Phillips Definitely A Cougar; Heaps, Van Noy Impressing Early

No one should fault BYU for losing at New Mexico, 76-72. The Pit is and will be one of the toughest places in the country to play, and I can tell you from years covering the Lobos that there is no opponent that gets the place as amped as the Cougars. BYU remains the MWC favorite even with the loss to the Lobos. But UNM desperately needed the win to stay in the race."

ESPN's Pat Forde: BYU Could Win It All

"Why the Cougars can win it: Impressively efficient offensive team that shoots extremely well from the field (55 percent from 2-point range, 41 percent from 3) and phenomenally from the foul line (77.4 percent, best in the nation). They take care of the ball, too, and play better-than-suspected defense. Guard Jimmer Fredette might be the most underrated player in the country. (You'll read more about him below.) They've already played 10 road or neutral-site games, winning nine of them..."

For now, we'll let you know that a couple of linemen won't be playing at BYU -- defensive lineman Bernard Afutiti and offensive lineman Jesse Taufi. Neither player was able to accomplish what they needed to academically in order to play for the Cougars, Mendenhall said.

BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall is excited about Heaps joining the program. "He's a great young man, a great leader, and will be a very good player for us here," he said. "I never put much stock into the recruiting services, but in terms of our standards, we think he's very, very good. And I think he'll have a great career here." What impressed Mendenhall most about Heaps? "It was just his presence. He was mature beyond his years and a natural leader," he said. "When you look at the recruiting class that we're going to end up signing this year, a lot of it is because of him going to work to surround himself with the best players and best kids possible." Of Apo, Mendenhall said, "He ended up changing a commitment from Texas to BYU and he came for the right reasons — that's all the core values and principles that we embrace here and to catch a lot of passes from Jake Heaps or whomever the quarterback is. They're going to be a lot of fun to be with." Mendenhall said there are plenty of advantages for Heaps and Apo to enroll in January. "I'm certainly glad they have the mindset and want to be here and get extra training to be ready in the fall. I think that will help them."
