Weber State All-American CB Eddie Heckard Commits to BYU

BYU landed one of the best defensive backs at the FCS level as Weber State cornerback Eddie Heckard is a Cougar. Heckard confirmed to me Thursday morning that he is enrolled in classes at BYU for Winter Semester and will participate in Spring Ball.

A four-time All Big Sky nominee — three on the First Team — Heckard was also an AP All-American cornerback this past season. Heckard follows his former Head Coach Jay Hill over from Weber State and will likely step in as the top cornerback on BYU’s roster. Heckard had declared for the NFL Draft last month, but will instead use his last season of eligibility to play in the Big 12.
