The sky seems the limit when assessing Stacy Conner’s BYU future.
The 6-foot-6, 190-pound quarterback, who served on the scout team this season, is expected to figure far more prominently in 2019 for the Cougars.
Not one to brag, Conner, nonetheless, is not known either for being bashful.
“Oh yeah, I’m ready for BYU,” Conner told the Desert News soon after settling on BYU from a host of choices. “I’m anxious to get to BYU, and I know this will be a great fit for me.”
That anticipation is shared by BYU coaches, who envision the Wylie High grad as a potential dual-option threat few opponents can truly gameplan for.
“He’s young, but he is very talented—a gifted and talented quarterback,” added Conner’s high school coach Michael Johnson. “He has the arm strength to throw the ball; he has a quick release and intelligence when it comes to managing the football field during a game.”
Just 17-years-old when he signed with the Cougars, Conner takes it all in stride.
“I’m going to BYU to play football,” he said, “and to make a difference at a quality football program.”
