BYU basketball recruit Jordan Chatman has been named the Gatorade boys basketball player of the year for the state of Washington. He will serve a mission to Taiwan before enrolling at BYU.

"Chatman, a 6-foot-4 guard, averaged better than 20 points, six rebounds, with 2.7 assists and nearly two steals a game while leading the Titans to a third-place finish at the Class 4A state tournament in Tacoma," according to the Columbian. "He was named the state tournament MVP after averaging 27 points."

Meanwhile, former BYU star Jimmer Fredette has watched his playing time go down in this his rookie season, but he's receiving plenty of airtime on a Daily Bread Food Storage commercial.

The Cougar football program will hold its spring scrimmage on Saturday.

BYU has been ravaged by injuries, but some players are returning to the field.

Tight end Richard Wilson is battling back from a knee injury that he suffered last fall.
