INTERVIEW WITH FUTURE BYU QB KEATON TORRE

keatonBy Josh Cann

South Jordan, UT – Keaton Torre plays for Bingham High School, moving from   Oklahoma where he had a great start at QB, he drew interest from many schools. He was  committed to Louisville, but decommitted and has since committed to BYU, making his verbal right after the BYU-Boise St game in September.

“Coach Beck called me as soon as I moved to Utah and has stuck with me ever since. Also Kelly Poppinga has also been in close touch with me as well in the recruiting process.” Keaton Torre said.

He is considered a pro-style QB with a great build standing at 6’3, 201lbs. He’s been ranked the #1 QB prospect in the state of Utah on various recruiting sites. He has a cannon of an arm, can make any throw on the field. He also has been playing a little WR and Punter at Bingham as well.

“After the Bishop Gorman game earlier this year, Coach Lambourne and I had a heart to heart and I told him I’ll do anything I can to help the team win. I’m just trying to find my way and do anything to help our team win.” Torre said.

Torre referenced that he struggled against Bishop Gorman, Bingham’s only loss this season, but also sustained a left hand injury (non-throwing hand) that has kind of lingered that he hasn’t really told anyone about.

Talking to some Bingham alumni who have been to every single game this season, they said that Torre can throw the ball all over the field, that he can make any throw, but also can catch anything thrown to him as a WR. They had nothing but positive things to say about the BYU commit on what he brings to the table.

Torre is close friends with BYU commit Drew Jensen who’s a 3 star Safety, BYU prospects Jackson Kaufusi who’s a 3 star OLB/ATH, and Sione Heimuli-Lund a 4 star RB. He’s also friends with 4 star Stanford commit Simi Fehoko.

“Those are my guys. We do stuff together all the time. We talk about recruiting here and there, but mainly just chill. I’m always trying to get Simi (Fehoko) to flip his Stanford commit to BYU.” Torre said with a smile.

Keaton plans on enrolling at BYU next year and will be available to play immediately. He is LDS, and is unsure about mission plans at this point.

The future is bright in Provo at the QB spot, and Keaton Torre might just be one big reason why.
