"Coach Cahoon might have been the biggest thing for me in making my decision," said Shumway. "Being around him, watching how he coaches and just talking to him that's the coach I want to play for and the coach that I know will best help me reach my potential."
Cahoon wasn't alone in forging a strong relationship with Shumway, however.
"I really got to know Bronco and really got to be comfortable around him," he said. "He has a great way of talking to you, and I've really built a great relationship with him since BYU first offered. I love the program he's built and all of its ideals."
