PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Snow College safety Andrew Rich, honored as one of the best players in junior-college football, turned down scholarships to play as a walk-on at Brigham Young.

"I just felt like, overall, BYU is the place where I am supposed to be," Rich said. "It just felt right."

He was offered scholarships at Boise State and California.

Rich will get the privileges that scholarship athletes receive at BYU without the scholarship. He will get an opportunity to earn one.

"I am going to work hard, and if I get (a scholarship), I get one," said Rich, who played prep football at Bonneville High School in Washington Terrace.

He will have four years to use three seasons of eligibility at BYU. ------ Information from: The Salt Lake Tribune, http://www.sltrib.com
