Second Bingham receiver to visit BYU

Kalan Cantwell

Cougar fans have already heard about speedy Miner receiver Hayden Weichers, who is in contention for a BYU scholarship and will attend BYU's Junior Day this Wednesday. Meanwhile, a Bingham receiver that plays on the opposite side of him will also be in attendance on Wednesday.

That other Bingham receiver set to visit BYU is 6-foot-2-inch, 200-pound Kalan Cantwell. Cantwell ended up being selected among the top 10 prospects at last Saturday's Receiver Tech 25 Camp.

The younger brother of Stefan Cantwell, a former quarterback at Bingham High School, Kalan Cantwell performed well enough during his junior year to receive some notoriety. He has spoken to various college coaches and has received letters of interest and camp invitations.

"I've just been getting letters for camps and stuff like that from Utah, BYU, Utah State and Oregon State," he said. "Colorado sent me a couple here lately."

This week Cantwell will be attending BYU's Junior Day.

"I was excited to be invited to that," he said. "When you think they're not looking at you, you then get an invitation to come down because they are looking at you. It totally changes how you look at things."

The Bingham receiver will then head north before returning to Provo.

"Then I'll be heading up to Utah State for Thursday and Friday and then I'll come back down because BYU is holding a seven-on-seven that Saturday."

While BYU was holding spring camp, Cantwell made a few unofficial visits to watch the Cougars practice.

"I really enjoy how BYU plays and really enjoy watching how they practice. The coaches are always nice to you and talking to you, making you feel involved and make you feel at home down there. I love it down there."

A physical receiver with good hands, Cantwell hopes that his camp performances will make him a contender for some scholarship offers.

"I had 36 catches for around 530 yards and seven touchdowns my junior year," Cantwell said. "This is my senior year coming up, so I hope to continue to improve and do better to go out with a bang. I'm hoping to do well at these camps that are coming up to get the coaches to take a harder look at me, and who knows, maybe get an offer."
