Three BYU Football Recruits Will Play in 2018 Polynesian Bowl
Tanner McKee, Merlin Robertson, and Nathan Latu
The Polynesian Bowl is becoming an annual tradition in college football recruiting
Last year, the Polynesian Bowl was a huge success for BYU football. The Cougars received a commitment from four-star defensive end Langi Tuifua at the game over the likes of Utah, Oregon, UCLA, and others.
Fast forward to this year and the Cougars aren’t expecting any potential announcements to don any BYU blue and white, but there is a trio of prospects that are worth keeping an eye on in the game.
Tanner McKee, QB | 4-star
McKee has never tipped his hand throughout this recruiting process. Last week he took an official visit to Stanford and the Cardinal impressed him a lot. Will BYU be able to get McKee to take an official visit between now and Signing Day is the question right now for the Cougars?
Merlin Robertson, ILB | 4-star
Robertson’s senior season wasn’t as productive as many expected and injuries had some schools cooling off on their recruitment of the four-star prospect. BYU offered Robertson two months after Kalani Sitake was hired back in 2015.
Nathan Latu, ATH | 3-star
Once a BYU commit. Didn’t play a snap his senior season at Olympus. Could be a non-qualifier option, but that might be a stretch as he continues to work on academics.
