    Utah-Hawaii Alum,

    Ute basketball compares to BYU, the way Barney Fife compares to Dirty Harry.

    Your rhetoric makes no sense at all.

    Pay no attention to our jealous little friend from the hill - even in their glory days, the Utes never had a player the calibre of Jabari Parker.

    The fact that BYU is still being considered by Jabari is a tribute to how far Dave Rose has brought BYU in only seven seasons, and it's driving the jealous hill trolls mad.

    Utah Hawaii Alum-----Yes you are completely right again. Danny Ainge was a total failure in the NBA.

    Seriously??? A Ute talking smack about BYU hoops? We all know you're obsessed with trying to make yourself feel better by desperately trying to bash all things BYU but this has to be your most pathetic attempt ever!

    Jabari Parker wants to play real college hoops to elevate his NBA value. BYu has NEVER produced a great NBA player, or has ever competed on the national stage. Parker will go to Duke........a real program.

    I've played basketball at a very high level. Being a Hoosier, and playing against amazingly talented players both in high school and college - and after watching these Lone Peak boys play, I'm a believer.

    Nick Emery in my opinion is one of the most dynamic players to come out of this state. His shot is so quick, and he can shoot from anywhere, he's near impossible to defend. I believe he'll be the next Jimmer - but Nick actually plays defense.

    I don't know how Emery wasn't Mr. Basketball last year - I've seen Loveridge play, he's good, but will not have the impact Emery will have.

    I've been a fan of TJ for years. I've watched that kid since 7th Grade play in AAU tournaments. Incredibly talented, and I agree with the article, he's a natural, very good!

    I'm amazed that two of the best players to come along in a while are from the same team.

    BYU is in great hands with these three recruits alone. Should be fun to watch.

    I love the video on youtube about Tyler and how diligently he worked to get to where he is. My favorite quote from it is when his dad says (in referencing his son's diligence and determination),

    "‎Sometimes maybe not having the most natural talent or ability is not the worse thing in the world."

    I've shared this with my own kids and the YW in our ward as I've talked about our abilities to develop talents in new things. I'm looking forward to watching Tyler play.

    Combining talent with character makes it easy to be a fan of the Cougar athletes.

    It sure is nice to support an all around great sports program where every sport is not just competitive but actually extremely good.

    In the coming year(s), BYU will make another run at the Sweet Sixteen and perhaps the Final Four. The program that Dave Rose has built is top notch. The talent he has recruited is impressive. Looking forward to BYU basketball for many years to come.

    I agree with BigCougar that Utah produces more than its fair share of basketball talent. I believe there is zero chance of landing Jabari. However, given the talent of the three Lone Peak boys alone BYU should be able to maintain or surpass the success they've seen in the last few years, which is quite impressive. I believe that BYU is slowly but surely becoming a real basketball power and the future is very bright for Rose and Company.

    The level of local talented HS basketball in UTah is impressive. I can't wait to see Emery, Mika, the 2 Haws boys all on the floor at the same time. That will be quite a team. Now if we can just convince Jabari Parker to join them.
