Kedon Slovis is close to a perfect fit to be a QB at BYU.
I am extremely excited about the signing of Kedon Slovis. This guy has been around the block, so to speak, and is one sensational passer. The more I read about him, the more impressed I am with him. And, to say that he has been around the block is a huge understatement. He played his first three years at USC and his fourth at Pittsburgh. Following the 2019 season, multiple sources pegged Slovis as a possible contender for the Heisman Trophy in 2020. It doesn't get much bigger than that. In week one of the 2020 season, against the Arizona State University Sun Devils, Slovis set a USC record of 40 completions as he threw for 380 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 28–27 comeback victory. For his efforts, he received Davey O’Brien Award Great 8, Manning Award Star of the Week, and CollegeSportsMadness.com Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honors. The following week, the Trojans traveled to Tucson to play the University of Arizona Wildcats where Slovis led another 4th quarter comeback, throwing for 325 yards and 1 touchdown in the 34–30 victory. In Week 3, Slovis threw for 264 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception en route to defeating the Utah Utes in Salt Lake City, for the first time since 2012, and improving USC's record to 3–0. Following the cancellation of their Week 4 matchup vs the Colorado Buffaloes due to COVID-19, Slovis led USC to a 38–13 victory over Wazzu throwing for 287 yards and 5 touchdowns (4 of which were to Amon-Ra St. Brown).
We can thank the fabulous ex-BYU QB John Beck for getting Slovis to BYU.
And...on top of all of these attributes, my understanding is that he absolutely loves Provo and BYU. He seems to be a great fit, as per:
