Kalani confirmed Wilstead is looking to transfer— Brandon Gurney (@BrandonCGurney) March 12, 2018
Thought Kalani gave a good answer, when I asked him if attrition at the QB position was anticipated and inevitable— Brandon Gurney (@BrandonCGurney) March 12, 2018
Talked about how he wants as many QBs as possible. Likes sorting things out on the practice field, not through allocation of schollies/number-crunching— Brandon Gurney (@BrandonCGurney) March 12, 2018

Another of the 8 QBs who started BYU spring camp is out with a lower leg injury, walk on Hayden Griffits. Down to 6.— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 12, 2018
Byu was in shoulder pads and helmets today. Great one on one drills with offensive and defensive lineman.— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 12, 2018
OLine has some real promise. Kieffer Longson looks strong. Won his reps and can play G or OT.
James Empey looked good today and Tristen Hoge stoned Mo Langi at the line.
Corbin Kaufusi stood out today at the defensive end position. His hands are getting better. Much quicker and more aggressive with his strikes. BYU will rely on him to get pressure. I hope he can really improve on his pass rushers this year.— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 12, 2018
Mo Langi has lost weight and looks better, but is still too slow to play D1 football.— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 12, 2018
Merril Hoge was out watching his boy and nephew today. I still have many concerns about Beau at QB.— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 12, 2018
Health and decision making worries me.
Tristen is coming along well.
The #BYUfootball QB derby has dropped by one competitor. Kody Wilstead has requested, and been granted, his release to transfer according to #BYU head coach Kalani Sitake. Sitake wished him well and said Wilstead is looking to get on the field and play.— Jake Hatch (Yawk/Judas) (@JacobCHatch) March 12, 2018
Roster note: John Vaka is no longer part of the program. #BYU— Mitch Harper (@Mitch_Harper) March 12, 2018
I asked QB Beau Hoge what BYU is calling the new offense being installed by new OC Jeff Grimes. "We refer to it as 'our offense,'" Hoge said. "Nothing else, really. It's just, 'our offense,' for now."— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 12, 2018
I was a little surprised with how much throwing Tanner Mangum (Achilles) did today in 7 on 7 stuff. I asked him if he will be fully healthy when fall camp rolls around. "Yeah, absolutely," he said. "I will be 100 percent by then, for sure."— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 12, 2018
Sitake said that Zach Wilson "is a little further ahead" than other freshmen QBs. "He has had some really good coaches in high school and had some really good mentors. His dad has always been there to help him, too. He understands the system and he is able to compete."— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 12, 2018
Sitake: “I just want a lot of QBs. I would just rather have too many than none. I am not just going to take 1 quarterback. If there is a great one, I am going to recruit him. I want the best players here, and if we hurt people’s feelings, then so be it. Just part of football."— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 12, 2018
Sitake on Kody Wilstead release: "He wants to get on field and play as soon as possible, and he is looking for a different place to do that. He has been a great support to us and a great teammate, so I wish him the best. But I will be there to help him out as much as possible.”— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 12, 2018
Got my first look today at BYU freshman QB Zach Wilson (I was in Las Vegas last week) in action and was duly impressed. He made a really nice throw to Rickey Shumway during 7 on 7. Joe Critchlow and Micah Simon connected on a big play, too.— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 12, 2018
