BYU Basketball: Kyle Davis to transfer to Cougars

Kyle Davis is transfering to BYU - Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

Former USU forward announced that he will play for the Cougars.

On a day where BYU football received disappointing news, the basketball team gained a transfer from Utah State University.  6-7, 225 pound forward, Kyle Davis announced he was leaving the Aggies program in late March but it wasn't confirmed he would attend BYU until today.  Greg Wrubell broke the news on twitter:

Davis is a sophomore from Draper, Utah and attended Alta High School.  He started his college career at Southern Utah before serving an LDS mission in Michigan.  He played in 29 games for the Aggies and started in 27 of them.  He averaged just over nine points per game and almost eight rebounds.  He also led the team in blocks with 1.3 a game.  Last year he played 29 minutes against the Cougars and went 7-11 with nine rebounds, three assists, one block, a steal, and 16 points.

He is a player that is long and can alter shots at the rim.  He is very physical and can take a charge when needed. Since he was not granted a release from USU to attend BYU, he will not be a scholarship player in 2014-15 and will sit out the year as required by NCAA transfer rules.  In 2015-16 he will suit up on scholarship and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
