    I'm hoping he chooses to go back to BYU but if not, then come out east young man! Virginia will welcome you with open arms!

    Good luck!

    Jake, I'm not one who grovel and plead and beg, but......

    Please, please, please come back to BYU!!!!!!!

    We need a shooter, you'll have the green light, you're already familiar with the coach (who plays his players based on merit and not on legacy); and like Dylan Collie, you'll be loved for coming back to Provo!!!

    Pleeeeeeaaaaaassssseeeee!!!!!

    Nah...nothing more pointless than a lateral move from one program that doesn't matter to another program that doesn't matter. Besides, nobody's going to take advice from someone who condones the appalling behavior of parents (and others) at little league games.

    Jake, get out of Happy Valley and find your fortune somewhere that matters!

    I think the sources must be teasing a bit to create some dramatic tension. Toolson would be foolish to choose any other situation than BYU where he would be given Jimmer like adulation. He shoots (career) 3 % better than Jimmer from the 3 and is a five-point leader over the Fredette Phenom in effective field goal percentage. His coach is his former coach who has faith in him. This player has been given the chance of a lifetime to come in--shoot many many many many shots, be his teams (and maybe his conferences) scoring leader and increase his resume for the pro ranks. Which of these other programs will even give him a chance at a sniff of what he requires (free rein and shot volume) to make that happen? Virginia? You gonna step in and tell Coach Bennett how many shots you'll require? Duke? Coach K is going to concern himself with your pro future? You get yourself over to the Y, Mr. Toolson. Pick out a number and get your picture taken for next years program. Fame and fortune awaits you, but it will come in the crucible of the WCC--where legends are forged in bandboxes and the hydra--(Zags) weeds out all but the most worthy.
