Dixie State announced that Zach Frampton, a walk-on at BYU during the 2016-17 season, has joined the Trailblazers' program.
Frampton spent a lone season with the Cougars, playing in 13 games for Dave Rose's squad and averaging 0.4 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game in spot play. There he played alongside three other Lone Peak High alums in Eric Mika, Nick Emery and TJ Haws.
The 6-foot-3 guard played his most extensive minutes at BYU in his final Cougar game, during the team's 105-89 loss to UT Arlington in the first round of the NIT. In that game, Frampton played a season-high 17 minutes — the walk-on only played 51 all season — and hit his first 3-pointer of the year. He had three points, four rebounds and as assist in the game.
Frampton won't be the only local Division I transfer on next year's Dixie State team. The Trailblazers also have guard/forward Tyler Ott (UVU), forward Kyler Nielson (Southern Utah), guard Brandon Miller (Utah) and forward/center Austin Montgomery (Utah) on their roster.
Two others players are joining the Dixie State program this season along with Frampton: forward Julien Ducree from Cal State Monterey Bay and former Bingham High star Josh Newbold.
