Pineview High School in St. George, Utah has already produced two big time football recruits this year in James Lark and Riley Stephenson. Carter Mees was another key component of the Pineview team that made it to the Utah state championship game.

Carter Mees is a 6-foot, 185-pound safety, who just returned from an official visit to Provo.

“The trip was really fun,” Mees said. “Corby Hodgkiss was my host and I had a fun time with him.”

Mees was not offered a scholarship but was told he was wanted as a preferred walk-on and would be part of the 105-man roster, with a possibility of being awarded a scholarship down the road.

“I played receiver and safety in high school,” Mees said. “BYU wants me to play safety for them. My senior year I had 100 tackles and 5 interceptions at safety and around 40 or 50 catches at wide receiver for about 600 yards.”

On his visit Mees meet with Coach Tidwell and Coach Mendehall. Mees looks forwarded to living out his dream of playing football at BYU.

“I’ve always wanted to go to BYU,” Mees said, “and knowing how Coach Mendenhall uses walk-ons gives me a lot of hope.”

Dixie State, Southern Utah, and Weber State also had expressed interest in Mees. He said that his strengths as a football player are his knowledge of the game and his ability to put himself in the right position to make a play.

He has 33-inch vert, 4.65 forty speed and can bench 240 lbs. Mees also plays basketball for Pineview.

Talking about teammates James Lark and Riley Stephenson, Mees said they are all really good friends and look forward to playing together.

“Both of those guys are not only great football players but they are great off the field,” Mees said. “They have fun playing football and are great leaders.”

Mees said that there were about 15 players on the visit in Provo last weekend.

“I meet about five or six of them,” Mees said. “Sean Fitzgerald from Mission Viejo was there, a guy named Jordan something from Idaho, he was a defensive tackle and a really nice guy. Then I remember Brandon Olgletree from Texas. I’m not sure who committed but I know some did.”

Mees will be at BYU for one semester then leave on his mission. While at Pineview he was academic all-league and all-state.
