BYU Basketball Recruiting: Raul Delgado commits

The Cougars received a junior-college basketball commitment today from Raul Delgado from Western Nebraska Community College. The 6-2 guard will have a redshirt and two years of eligibility to play at BYU and committed to the Cougars after taking in the Saint Mary's game.

Delgado, a native of Chihuahua, Mexico, played his high school ball in Springville, Utah. He is currently averaging 19.7 points per game as a sophomore and shooting 43% from behind the arc. Delgado had offers from TCU, Wyoming, Utah State, and was reportedly drawing interest from Virginia and Texas Tech.

It appears -- though this is the most confusing page of stats ever assembled -- that Delgado scored 45 points on 12-23 three-point shooting in a win over Little Big Horn College on November 12 earlier this season, coming the night after scoring 35 points on November 11.

WNCC's coach Russell Beck told Brandon Gurney of the Deseret News that Delgado could play the point guard but the Cougars have had him playing shooting guard, and that he is a good defender with a good deal of athleticism.

Delgado's signing will take up the final scholarship available for BYU this offseason. Jordan Chatman and Cory Calvert will both be going on missions, so Delgado and the return of Tyler Haws will take up the scholarships left by Noah Hartsock and Charles Abouo.

UPDATE: Gurney has an updated post with quotes from Delgado explaining his decision
