Jimmer Leaves China, BYU Spring Football Defense

The BYU Football team has a lot of question marks when it comes to the wide receivers that Tanner Mangum will be throwing to, but Dave Noriega and Alex Kirry have no questions about how good the Linebackers are for BYU.  Francis Bernard, Fred Warner and Butch Pau’u?  Take your pick on who is better but defensive coordinator for the Cougars Illaisa Tuiaki talked this week with the media about these guys and Kalani Sitake’s role now with the Linebackers and how E will handle his defensive line.  Former Cougars Daniel Sorensen, Kansas City Chief and former Cougar, undrafted 3 years ago, now finds himself with a new money contract with KC and proves that the hard work has finally paid off, in the millions.  Speaking of former Cougars making millions, Jimmer Fredette had a crazy successful year in China and has said that he would love to come back to the Sharks after his 38 points per game performance this season, but is the NBA still in his future?
