A key point for Utah State in their 2014 recruiting class was to land a few wide receivers to replace the outgoing seniors they have on the team this year. Utah State earned a verbal commit from wide receiver Jonah Trinnamen (American Fork, Utah).
Trinnaman is only rated as a two-star player per Scout.com, but seeing him in person begs to differ. He is on the smaller side at 5-feet-11-inches and 175 pounds, but he has hands to catch an array of passes, and he is fast. He is the leading receiver for his high school team -- which has a very good chance to make the playoffs -- with 43 passes for 585 yards this season
Track is also a speciality for Trinnamen as he ran the fastest time in the state of Utah in the 100-meters last year with a 10.82-second race.
He also had interest from BYU, UNLV, Boise State, Harvard and Utah, but he told the Salt Lake Tribune that comfort level with the coaching staff is why he picked the Aggies:
"It felt like the right time, like the right thing to do," Trinnaman said. "I got the offer over the summer, I just wanted to to think about it and make sure this is what I want."
Trinnman is a member of the LDS faith and is debating on serving a two-year church mission straight out of high school or delay the decision. With the loss of senior wide receivers Travis Van Leeuwen and Travis Reynolds, the Utah State coaching staff would prefer he delay that choice since he would have the chance to earn some early playing time.
Here are highlights of Trinnman:
