BYU men’s basketball head coach Dave Rose announced that 6-foot-7-inch guard Zac Seljaas will be back to play for the Cougars in the 2017-18.

Seljaas left for his LDS mission to Iowa last summer, but returned earlier this month. He is currently rehabbing his right shoulder.

Seljaas plans on enrolling at BYU in June and will begin working out with the team. He completed his freshman year during the 2015-16 season, and will be listed as a sophomore for the 2017-18 season.

As a freshman, Seljaas averaged 7.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assts. He shot 49.4 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from 3-point range, a single season record for a BYU freshman. He scored 68 3-pointers in his 2015-16 season, the third most by a Cougar freshman behind teammates Nick Emery and TJ Haws.

Seljaas will be a welcome addition to the roster, as the Cougars shot 34 percent from 3-point range. Their two leading 3-point shooters were TJ Haws (40 percent) and Nick Emery (37 percent).
