PROVO, Utah (AP) Purdue graduate transfer Matt Haarms has chosen Brigham Young over Kentucky and Texas Tech.
Haarms posted an image of himself in a BYU uniform on Instagram with "Committed" written at the bottom. He will be eligible to play basketball immediately.
"No words can express how excited we are to welcome Matt to our BYU family," coach Mark Pope said Thursday in a statement. "Clearly with his size, athletic ability, versatility and skill set he has the potential to emerge as one of the premier bigs in college basketball. His passion for the game and intensity on the court are inspiring. There's a reason he was one of the most sought-after transfers this offseason."
