RECRUITING: Moapa Valley’s Hymas commits to Weber State

Moapa Valley quarterback Zach Hymas made an oral commitment to Weber State, Pirates coach Brent Lewis said Monday.

Hymas’ commitment is nonbinding, and the first day he can sign a letter of intent is Feb. 4. College coaches cannot comment until that time.

The 6-foot-3-inch, 185-pound Hymas guided Moapa Valley (13-0) to the Division I-A state title and was named the Sunrise League offensive Most Valuable Player.

As a senior, Hymas completed 60.3 percent of his passes (129-for-214) for 2,159 yards and 26 touchdowns with just four interceptions. Hymas threw for 393 yards and three scores in Moapa Valley’s 42-36 come-from-behind victory over Desert Pines in the state final.

Hymas is the second local player to commit to the Football Championship Subdivision school, joining Las Vegas running back Elias Miller.
