How fun is it to have BYU's JV program featured by Sports Illustrated? It's going to be even more fun watching these great high school players develop into great college players at BYU.

Ogden, UT


That'd be great but not likely.

Great notoriety for the state and it's basketball. These high schooler's are something else.

I saw Jabari play on ESPNU the other day. He's overrated.

Orem, UT

Even though they are playing for BYU, I am not sure it is likely we will see them for two years because of the missionary age change. It looks like, however, we will have a strong future.

We have a chance to go undefeated with these guys on our team.


@coleman51 Mika will play next year before heading on a mission. Emery has a call already. He leaves for Frankfurt May 1st.
@ThomasJefferson If dastrup comes to the Y then I think this team down the road will be better than Duke. Emery, Haws, Nixon, Dastrup, Mika.. etc.. chatman, collinsworth, worthington will all be around for a part of those years as well.

Too bad they didn't feature Race Parsons from South Sevier. He is one of the top 5 players in the state. BYU should have recruited him as he could add to the talent level after his mission.

"undefeated"? Can't we raise the level of expectation a little higher than that??

@gamer - May 1st? I thought school is out in early June?

Jax Emery did say on his senior year at BYU that we would go undefeated. Well, I wouldn't be surprise that Nick Emery would say the same. We can dream but careful what you say. Three years might be awhile but don't worry warp speed do happen. Nice to see Mika will start early just to play along with Tyler Haws might be worth looking foward to for 2013-14 along with Collinsworth.

Frisco, TX

@gamer - you didn't include Isaac Neilson and Cory Calvert in your list of future stars. Both of which will be impact players. If Dastrup is on the team, we can start talking about our own Fab Five. There's also a chance that DeMarcus Harrison comes back to BYU after his mission. The future is bright!

Wow, that was awful
Salt Lake City, UT

I am embarrassed about the comments.
Sorry, BYU will not be better than Duke.
No, BYU will not go undefeated in the NCAA.

Your fond bias for my school is....So special....

why don't you wait until after they play at byu before you make a statement like that
