Just when you think you've seen all of BYU superstar Jimmer Fredette's highlights, ESPN provides a link to Fredette family home movies, showing little Jimmer displaying his basketball prowess at a young age.

ESPN.com's Eamonn Brennan writes about how Jimmer has inspired poems and musical tributes. ESPN also has a link to the video of the song "You've Been Jimmer'd" by the Jimmer Jammers (which includes LaVell Edwards, Shawn Bradley and Chad Lewis).

Yahoo Sports examines the question: Is Jimmer is good enough to carry the Cougars to the Final Four in Houston?

The Jimmer Show is going international -- here's a story on him from the Toronto Sun.

The Bleacher Report also asks if Jimmer can be the next Stephen Curry.

The Des Moines Register offers insight into Jimmer's recruitment out of high school. The Colorado Springs Gazette calls Jimmer "a basketball radical." And the same publication evaluates where Jimmer ranks in Mountain West Conference history.
