Can Bronson Kaufusi deliver in post
His situation, story, background, media hook, freakish talent and arrival in the NFL after playing the game for only a few years will likely never be repeated, even with the growth of the LDS Church expanding Cougar recruiting opportunities.
But if there was ever a guy who may come close not in the sense of a media magnet but in terms of actual down after down on the grass football play, it sophomore defensive end Bronson Kaufusi.
Kaufusi can run 40 yards in the 4.6 range, just a few ticks within the 4.63 time Ansah posted at the combine. He ran a 4.67 at a high school combine and says he chipping away in the 4.6 arena now albeit packing an additional 50 pounds.
First there genetics: Ansah had no relatives that played football. Kaufusi father Steve and uncle Rich Kaufusi and his mother brother, Craig Garrick, played at BYU and others in the bloodline played at Utah, including Doug, Henry, Jason, Jeff and Sonny Kaufusi.
Then there basketball. Kaufusi actually did make a Division I basketball roster, scored points, grabbed rebounds, played defense and fouled opponents. BYU basketball coach Dave Rose cut Ansah after tryouts.
Kaufusi enters his sophomore year with several thousand times more feel, understanding and exposure to the game and is the son of a professional coach and former NFL player.
So, can Kaufusi supplant Ziggy as a major defensive terror on BYU roster?
the plan, said Bronson, smiling so wide it almost broke his face.
Today, Kaufusi is in the best shape of his life, with the momentum of athletic training for the first time in four years.
While playing for Timpview football powerhouse, Bronson had ACL surgery at the start of his senior year. This came after receiving an invite to the Under Armor AllAmerican game. Then he went on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints directly after high school.
Within 48 hours of his return from his mission last summer, Kaufusi was practicing football. After the 2012 football season, he again had no offseason conditioning when he immediately joined BYU basketball team.
When basketball ended in March, Kaufusi finally got a chance to have offseason training. Since his mission his body fat index has come down from 23 to 10 percent. His family looks at his mission picture and laughs at the difference. Trainers say Kaufusi is a crazy workout fanatic and his father and BYU conditioning coaches have counseled him this summer to slow down and take a day or two off.
In other words, in 2013 BYU will get far more production from Kaufusi than in 2012 and significantly more than they ever got from Ansah as a sophomore.
Ziggy is a humble, quiet, almost shy athlete who didn exactly heat up to interviews with media.
Kaufusi enthusiasm is like a neon sign it lights up a room. He is so eager, anxious and accommodating, you wonder what kind of vitamin he been chewing.
His mother Michelle calls Bronson her little body because all his life he entered a room on the move, in motion, never stopping, never at rest and he was always a little flame.
