BYU has beat out rival Utah and Arizona State for the commitment of one of the nation's fastest-rising wide receiver prospects in the Class of 2018.

Gunner Romney of Chandler High School in Arizona announced via Twitter on Saturday his pledge to the Cougars.

How good is Romney? Listed at 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, he was one of 166 players nationwide to be invited to The Opening finals held June 28-July 3 at Nike headquarters in Oregon.

While at what many consider the most premiere event in the country for prep players, Romney stood out, with naming him one of its top five surprises from the competition.

Romney did not immediately respond to a request seeking additional comment on his decision.
