Former Skyline High School standout Jake Heaps is in line to be the starting quarterback at Brigham Young University, Cougars head football coach Bronco Mendenhall said as the team started spring practice Monday.

Heaps finished practice completing 6-of-8 passes for 52 yards and one touchdown in practice Tuesday.

“I’ve seen good tempo, enthusiasm and confidence,” Mendenhall said in a release posted on the BYU athletics website. “I know they are trying hard and the plays and execution will catch up to the enthusiasm.”

In three years of starting for the Spartans, Heaps amassed dozens of honors for skills as quarterback, including three consecutive state football championships.

Heaps also earned the Gatorade Player of the Year title in both his junior and senior seasons.

Heaps passed for nearly 10,000 yards and tossed 144 touchdown passes in three years at Skyline. Scout.com ranked him the No. 1 quarterback recruit from the class of 2010.
