    Three Star who will serve a mission first. Any scouting reports on his abilities? He's a biggesh guard.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    Solid recruit. Creighton and Utah really wanted him. 1st player from powerhouse Wasatch Academy that BYU will get.

    Spencer Johnson signs with Byu. I wonder what happened to him and Oregon, which is where I thought he signed. I just found out he’s been playing at SLCC. Sure would be nice to have him on the roster this year.

    Edit: I was confusing him with his brother Isaac. Would be nice to have Isaac transfer after the mission.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes.

    New Mexico JC wing Gideon George committed today. I had never heard of him. He's from Nigeria and looks like a very athletic wing who can defend, block shots, and rebound. Highlights look like he gets his points from putbacks, dunks and plays around the rim. He and Baxter will both be juniors. It will be interesting to see how they fit on the floor together as non-shooters.

    Is this the recruit that was in attendance at the Gonzaga game? That was probably pretty convincing.

    Van Komen transferring, BYU mentioned. Not sure 7-4 guys fit the modern game.

    I doubt BYU offers him a scholarship but we will see.

    Jesse Wade has got to be medically retired leaving BYU with 3 open scholarships.

    I think BYU picks up two grad transfers. I think Isaiah White from UVU will be one and the other will hopefully be a playmaker with pg abilities, I like the Rich Kelly kid from Quinipac. I think the last scholarship goes to either a HS PG or perhaps Justice Hill out of SLCC- but a pg for the future.

    I also wonder how the mission kids coming home early might shake things up but I am an optimist so I think the Church will be ramping up missionary efforts in the fall so I think kids will go on missions but they might not serve a full 24 months.

    Is Rich Kelly hearing from BYU or interested?

    I have no clue specifically but a poster on cougar board, BYUprof I think, who tends to have some insight into hoops program mentioned him in a senior transfer thread as somebody BYU had a shot at. I read up on him and my understanding is he is looking for a higher profile program that also has a good MBA program. Utah is a long way from Connecticut, and he is a NE Catholic Irish boy and my understanding is Notre Dame wants him so it might be a long shot, but with him and Isaiah White along with the other returners BYU might be an enticing fit. A chance to be a key playmaker on a team that plays a fun system and might be good enough to win a game in the tourney while also getting an MBA from a good business school. We shall see. I will say this about Pope, I think the fellow is really smart and really competitive. Let it be the two I mentioned or others but I really believe he will find a couple of players that helps BYU to a successful year.

    Funny. I remember him being #44. Must have changed when Eaton arrived? Hmmm

    Kelly is going to BC according to reports.

He's lumbering and not nearly as athletic as guys he'll be going up against at the PF spot outside of WCC play -- and I don't need a linked clip of him in a dunk contest at 6'9" dunking with no one guarding him as proof to the contrary. I think the short-term future of BYU hoops is very bright, but I don't think Dastrup will be a big reason why. Happy to be wrong about the kid.

    He seemed a little unhinged mentally. I wish we could have kept him at BYU. I think he could have developed into a pretty good player.

    Right. When you can't play a guy because he's a turnstyle on defense due to being really slow and cemented to the ground because of poor conditioning, it does speak to talent somewhat. I suppose there would have been a place for Payton as a Jared Dudley type where you space the floor with him for a couple open corner 3 looks per game, but there's that whole problem of having to run back and defend the other side of the floor. That doesn't really fit the profile of a top 100 National recruit with offers from Kansas, Arizona, OSU, et al. He was on the BYU roster when we were so devoid of talent, we had to start and play Luke Worthington in meaningful frontcourt minutes.

    Roger, the guy was buried at the depth chart at Oregon State. Clearly, nobody other than a few BYU fans who overrate him being really good at "horse" one day against Utah are still wondering. The data and evidence is pretty clear- nobody he has played for at the college level thought enough of him to put him in the game very often or for very long.

    Whatever the reason lets just accept that he isn't very good.

    If nothing more, he made us feel good about ourselves and BYU Basketball for a time, so I give him credit for that.

    Yes, he did seem like a good guy. We need more good guys in the world.
