While the common thought is to give a new head coach four years to let the former coach’s classes cycle through, Kalani Sitake is already attracting recruits that BYU might have lost to other schools in the past.

Add on quality wins that the 2017 schedule offers the Cougars, and things could really take off for BYU under coach Sitake.
