Former BYU basketball players Steven Beo and Zach Frampton officially have new homes to play basketball.
Beo, a freshman from Richland, Washington, has committed to transfer to Eastern Washington, according to Verbal Commits.

Eastern Washington is about 2 hours from his hometown. Beo, a 6-foot-3 guard, originally committed to BYU as a walk-on but was put on scholarship prior to the 2016-17 season. Because of this, it seems likely he’ll have to sit out a year before lacing it up for the Eagles.

Beo played in 31 games in his only year at BYU, averaging 2.2 points and 0.9 assists on 38.5% shooting in 11.5 minutes per game.
Beo becomes the second BYU transfer to land in the Big Sky as big man Jamal Aytes previously committed to Southern Utah as a graduate transfer.
Frampton, another 6-foot-3 freshman, landed a scholarship at Dixie State, the school announced Wednesday.
As a walk-on, Frampton appeared in 13 games at 3.9 minutes per appearance last season. The Lone Peak High product totaled 5 points and 17 rebounds in his time at BYU.
Davin Guinn was also a departure from last season — he apparently was not looking to continue his basketball career.
BYU has yet to announce its 2017-18 schedule but is likely to play its first non-exhibition game Nov. 10 or Nov. 11.
