"They're fitting in. They're aggressive and confident," Zylstra said. "We're excited to have them. They will have a role on this year's team."

Zylstra added that the Cougars are already establishing an identity.

"I thought last year's team was well-rounded and pretty deep. This year, we're even more well-rounded and deeper," he said. "We've got guys that can come off the bench and defend and make shots."

For now, Zylstra isn't spending much time thinking about the fact this is his final season in a Cougar uniform. While he's too busy to wax nostalgic, the sense of urgency is there. Zylstra simply wants to help lead BYU to a big season, one that he hopes will include a conference championship.

"I've thought a little bit about this being my senior year. It's kind of surreal right now," he said. "It will probably hit me when I play my last game or once I finish. Right now, I'm just working hard, like any other year."
