Chandler Quarterback Jacob Conover Commits to BYU

Jacob Conover and Gunner Romney torched opposing defenses last year for the Chandler Wolves.

Now, they’ll be able to do it as BYU Cougars.

Romney signed with the Cougars last recruiting cycle, and on Sunday, Conover committed to BYU as well.

Conover, a four-star recruit, led Chandler to back-to-back state championships and has been the model of consistency. As a sophomore, he threw for 3,715 yards with 32 touchdowns and five interceptions. As a junior, he matched that touchdown total in five less games played. He threw just two interceptions as a junior. 

This offseason, Conover won the quarterback MVP at the San Francisco regional of The Opening.

“Conover is a fantastic player that can make all the throws,” Sports360AZ recruiting insider Jason Jewell said in a message. “He has a quick release, thros a nice ball and is extremely accurate.”

Conover held offers from Alabama, Arizona State, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Washingotn State, among others. He told 247Sports he will go on a two-year LDS mission before attending the university.

One of Conover’s favorite targets, tight end Brayden Liebrock, committed to Texas earlier this week as well.

The Chandler Wolves kick off their 2018 season atCorona Centennial (Calif.) on August 17th.
