Thread: BYU IS HERE TO STAY

  1. #1

    Default BYU IS HERE TO STAY

    Brandon Averette transferred yesterday from Utah Valley to BYU. Grad transfer immediately eligible. Will be BYU's starting PG next year.

    It is truly remarkable what Mark Pope has done already. IMO, he has shown me more in 1 and a half years than Rose showed me in about ten.

    This coming year I will predict they will be a top 25 team once again, despite losing so much, and will be a tough beat for the Zags each time we play them. TONS of size. Good shooters. Good athleticism. All they needed was a pg.. and now they got a pargo-esque Brandon Averette. I like their squad alot.

    Pope can really recruit.

    Their roster:

    Brandon Averette PG - 13 PPG last year at Utah Valley, former Okie State PG
    Alex Barcello- Pg/SG- Arizona Transfer- 9ppg last year
    Connor Harding 6'6-6 ppg last year
    Wyatt Lowell-6'10 Shooter . Sat out last year from UTah Valley.. Can really shoot it
    Matt Harms- 7'3 Purdue Transfer-- Stud

    Richard Harward- Another big stud. 7'0 transfer from Utah Valley
    Caleb Loehner- Stole from Utah. Stop 150 recruit.
    Gavin Baxter-6'9 super athletic
    Gideon George- very athletic 6'6 wing.. 15 points and 8 rebounds last year at juco.
    Kolby Lee- Another Big dude. 6'9 averaged 7 ppg last year
    Spencer Johnson- juco shooter. can light it up
    Jesse Wade-- is like their 10th man. Apparently he is healthy now.

    Based on the players listed, Wade is one of 3 guards, so not the 10th man.
    It's not funny.

    I think BYU will also be very good this year. I agree Pope has done a great job. It will be interesting to see how all the talent fits together. But with some perimeter shooting now that they have Barcello and Averette along with their length and height they will be a force in the WCC. Still like GU much better if our guys come back.

    Imagine being a Utah Valley basketball fan and then seeing BYU poach away everything. That's gotta be tough.
