moses Kaumatule, Manoa Pikula, Remington Peck, Mike Edmunds, Austin Holt and Kesni Tausinga, to name a few.
Hicks' commitment means BYU now has five commitments from members of the class of 2013 (high school juniors). Here's that list:
Keegan Hicks, 6-3, 280 OL from South Jordan, Utah (Bingham High School)
Brayden Kearsley, 6-6, 250 OL from Portland, Ore. (Aloha High School)
Trajan Pili, 6-2, 200 LB from Las Vegas (Centennial High School)
Dallin Leavitt, 5-11, 196 Safety from Portland, Ore. (Central Catholic High School)
Moroni Laulu-Pututau, 6-4, 190, TE from Hyrum, Utah (Mountain Crest High School)
