Prep sports roundup: Aisea Moa of Weber High reopened his recruitment after being previously committed to the University of Utah.

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Corner Canyon receiver, Cody Hagen out runs the Bingham defender to score touchdown for the Chargers, in prep action between the Bingham Miners and the Corner Canyon Chargers, at Bingham High on Friday, Aug. 28, 2020.

The most productive wide receiver for the best team in the state is staying home.

Cody Hogen, a senior with the Chargers, announced Thursday on Twitter that he has committed to play for BYU.

“I want to thank all my coaches, family, trainers, and especially the BYU staff for believing in me before anyone else,” Hagen posted. “With that being said… I am 100% Committed!! #GoCougs.”

Hagen has already amassed 906 receiving yards in seven games this season. He’s second among receivers with eight touchdown catches.

Hagen is the brother of Cole, a former Corner Canyon quarterback who signed with Yale and was the first Chargers football player to win the Gatorade Player of the Year award.

Aisea Moa decommits from Utah

The Weber High defensive lineman made a decision of his own Wednesday: He is continuing his recruiting process after previously committing to play for the Utes.

“First, I would like to thank the entire University of Utah staff for the opportunity to be apart (sic) of there (sic) program, especially to coach Powell and coach Pouha,” Moa wrote in a Twitter message. “But after some long conversations with my parents and my heavenly father I have decided to decommit from the University of Utah and reopen my recruitment.”

Moa clarified that his offer from the Utes “was not pulled or dropped.”

Moa also has offers from BYU and Utah State, per 247Sports.

Twin brothers commit to Virginia

Despite their father having played for BYU, Dominique and Marcus McKenzie of Pine View High chose to go to place where BYU blood still runs blue.

The McKenzie brothers committed to the University of Virginia last week and announced their decision during an event at the high school. Dominique is a wide receiver, while Marcus is a cornerback.

Utah was in the final five possibilities for the twin brothers.

Former BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall is the head coach at UVA.
