UNLV transfer Jamal Aytes is heading to BYU
BYU lost out to UNLV for Jamal Aytes back in August. On Friday, the Cougars got a second chance.
Four months later, he’s going the opposite way.
Aytes, who announced earlier this week that he was leaving UNLV, will join BYU next semester.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of BYU basketball,” Aytes said in a statement. “I feel very comfortable with the coaching staff and I think I’ll fit in really well. This is where I want to finish my college career.”
Aytes, a 6-foot-6 power forward, played in four games this season for the Runnin’ Rebels. He averaged 2.8 points in 9.3 minutes. However, he was very impressive over the spring and summer with the Dream Vision AAU program.
He could make an impact at BYU when eligible.
“Jamal will be a great addition to our program,” BYU head coach Dave Rose said. “We’re excited to have him on our team. He’s an excellent low-post scorer and will have a positive impact on our front line.”
