BYU basketball: Cougar coach Dave Rose likes newcomers joining the program
“He’s a guy that will bring some real depth to our guard line,” Rose said. “He’ll come in here as a combo guard with the possibility of playing the one, two or three. We’ll see how he adjusts back to the game after being gone for a couple of years.”
The 6-4 Chatman averaged 20.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 steals at Union High in Vancouver, Wash.
Andrus is planning to play one season, then leave for a mission, Rose said.
“He’s a complete post player,” Rose. “He’ll fit in well with our system.”
At 6-10, the American Fork High star will provide BYU with depth inside.
Rose is looking forward to working with those newcomers, as well as the rest of his team, this summer in preparation for next season.
“I’m really excited for the addition of those guys to our roster,” Rose said. “Basically, you’re adding three really good offensive pieces to an already pretty good offensive team. Then you bring Jordan Chatman in and hopefully a healthy Kyle to the group that walked off the court in Milwaukee. Our program is going in a real positive direction. We feel like the future is bright.”
Help is on the way for BYU as the Cougars add three post players and two guards for next season.
