Burley's Adams signs with BYU Track

BURLEY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Brylie Adams inked with the Cougars Tuesday afternoon. BYU recruited her for the 100 meter hurdles.

She pr'ed in May, with a time of 14.94 seconds during the preliminary round of the 4A state championships. Her goal is to reduce that time to 14.14 seconds.

In 2018, Adams won districts and took third at state, which she tells me the two girls that beat her will be back this spring, giving her a chance to get revenge.

Adams transferred from Colorado to Burley in 2016 and since then has been making steady strides.

The senior wants to try to the 300 hurdles for the first time ever this coming track season.

Her future college coaches noticed her abilities at BYU track camp.

Adams said, "I went on an official visit for UVU and there were some other colleges that reached out, but BYU was the number one choice always."

"I honestly have to say that I think she'll make it as a Division I athlete, the others went and did their year and found out it was too hard, too much like a job," explained Burley track and field coach Kevin Green. "And I was a four year Division I athlete in track and field, so I know what they are going to be doing. If this is the route you want to go, it's like a job. it's not like high school track. You can't get away with not showing up to practice, you can't get away with a lot of things."

Green went to the University of Oklahoma.

Meanwhile, he says there are plenty of returning girls for the Lady Bobcats and the boys will rely on the talents of Jacob DeTemple.
