Last Thursday, many Cougar fans were sad about the news of four-star recruit, Payton Dastrup (Mesa, Arizona) committing to Thad Matta and Ohio State. It was another chapter of a highly-touted recruit holding a press conference and leaving the Cougars at the alter. Then today, national signing day, Dastrup pulled a shocker and faxed in his letter of intent to Coach Rose and BYU.
Dastrup told Scout.com that he had a change of heart. Said he grew up a BYU fan his whole life and he felt a bit empty about his Ohio State commitment. Cougar fans are thrilled that the emptiness led Dastrup to Provo.
