Junior wide receivers are returning after several key players announced that they would not be returning to the Cougars next year.
Football team BYU had another player back in 2022, and he was a mainstay.
Gunner Romney announced on his Instagram account that he will be returning to the Cougars next season. His announcement comes less than a week after his brother, Baylor, said he would not be returning to BYU.
“Business unfinished,” Romney wrote on Instagram. “Time to run again.”
Romney, a 2021 student, played 10 games for the Cougars and hit 594 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He has caught a total of 9 touchdown passes since 2018 and accumulated 1900 yards.
Romney’s return comes amid a slew of other Cougars that have announced their intentions to leave the NFL draft or simply exhaust their eligibility. Tyler Allgeier, Neil Pau’u and James Empey have both announced the draft. Widespread receiver Christopher Jackson announced on Twitter on Wednesday that he had entered the NCAA Transfer Portal for “personal reasons”.
Widescreen recorder Samson Nacua played his last game against BYU at the Independence Bowl.
