BYU’s Coup

For BYU, this commitment represents a significant milestone. The last time a Cougar player was selected in the NBA Draft was back in 2011 when Jimmer Fredette went 10th overall. Now, with Demin on board, Coach Kevin Young aims to turn BYU into a pipeline for NBA talent. The program’s reputation is growing, and Demin’s decision to choose BYU over other suitors like Arkansas speaks volumes about the Cougars’ rising prominence.

What makes Demin’s commitment even more intriguing is that he isn’t a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). Despite this, he recognizes the opportunity BYU provides to showcase his skills on a big stage.
