When Tanner Shipley first committed to BYU cougarnation was excited that they again scored on an athletic tall reciever. Shipley who stand at 6-foot-2, 190-pounds was garnering a lot of attention in the northwest for his skills. A recruiting class that has a bulk of players coming from northwest states it seemed to gel nicely for the Cougars. Brayden Kearsley, Dallin Leavitt, Billy Green, Darrin Laufasa were all friends and fastly becoming friends. Add on top of that that BYU was recruiting Shipley's teammate Johnny Ragin III an OLB that coaches see similar to Kyle Van Noy.

Shipley decided to de-commit and let the coaches know he wanted to make sure what he was doing was right. Oregon State continued to show strong interest and began recruiting harder, Boise State showed strong interest and then Wyoming and Colorado offered a scholarship. 

Did the coaching staff change it's philosophy? We remember the Kona Schwenke situation and we've heard that coaches talk about not waiting around for athletes who de-commit and holding a scholarship offer for them.
Whether they changed recruiting philosophy or not Tanner Shipley is more committed to BYU than he was before. 

"I feel really, the decision maker was just a feeling inside! Everything lined up right to see myself there for the next few years! I'm super pumped and I can't wait to be a part of the cougar family! They really care for me as a person and an athlete." Tanner Shipley.

We'll hear more from Tanner and get his thoughts on the recruitment and coaches reaction later.
