Wish this weren't so. I really like Jay and his style of play.

Iowa City, IA

I feel for the Utes, losing Watkins indefinitely. It is always tough for a team to adjust to playing without a starter late in the season, let alone doing so for it's second-leading scorer and assist leader. Best of luck moving forward!

Orem, UT

Tough break for Jay. Back problems for big men in basketball are very common.

Chris Collinsworth is out for the season for BYU; they'll apply for a medical redshirt, so he may still get to play with Kyle one more year after Kyle completes his mission.

Good luck to both players.

Get well Jay.

Hate to see a kid get injured and lose out on any of his college time like this. I hope he can recover.


Get rid of Boylen! U are gone, Jim!! pack it up and move out. you've managed to be as bad as Giacoletti.

Frisco, TX

I feel bad for Jay, especially since it's his senior year.

And this is another tough break for a Ute team that's already on the ropes.

Cedar Hills, UT

Get well J Wat!

We lost a player too, injuries really hurt in basketball.
