Fredette going down to the wire

BYU coach Dave Rose told Andy Katz in a text message tonight that he planned to meet with Jimmer Fredette on Saturday before he made a final decision on whether to stay in the draft or return to school.

Fredette worked out for his hometown New York Knicks today and injured a quad muscle, according to WXXA-TV, causing his father to give this quote:

"There's a strong indication he'll return," Mr. Fredette said.

But for a player who appeared all but certain going into the process he was returning to school, this has turned into somewhat of a nail-biter. Reports that his workouts had gone better than expected have been circulating.

Without Fredette, who would enter the season the conference player of the year favorite now that Darington Hobson is staying in the draft, the Cougars are a completely different team.

With him, BYU has visions of bettering their second-round NCAA tournament appearance this past year.

What's it going to be?
