Lamason Waller is set to officially visit BYU. Despite having offers from top programs like Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M, Waller’s relationship with Fesi Sitake gives BYU an edge. The 6-2 wide receiver from California is highly sought after due to his impressive skills, including his long strides, large frame, and ability to make big plays, making him a nightmare for opposing defenses.

Waller’s decision to visit BYU on June 20 came as a surprise to many BYU fans, as out-of-state prospects with no ties to BYU typically don’t consider the school. Waller explained to Cougar Sports Insider that he has had a strong connection with coach Fesi Sitake since his first visit to BYU during his sophomore year. He described Sitake as genuine and relatable, appreciating the BYU culture.

Sitake, known for his effective recruiting, has expanded BYU’s recruiting pool, bringing in players like Kody Epps, Jojo Phillips, Darius Lassiter, and Keelan Marion. Now in his seventh season at BYU, Sitake aims to add Waller to the class of 2025.

Waller will visit BYU alongside other official visitors, including highly regarded wide receiver Sam Turner and California native McKay Madsen. BYU hopes to secure commitments from these prospects during their visits. Waller has no set timeline for his commitment, stating that he will decide when it feels right.

During Waller’s visit, BYU’s coaches, Aaron Roderick and Sitake, plan to highlight how players like Puka Nacua have been utilized in their offense, aiming to show Waller how he would fit into their program. If they can successfully convey this vision, BYU’s chances of securing Waller’s commitment will improve.
