BYU Basketball offers a scholarship to 4-star junior Kwame ‘K.J.’ Hymes (Class of 2018)

K.J. Hymes is a 6-foot-10 200 pound power forward from Phoenix who was reportedly offered a scholarship to play for the BYU basketball team yesterday (Class of 2018).

hymes_kj_150pxHymes preps at St. Mary’s High School (AZ), where he averaged 5.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game as a freshman.  He is rated 4-stars by Rivals and ESPN (grade of 87), and 3-stars by Scout. ESPN has him as the No. 2 prospect from Arizona and the No. 15 power forward nationally.  He is No. 55 in their Top 80 ranking and the No. 63 prospect nationally on Rivals.  Hymes holds scholarship offers from Arizona State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Grand Canyon, Memphis, Nevada, Oklahoma, St. John’s, USC, and Washington. He also now has a BYU offer, so it’s probably “safe” to assume that he’ll have a Utah offer in the next day or two. J  He is also being recruited by Arizona, Cal, and UCLA.
