BYU basketball: Jake Toolson to return to BYU as graduate transfer from Utah Valley

The WAC Player of the Year is returning to BYU.

NCAA Basketball: Utah Valley at Duke Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Jake Toolson will end his college career where it began: at BYU.

The senior Utah Valley sharpshooter has committed to follow Mark Pope to Provo as a graduate transfer, Jeff Goodman reported Tuesday night, despite earlier reporting that BYU was not on Toolson’s list of considerations. Goodman said Toolson was looking at Duke, Arizona State, Stanford and Utah State, among others.

Pope’s recruiting chops showing already?

Toolson was the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year this past season, averaging 15.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 35 games.

The 6-foot-5 guard shot 44.8% from the 3-point line last season on 4.4 attempts per game.

Toolson, a native of Gilbert, Arizona, played 26 games as a freshman at BYU in the 2014-15 season, but only appeared in 10 games as a sophomore the following season.

Toolson was also an Associated Press All-American honorable mention for the 2018-19 season.
