Was he losing his starting job, or what was going on?

"...decided to transfer..."??? - or was he nudged out the door to free up a scholarship?

Just an honest question, and I'm not passing judgement as it can be the best thing for the student athlete depending on his/her goals.

Let the speculation begin


Another future Kansas starter?

Best of luck to him though - I was really excited to see him come out of HS, and I thought for sure he would make a big splash at the Y. I guess it wasn't in the cards.

It's sad to see you leaving the program, but we wish you well wherever you go Josh.

You've been a great example during your time here at BYU!


Y/U fans, insert unfounded character/academic assumption here: _____________.

In April he dedicated this season to his brother, who died in an accident last year.. and then 4 months later he quits. I think he's having some troubles dealing with life right now. Best of luck to Josh.. wherever he goes.

Godspeed Josh!

Before you go off and leave some contentious statement, remember who you are and what you represent.

What? wasn't he was supposed to be an important part of this year's one-two punch out of the backfield? I wish I knew the details behind him leaving.

I remember coaches raving about how great of a fit he was for BYU and he even talked about how much he liked it here. I'm not judging, I know he's had some difficult things happen in his family, but just like Jake Heaps, what does he expect to gain from transferring? Does he think he will be a starter somewhere else? I don't know, I'm just asking.

I don't want to accuse him of being selfish but moves like this sometimes come across as a not-team-first type of a move. JJ DiLuigi struggled with wanting to transfer early in his career and he was never really granted the "starting" nod, but JJ showed he was a team guy by sticking out his career here and doing the very best with what he was given. I really thought that Juice was going to be the same type of a guy, but . . . maybe I was wrong. Hopefully Adam Hine/Jamaal Williams fill in.

And you whine about my comments?

Good luck to you 'Juice', appreciated your contributions to BYU.

Provo, UT

Folks, look at this for what it is; he has mentioned nothing about football and everything about his family situation. He talks to his siblings every day and is a good big brother looking out for them. They may be having a hard time and he may be,too. Chris B., grow up and show a little bit of sensitivity. Your constant gloating is a poor representation of most Ute fans that I know.


Good luck, Josh. I hope things work out well for you and your grieving family.

Learn when to let up Chris B.

Sorry Juice and Y fans ... Chris B does NOT represent how the majority of U fans really think and act.

Salt Lake City, UT

Hang in there Josh. Good luck wherever you go.

Too bad. I was really looking forward to Juice and Alisa lining up together.

Best of luck, Juice.

Salt Lake City, UT

A U fan with some class, well said motorbike. I imagine Chris B can't be older than 14 with the maturity he displays. I know the Y has some commentors that are in the same boat. It's pretty weak.

I hope the best for you Josh.

Proud Ute

No sniping or second guessing. I'm sure this was not an easy decision to make.
Best wishes to the young man.
