    I see it as a disservice to BYU football to talk about recruiting, but not bring up the Creamery. In my opinion, BYU landed Kearsley due to the Creamery, not in spite of it. I honestly believe that more kids would go to BYU if they knew existed and that it would be available to them for 4 straight years.
