An Early Look at the 2020 BYU Basketball Roster
Head Coach Mark Pope has the BYU Basketball program trending in the right direction. BYU lost seven Seniors to graduation last year, but BYU is hoping to continue the momentum of the program despite the losses of multiple key players. Let's take an early look at the 2020 BYU Basketball roster.
Returning Players (Name, Position, Eligibility)
- Alex Barcello - Guard - SR
- Gavin Baxter - Forward - JR
- Connor Harding - Guard - JR
- Richard Harward - Center - JR
- Trevin Knell - Guard - SO
- Kolby Lee - Forward - JR
- Wyatt Lowell - Forward - SO
- Cameron Pearson - Guard - SO
- Jesse Wade - Guard - JR (Could be SO barring medical redshirt)
BYU has a solid core of players returning next season. Barcello, Harding, and Baxter will take on much bigger roles in 2020. BYU needs a consistent scorer to emerge from this group.
2020 Recruiting Class (Name, Position, Eligibility)
- Gideon George - Forward - JR
- Spencer Johnson - Guard - SO
Gideon George is one of the most intriguing players on the roster. George, a native of Nigeria, is listed at 6'6 with prototypical NBA length. George is a JUCO transfer with two years of eligibility remaining.
2020 Transfers (Name, Position, Eligibility)
- Matt Haarms - Center - SR
Matt Haarms will be a huge addition to the 2020 roster. BYU is still very active in the transfer portal. I expect them to add at least one more transfer before everything is said and done.
2020 Returned Missionaries (Name, Position, Eligibility)
- Hunter Erickson - Guard - FR
Erickson is an athletic guard out of Timpview High School. It's never easy to return from a mission an compete for playing time right away, but Erickson will have the opportunity to do just that if he's able to return to basketball form.
