    There is if Zylstra or Martineau don't get scholarships next year.

    I'd say James Anderson, but Rose likes him, so I don't see it happening.

    In order to keep the momentum the program has built, I think they absolutely need to pull the schollie from Zylstra and bring in a JUCO guard to help out next year, especially since Carlino won't be available until conference season.

    It seems they usually find a reason someone has a career ending injury so they can keep a scholarship till they graduate. Or it shouldn't be a problem to pull Zylstra's. He came as walk on and was granted one because they had an extra one, right?

    Rose has pulled schollies before just because guys suck. Most recently he pulled Gavin Mcgregor and Derek Dawes schollies.

    I didn't know Dawes had his pulled. Makes sense. Still, I see Rose as reluctant to do this. Would Zylstra be the most obvious candidate? I wonder if a commitment of sort was make to Martineau post-mission.

    The basketball scholarships are for one year only. Zylstra was commenting about this in an article recently and that he has to work hard to keep it and even then no guarantees.

    Dawes injuries were too bad that he couldn't play. I suppose you could still consider Rose having pulled his schollie, but it's not because Dawes was bad. He was that, but he quit because of injuries.

    With all the recruiting talk today I got to thinking about an old friend. He was a stud in his day though only 6 feet tall. I googled his kid's name because I heard a few years back that he was killing it in AAU in Nevada. Looks like the D-news just did a feature on him. He's short like his dad was but sounds like he can play. No D1 offers yet but apparently all the Utah schools are at least watching. Sounds like he's the local Jimmer in his little Nevada town.

    http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...lent.html?pg=1

    Last December, BYU assistant Dave Rice even made the 10-hour, round-trip drive from Provo in the middle of a snowstorm to see Walker score 43 points and sink 10 3-pointers against Enterprise.

    But Walker continues to be one of those watch-and-follow prospects. Realistically, unless he fills out and gets stronger, he's probably going to be asked by the bigger schools to either walk on or prove himself first at a junior college.

    Walker is hopeful that a strong senior season will give him a better option.

    "I've always wanted to sign D-I, but if I have to go to a JC first or walk on, then that's what I have to do. I hope I don't have to go that route, but I will if I need to," he said.

    I loved that story. I hope the kid walks on at BYU. Could be another JC Carrol.

    The only reason Boylen hasn't offered this kid is because Boylen knows he won't be the coach when the kid gets back off his mission.

    I hope he walks on at BYU as well. I have a feeling he'll wind up with an offer somewhere else though. That was a smart move to play AAU in Utah this past year. I'm guessing that's how he got the D-news pub.

    Was wondering if some of our Vegas guys could comment on this piece of the story:

    The Lynx played three Nevada 4A schools last year and Walker scored more than 40 twice, even dumping 47 on Chaparral High out of Las Vegas.
    Is Chaparral High a big time Vegas school?

    Its no Findley Prep or Gorman. I don't know much about it other than where it is, which is right off the 515/95 at about Charleston in a not good area of town. Its not a small school, I don't think.

    I noticed that this kid is only 5'10". How tall is his dad? He's going to have a hard time at any school unless he grows a few more inches.

    Also, its nice to put a face on KLNR Panaca (KTPH Tonopah).

    I know Chaparral is a good sized public school but they don't seem to be a dominant force in producing D-1 players.

    Default Chapparel is a white flight school

    mostly hispanics now, and not many blacks. So the basketball is probably mediocre.

    Dantley Walker dropped 73 last week. It's the third time he's gone over 60 this season. That is the new Nevada HS single game record. He also already broke Luke Babbit's career record.

    You can watch the game here:

    I'd rather give a kid like this a chance than use a schollie on a guy like Martineau (who is a great guy, I'm sure).

    Seems like BYU has some great talent to draw from in the coming years (Chatman, Haws, Emery, etc.), but is anyone else a bit worried that they're all 1's and 2's and basically all our talent right now is at those spots (Haws, Collinsworth -- arguably a 3, Harrison, Carlino, etc.).

    Is there any LDS talent in the pipeline over 6'7" or so? What happened to the glory days of recruits like Dan Howard?

    I thought we have a bunch of skinny stiffs in the pipeline: the two kids from Lone Peak, and the kids from San Diego whose other offer was from Army.

    Isaac Neilson (6'10), Nate Austin (6'9), Ian Harward (6'10) are all bigs that signed recently. Also Jordan Loveridge is a junior and already 6'7.

    I guess I meant it more as a question about top LDS talent. I know we've signed some guys with size, but all our top recruits in the coming years are guards, and all our best young talents also play one of the two guard spots. It would be nice if there was some good sized talent coming up. We know Jabari is on the horizon, but I don't think that one is going to happen.

    The only other guy I can think of is Roscoe Allen. But our chances are probably better of landing Jabari than Roscoe. He's 6'7 but not LDS IIRC.

    I watched him the other night against Long Beach Poly. Not real impressed to be honest. Of course the game was dominated by Shabazz Muhammad so that may be why.

    Another Isaac Neilson story here.

    Looks like the refs let him get away with an offensive basket interference to get the win for his team.

    UNLV lands commitment from high-powered scoring guard Dantley Walker

    Walker is a senior at the tiny 2A school in Panaca, located about 165 miles north of Las Vegas, but will head off on a two-year Mormon mission after graduating this spring. He'll be a freshman in the 2013-14 season if the commitment and all else holds.

    ----------------

    Kruger traveled to Needles two weeks ago to watch Walker play, and simply beat his peers to the punch on extending a scholarship offer. Others who had shown interest but not yet offered included BYU and Utah State.

    Wood said he believes that the two years away from competition will do Walker some good physically, as he could use about another 10 or 15 pounds on his frame to help him compete at the D-I level. Walker currently plays at between 155 and 160 pounds.
    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."
