BYU landed the 4th piece of its 2017 recruiting class in guard Trevin Knell. Knell committed to the Cougars late Monday night via his twitter account after taking an official visit to Provo.
As stated in his tweet, Knell will enroll in BYU after serving his LDS mission in Uruguay. He reports to the MTC July 4.
An ESPN 3-star prospect, the 6’5” Knell is one of the best 3-point shooters in the west. The Woods Cross product averaged 25.3 points on 52.6/48.3/86.2 shooting splits this past season. With his 6’5” frame, Knell also has the potential to be a capable defender on the other end of the floor.
Knell had originally signed with Cal in November, but obtained a release from his National Letter of Intent after former Cal Head Coach Cuonzo Martin left for Missouri. He quickly scheduled a visit to BYU after obtaining his release.
Knell joins Kolby Lee, Rylan Bergersen and Jahshire Hardnett as signees for the 2017 class; Knell and Lee will serve LDS missions before enrolling.
With Knell not taking a scholarship for the 2017-2018 season, BYU still has one open scholarship to fill for the upcoming season. Assistant Coach Heath Schryoer brings with him a wealth of connections along the recruiting trail, and BYU could very well bring in an international wing to fill the last spot for the upcoming season. We’ll have more information on Vanquish the Foe as details become more public.
