Tanner Mangum After Graduating From BYU: ‘Excited To Continue My Education At This Amazing University’
Graduate senior quarterback will compete for the starting QB job at BYU this fall.
Mangum has thrown for 5,158 yards in his BYU career
This past weekend at BYU, commencement took place for all of the graduates in the class of 2018. One of the notable graduates was BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum.
Now that Mangum has graduated from BYU, he would have the opportunity to transfer and play immediately in 2018 if he wished to do so. But any speculation on that front was put to rest by his post on Instagram stating his intentions to stay enrolled at BYU.
BYU undergrad: ✅ BS in Sociology: ✅ Excited to continue my education here at this amazing university through the fall and to play my senior season with my teammates and friends. Thank you to everyone who is helping me along my journey!
Mangum will be given every opportunity from passing game coordinator Aaron Roderick to win the starting quarterback job. Mangum has been ahead of schedule in his recovery from an Achilles injury he suffered last November. During spring football, Mangum surprised many by competing in 7-on-7 work and now the coaching staff and Mangum have gone on the record to state that they expect Mangum to be “100-percent” at the start of Fall Camp on August 3rd.
Along with Mangum, the other quarterbacks who will be vying for the starting quarterback role include: Junior Beau Hoge, Sophomore Joe Critchlow, true freshman Zach Wilson, and returned missionary Jaren Hall, who returns home from his mission today.
