Ziggy came to BYU in 2008 as a track athlete before moving to football in 2009. He’s a guy that has been mentioned a lot over the past two seasons as someone to watch and thus far has only contributed in small roles. He’s someone that I specifically watched when I attended the spring scrimmage and while the offense was mostly comprised of back ups, Ansah was consistently in the backfield hurrying the QB. He is lighting fast from the edge rush (he’s listed on byucougars.com as a linebacker, but he lined up primarily in the defensive end position during the scrimmage and he didn’t disappoint me at all. If this guy can get some meaningful minutes on the defensive line this season I think he will make a serious impact on opposing teams.
