Is this really news?

Salt Lake City, UT

I am Ute fan and could not be happier the best talent is staying in state at Utah, BYU and Utah State. Good luck to this kid and hopefully all three teams can get into the NCAA's at the same time in the next few years.

Welcome to Cougarnation Ryan! You're a welcome addition to one of the most talented classes to ever suit up for BYU.

Gotta luv the constant jealousy of the kids on the hill, trying to look uninterested as BYU is assembling one of the greatest basketball recruiting classes the state of Utah has ever seen.

Only if you are a fan of BYU.

Well, I suppose if you are a fan of Utah, Utah State or BSU,too. Just not good news.

Congratz to Byu on another great get. You will have a very good team in 2 or 3 years when you get all those Lone Peak kids back.

Hope Utah can meet you in the final four..how great would that be. Nothing is better for the state then when all of the Utah schools do well.

Article does not mention when he will be a freshman at BYU--assuming fall of 2014? Would have been nice if the article provided this important detail.

I am thrilled that such a fine young man would pick BYU to play basketball. He has certainly picked a fine program and the best coach for him. Congratulations, Ryan! Have a great season next year!

Go Cougars!

Does anyone know this kids dads name? I think I served a mission with him

Great kid with a great upside. Needs some more muscle, but that will come. Looks like another good get for the cougars.

Highland, UT

Great news, we love Ryan and are very glad he chose BYU.

Really glad to see all of the highly recruited player stay instate. As a Ute fan I think most of us saw this coming after yesterdays news of Mr. Chapman committing to the U. Looks like we'll enjoy good basketball in the state of Utah for a long time to come. Congrats to the young fella for choosing a school that fits him best and where he will get an excellent education.

Roy, UT

Like to see a true Center recruited, who could defend well in the post & be a rebounder with some muscle.

Bountiful, UT

so is he 6'10" or 6'8"?

Cottonwood Heights, UT

Great recruiting win for BYU. Pretty sure his recruiting would've picked up quite a bit this coming year had he not committed early. So for those who only see the four offers and think this wasn't a big deal, not true. Andrus could be a good one.
Congrats on the scholarship and good luck to this young man... but go Utes!

Big Time! Welcome to BYU! Two athletic bigs down low with Mika and now Andrus. Oh man, flat out awesome!

Go Cougars!

Great news for everyone if you look at the whole picture. There was a time when every top Utah kid had either UCLA or Stanford even Duke in their headlights. If offered they were gone only to be seen if the NCAA tourney came to town. It seems now that the very same type kids, mostly LDS then just as now, are looking first at BYU, then if for some reason they see a difficult fit, they move up the hill to Utah. I would love to see Utah State dominate recruiting in Montana and Idaho, as well as picking up the rural Utah kids that don't head off to the larger schools. They really face zero competition having any tradition, in both northernly states, Boise has been terrible far longer than even Utah, the Montana schools playing in the 'Sky have not the exposure as they would in the MWC.
