Cougars add former Utah Mr. Basketball

The Cougars bolstered their backcourt for the 2019-20 basketball season with the addition of Gonzaga transfer, Jesse Wade.

Wade won’t see action on the floor this season, due to transfer rules, but will have three years of eligibility at BYU  after sitting out the year.

Even though he didn’t provide eye-popping numbers during his freshman campaign with the Bulldogs, Wade is a huge get for the Cougars. The former Davis High School product was a three-time All-State selection during his time with the Darts, including a senior year where he averaged 26.8 points a night to take home the illustrious Mr. Basketball award handed out by the Deseret News.
