Our foul situation dictates to me that if you can replace Zylstras scholarship with a 4,5 that you do it. We need an enforcer.
Noah will be a senior
Brandon a junior
Chris a RS(medical) Soph
Anderson a senior
Harward and Austin could be both afforded redshirts, IF we find one more banger for the next 2 seasons.
It makes too much sense to me... fire out scholarships while BYU is a hot commodity because we really don't know what our stock value is once we lose Jimmer/Jax and go to the WCC. The timing is too good not to consider finding a solid rebounder, defender to fill the gap in the paint.
Our guard situation is fine, Winder, Harrison, Carlino will be with us for a good long time and I have to believe that Coach Rose passed on Dantley Walker, because he knows that 2012 grad 6'4" PG Jordan Chatman is basically a done deal.
Our 4 of the long term future is Jordan Loveridge (he's a baby-sullinger) but we need a stop gap 4 for when we lose Noah, Anderson, and Davies and while we work on our 7 foot projects in Austin and Harward.
Zylstra is not a D1 player and that scholarship needs to go to a guy that keeps this program at the level BYU needs until our young guys are ready to fly; it also maintains recruiting momentum for Nick Emery and TJ Haws... and long shot Jabari Parker.
