Timpview high school junior Nate Hansen made a verbal commitment to BYU basketball yesterday.

Hansen is a 6-foot-3 165 pound guard that averaged 15.1 points as a junior.  He was named 3rd team All-State and won the BYU basketball camp MVP for a second straight year.

Hansen is the first commit for the Cougars Class of 2019.  He has scholarship offers from UC-Davis, Portlant, and UC-Irvine with interest from Hawaii, Utah State, and UVU.  Hansen plans on serving an LDS mission and returning to play for the 2021-22 season.

BYU Insider:Why did you choose BYU?
Hansen: I love Provo and the people that support BYU.  Also, I grew up as a Cougar fan. I live three minutes away from campus and wanted to stay close to home.  I really like Coach Rose and have seen what he’s been able to do in his career as a coach.  That made me want to come and continue the winning culture.

BYU Insider:What are you most excited for?
Hansen: My first game.  Just being able to warm up in the Marriott Center is going to be an unreal feeling.

BYU Insider: What are some of your favorites?
Hansen: Reese’s Puffs and all kinds of music

BYU Insider: Best advice you’ve been given? 
Hansen: During my sophomore year my high school coach shared the following quote with me: “fear and apprehension are the enemies of greatness.” He may have gotten that somewhere but that’s always stuck with me.

BYU Insider: Player(s) you seek to emulate on the court?
Hansen: Ricky Rubio or an oldy Steve Nash.  Both are amazing point guards who play the game right!
