BYU went to the Pacific Northwest to land 2020/2022 shooting Tanner Toolson. Toolson announced his commitment to BYU on Instagram Live Thursday with Scorebook Live Washington. The Vancouver, Washington product is the son of former BYU guard/assistant coach Andy Toolson. He had BYU in his final four along with Utah, Utah State, and Boise State. Toolson also had offers from Portland and UVU.
Toolson will serve a LDS mission before enrolling at BYU after his mission in 2022. A source confirmed with Vanquish the Foe that Toolson will be a scholarship player after his mission.
Toolson was named Mr. Basketball for the state of Washington by the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association after a breakout senior season. The 6-foot-5 guard led Union HS to a 27-1 record and averaged 23 points, 8.5 rebounds and three assists. Toolson started his high school career as a 5-foot-6 freshman, was on the JV team as a sophomore, became an All-Region player as junior, and then really came onto the recruiting scene during his senior year.
Toolson was primarily a slashing guard before developing a reliable three-point shot as a senior. He has some similarities to current BYU guard Connor Harding as big guards that did much of their damage off the dribble in high school.
