BYU basketball adds transfer LJ Rose

274

The BYU basketball program picked up transfer LJ Rose from Houston on June 15. Rose is eligible to play immediately for the Cougars.

BYU guard Jordan Chatman announced he was transferring last week, so Rose will immediately add some much-needed depth for head coach Dave Rose.

Rose is listed at 6-foot-3 and 200 lbs. Injuries have held him back throughout most of his playing career, but he was a 40-percent shooter when healthy.

Rose played nearly 35 minutes per game and averaged 9.8 points per game as a junior for Houston.

Rose played in two games last season as he nursed a nagging foot injury. He will join a BYU backcourt that includes Nick Emery, Elijah Bryant, TJ Haws and Steven Beo.
