    So if I count correctly Utah has one player with 4 stars totaling 4 stars for the team. BYU have multiple players with many stars totaling 22 stars. Can't wait to see this matchup. LOL

    Chris B. is a typical ute fan. You are so obsessed by the star rating. When are you going to focus on winning stop focusing on the stars. Please I urge you to stop thinking that the utes are more than they truly are. Just because you land 1 four star athlete doesn't mean you have made it to the top of the mountain. The fact of the matter is that utah utes aren't that interesting of a school. It gets overshadowed by other schools because you are trying to be like every other school in the country, those other schools you are trying to be like are more interesting, they have more history, their program is more attracting. At least BYU knows who they are, they are a Mormon School, they have an identity they go after kids that fit their program and those kids want to come to BYU.

    Wow...6'7" as a 15 year old. Will be interesting to see what position he ends up playing when he gets to the Y. Great to see he has shooting range, but if he keeps growing he may get a chance to use some of those post up skills.

    Your sister is right about coming to BYU because she loves her coach Jeff Judkins and you will love Dave Rose. They are trully two great coaches.

    Chris B,

    I don't know why I even respond to a word you say, and I normally don't, but PLEASE stop! As a Ute fan I truly wish you'd pick a different team to root for. That said, I don't think you're really even a Ute fan in the first place. I think you're simply a BYU hater.

    On a different note, congrats to Cougar Nation. I believe Zac may be one of your best recruits yet. Just seems like a very good all around player who also looks to share the ball. Every team can use a player like Zac.

    Good for you. Maybe your team will be ranked higher than UVU's basketball team... or not. I'm sure they'll be better than the Highland High basketball team though.

    Also, if we're comparing our recruits you might want to read the following:
    We already had T.J. Haws (4 stars). Now what else, Dalton Nixon (3 stars), and Jake Toolson (2 stars); now add in Zac (3 stars) and last year's class with Mika (4 stars), Emery (4 stars), and Worthington (2 stars). There's no question who has done a better job recruiting.

    You're going to need A LOT MORE than just one good recruit.

    Utah: over the last 2 years has had 1 four-star and 1 three-star recruit.
    BYU: in the last 2 years has had 3 four-star and 3 three-star recruits.

    Sweet! Welcome to Cougarnation Zac! You should fit in really well here, and you'll appreciate being able to participate in your second sport: dancing. You should be doing that every March, probably for a few weeks each season.

    Three stars now (as a fifteen year old?), almost assuredly 4 stars later, and ESPN top 100 (like three other recent recruits). BYU is stringing together the most impressive recruiting classes in their history. I would guess they will have three top 25 classes in a row. It's good to be a Coug!

    Zac seems like a great prospect, nice to hear he is improving, always looking for that in a player. Looking like BYU will be able to continue having some great basketball teams!

    and we got Brekkot Chapman!

    four stars are better than 3 stars
