BYU lands JuCo hoops star

Steven Rogers, a Junior College All-American basketball player from Mesa Community College, committed to BYU Hoops and coach Dave Rose today.

Rogers is a 6'8" wing who is reportedly one heck of a shooter. From all indications, he'll fit in well with the Cougars. He's got good length for a wing, so he'll probably create a lot of mismatches, he'll be good on the boards, and he'll be one more scoring threat in addition to Jimmer Fredette, Jackson Emery, Brandon Davies and the other Cougar superstars.

Rogers was a nice get for the Cougs. He chose BYU over Utah State in a recruiting battle that went right down to the wire. I'm happy for our newest Cougar, but at this moment I'm also in awe of Coach Dave Rose.

Rose has dazzled me with his recruiting acumen. When Rose wants somebody, he gets him. He's batting near a thousand when it comes to landing big-name recruits.

Welcome aboard, Steve! May your years at BYU be plenteous and bountiful.
