BYU would love to have him. BYU hasn't had a decent big man in years. Brandon Davies does a good job at center, but he isn't tall enough. I think Jabari + BYU = Magic


'If he commits, BYU may have the #5 recruiting class.'

So What, does that mean on paper byu has a final 4 team.
that'll be the day

Is Jabari now considering going on a mission right out of high school and then going straight to the NBA draft?

Regardless of which school he attends or if he might have some other plans, the exposure he has received has been terrific. A great young man who is also a superior basketball talent is humble rather than entitled, a very good and serious student rather than just getting by. Hat's off to a set of wonderful parents who were able to raise their kids with their lives in balance. I read a comment on SI which made a piont of claiming that Jabari wouldn't be getting the publicity and exposure if he went to BYU, that he would receive at the other 4 schools. I guess they have forgotten the name Jimmer and the most enjoyable year of college basketball I can recall. Or those battles between top 5 schools BYU and San Diego St which were matchups with two highly regarded schools outside the tourney something not seen in a very long time.
