    Rumors swirling that Brandon Averette is the next piece coming as a grad transfer. Fun player who played at UVU the last year and first two seasons at Oklahoma State. He's quick and looks like a useful point guard.

    Last 8 games at UVU he averaged 15.5 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 3 apg, 51.1% fg, 41% 3p

    Supposedly his paperwork is being approved through the interminably long grad transfer student process. That's certainly possible as BYU does nothing swiftly.

    Another transfer target has emerged for BYU basketball - things are trending in the right direction between BYU and Brandon Averette. Averette is a graduate transfer from UVU who averaged 12.8 points on 45.8% shooting last season. He also averaged 3 assists and 2 rebounds per game in his only season at UVU. (Sports Reference) Averette played his first two seasons of college basketball at Oklahoma State before transferring and committing to Mark Pope when he was at UVU.

    Quickness

    The first thing that Averette would bring is quickness and an ability to beat his man off the dribble. Averette is listed at 5'11, so he relies on his quickness to create space. Paired with reliable handles, Averette is very difficult to contain on the perimeter.

    Scoring

    BYU will have a lot of talented pieces on the roster, but BYU is lacking a proven scorer at the D1 level. Averette isn't a guy who could average 20 points per game, but he would be a consistent scorer and a guy who could average 11-13 points per game at BYU.

    Creating

    Averette fits a need on BYU's roster - he can create shots for himself and for his teammates. BYU is loaded along the front court and a player like Averette would help maximize the potential of BYU's front court. Like I mentioned above, Averette is quick and is able to penetrate opposing defenses which opens passing windows to the big guys down low.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Reminds me a little of Tony Parker. Fantastic near the rim and a whole lot of work to do from deep. At the very least, he could really excel at getting our shooters open looks.

    Seems like there's definitely an opportunity for him on this roster. Don't see anyone else with his skillset.

    Cool. And hair cut above the ears!

    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    LOL - I had that thought too. Denver sticks out like a sore thumb on that list.

    I also thought about cracking on Western Kentucky but then realized that my criticism of their program might hit a little bit too close to my BYU home.

    yeah, i thought about wku as well, but they've had a pretty good program the last few years under the current coach.
