As reported by The Salt Lake Tribune last Saturday, BYU's basketball program has received another commitment from a high school junior.
Braiden Shaw, a 6-foot-8 forward from Eagle High, located in a suburb north of Boise, Idaho, committed to BYU on Saturday after making an unofficial visit to the school.
Shaw received an offer from BYU coach Dave Rose and committed on the spot.
He will sign with the Cougars in November of 2012, play his senior season of basketball at Eagle, graduate in 2013, and then immediately go on an LDS Church mission. He's in the same class as Lone Peak High's Nick Emery, who committed to the Cougars last month.
In recent months, the Cougars have also received commitments from Jordan Chatman of Washington, Cory Calvert of Colorado and T.J. Haws, Emery's teammate at Lone Peak, a sophomore.
Shaw got on BYU's radar by earning MVP honors at a BYU camp last June.
