Four-star offensive tackle Austin Pay’s official visit to BYU

BYU hosted a large group of official guests on campus this past weekend. One of the late recruits was local four-star forward Austin Pay. Pay, the younger brother of BYU center Connor Pay, is one of the state’s most coveted recruits in the 2025 recruiting class. He is ranked the third-ranked in-state prospect in the 2025 class, according to 247Sports.

Pay originally scheduled his official visit to Texas A&M for the weekend. Instead, he took a short trip to Provo for an official visit to BYU.

Pay is very familiar with the BYU football program. He has made numerous unofficial visits and BYU is in his blood. His dad Garry Pay played offensive tackle for BYU in the late 1980s and early 1990s. His oldest brother Connor Pay is BYU’s starting offensive lineman as of 2021. His older brother Trevor recently returned from his deployment and will join the program as a preferred walk-on.

Even though Austin knows almost everything about the BYU football program, being invited on an official visit is still an important step in his recruitment. Official visits are exceptional and in almost all cases an official visit is required to make any commitment.

In terms of recruiting profiles, Austin Pay has the most prestigious recruiting profile in the Pay family. He is the tallest Pay brother, standing 6’7 tall. His length makes him a top prospect at tackle. He has competitive offers from Oregon, Texas A&M, Florida, Baylor, Auburn, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, UCLA and Utah, among others.

To acquire Austin’s services, the Cougars will have to beat out some of the biggest names in the sport. If that happens, they will have a staple on their offensive line in the future, much like Connor Pay did for the BYU football program.

Austin Pay will be a top priority for BYU offensive line coach TJ Woods throughout this recruiting cycle.
