Love this kid.

Columbia, MO

I can't help but think that Dave Rose has had some second thoughts about the decision to cut Ziggy from the basketball team, especially after conning Bronson Kafusi into joining the team this year to get some depth. Ziggy might have helped a lot.

However, I suspect that Ziggy is glad that things worked out the way they did. He's in a great position in the NFL draft.

I like this kid too.

Go, Ziggy. :)

A lot has happened in Ansah's life in the past year or so. He is about to experience a major change in his life and pocketbook. Odds are, he will handle it well.

As for the fan, we didn't even know this guy existed until he busted on the scene like a hurricane. Ansah is a project, but his talent and character are going to be hard to pass up by many a GM. He could be picked up early in the draft.

No comment from ChrisB? i figured she would be the first one on here saying how Ziggy will amount to nothing in the NFL since he is out of BYU. On a more positive note, I cant wait to see Ziggy suit up in the NFL! He is an absolute stud! Go Cougs!

Go Ziggy. Awesome inspirational story in sports.

I sought the same guidance when I was trying to get to the NFL. It didn't work for me.
Maybe the person who's guidance is being sought doesn't care about who goes to the NFL.

@ Ernest T. Bass

Maybe the person seeking the guidance isn't asking to get into the NFL. Maybe he's seeking guidance to handle the challenges that come from where his life seems to be heading.

Then again, maybe you and I shouldn't presume to understand someone else's faith and what makes them tick.

Side by side stories of Leota (U) and Ansah (BYU) are polar differences.

Ansah has been an inspiration to many football players, coaches, and fans. I'm grateful that Dave Rose saw where his talent was and pushed him in the right direction toward Bronco Mendenhall and football. I hope we hear great things about him in his future career in the NFL. Good luck!

Go Cougars!

@ Ernest T.

Maybe you should stop throwing rocks, as Andy and Barney have instructed you to do.
And then, you too may find some peace in your life.

If the Heavenly Father is really looking out for Ansah's health he will advise him to go into a career that doesn't destroy his body and possibly his brain!

ETB, then again maybe HE does care about who goes in the NFL, and who can provide an outstanding example. I believe we have seen indications of this before now. Best wishes, Ziggy. This is from someone who does not watch football.

ernie is a real credit to the university of utah and its "fan"base.

@ ernest t bass "It didn't work for me".: I don't know but maybe you just didn't have it and God wasn't up to miracles that day.

Farmington, UT

Awww...come on guys! Don't spoil ETB's fun! Trolling the DesNews Comments section is the only thing that keeps his motor revving all day! Just throw him a little "Red" meat from time to time and he'll be content.

Salt Lake City, UT

I usually don't read the comment boards, so maybe I'm oblivious to common frequent commenter knowledge, but Ernest didn't say a thing about the U. I think it's funny how all the Cougars on the board instantly assume he's a Ute. He could be a Memphis Tiger for all we know... lol.

Earnest is a Utah troll who is fond of throwing constant and sometimes comical jabs at BYU.

Please. You should talk. You are the perfect yin to ETB's yang.

Magic happens?

Like most of you, I saw Ziggy come from nowhere and dazzle everybody. Granted, he had great help from the others on BYU's stellar defense, but as they say, you can't teach fast. He'll play pro ball and he'll be good if he doesn't get hurt. Very least, he'll be able to support his whole family in Accra. And with his BYU math and accounting degree, he'll be able to put that big head start to a good purpose. He'll be very rich and successful, unlike most pro athletes who are broke five years after they leave the league.

As for Ernest T. Bass, I'm a fan. I don't care who he is, he's funny rat thar! Keep it up, Ernie! Too bad Chris B and Navel Vet don't have a sense of humor. Sadly, they think they are insightful.
