This kid along with his former teammates are the future of BYU Basketball. The future is looking bright for Roses' boys!

Jimmer didn't even have those kind of numbers in High School, certainly not as a HS Junior. Frank is going to be an amazing talent, glad to have him coming to the Y. Go Cougs!

Sounds great , I hope he is truly committed and once he starts getting more attention he doesn't change his mind and decommit. Don't think he will But...........

This is definitely not good news for any rivals of the Cougars.

Learn to play defense.

Wow! BYU has the makings of GREAT basketball in the future with all these skilled players from Lone Peak. This is incredible playing for a junior in high school!

Go Cougars!

Why can't we ever see these games as they play them? Surely there would be enough viewers that would make it worth while. After all it is an American tournament, at least with American players.

You mean like Lola Mary community, Portland nursing school, and Pepperdine, all schools who beat byU last year?

those rivals?

The question is why was he seen at a few Runnin' Ute games last year following his "commitment" to BYU?

this kid won't have to go to BYU, he will have big time options.. Jabari didn't come to the Y, if this kid keeps progressing he will be playing for a blue blood program, you won't see him running around the WCC

@Big 12 errr Pac Bottomfeeder

Now tell us all which WCC team knocked your Utes out of the NIT?

We have a good rivalry with Grand Canyon University Lopes and we will win them again this year. I bet Frank will decommitt and play for us because of our good rivalry with Evergreen State and when we win them in the future again.

Go Utes!


50 points against a middle eastern team.....that is an accomplishment! Yes, sarcasm intended

Well whether or not Frank keeps his committment to BYU there is one thing that is already settled, he won't be going to utah. He already made his choice of the instate schools known and utah was lacking and came up far short. lol

Cottonwood Heights, UT

If Frank keeps blowing it up and ends up landing offers from either Oregon, Arizona or UCLA - especially UCLA from what I've heard - expect Frank to say adieu to the Cougars. Sources close to Frank say he almost instantly regretted his early commitment to BYU and would have decommitted if it wasn't for his Dad's sway and not wanting to embarrass Coach Rose and his staff. That's not to say Frank doesn't like BYU, it's just saying he was VERY young at the time of the offer/commitment and he almost immediately realized that he should be keeping his options open.

He wasn't, that is just utah "fan" alcohol fueled delusion. He is as solid a BYU commit as there is and the fact that utah "fans" like yourself and all of christina's screen names are getting so "frantic and emotional" about it is highly amusing for the rest of us. Face the facts, he wanted nothing to do with utah and told them so. I can't blame him either, why would anyone want to be associated with yourself, christina, u-pac, naval, wookie, howie, ekute, tomahawk or the others like you? He is a quality kid and wants to attend a place aligned with other quality individuals not a place with the likes of those listed above.

Do you guys realize how much you turn off kids with morals and standards?

Cottonwood Heights, UT


You quickly lose credibility with comments like your last one. Steaknwings is absolutely correct. I saw Frank with my own eyes at two different Utah home games last season - and yes, he was sitting in the Utah invited guest section if that tells you anything.

Please stop blowing people up for stating facts. And the funny thing is, steaknwings seemed to just be asking an honest question ... Knowing that the basis for his/her question is factual, I actually thought he was a BYU fan.

Highland, UT


Your wishful thinking doesn't change reality. Frank is a BYU commit, a solid BYU commit, no matter how much that hurts yo

Maricopa, Az

BYU has had 2 consecutive top 25 recruiting classes. All yet to attend. With or without Frank BYU will be a power soon. There is no reason to believe he won't honor his commitment. All his buddies will be at BYU. Utah fans are panicking and grasping. I don't blame them. This team will be a future power. Whether they play St Mary's of the poor or Duke, This team will rock

You obviously didn't read the rest of the article. Other teams in tournament include Monteverde, Huntington Prep, and Simeon. Three of the elite programs in the country. 3 and 1 record so far. Play the best - Be the best. Why the jealousy of high school boys? Keep going guys.
