BYU basketball player
I was also surprised to learn that he played both football and basketball at Timpview High School before his mission in New Zealand, and played both really well. He just doesn't look like a basketball player to me, but I'm glad he is. He's intimidating, he's got a solid base that's perfect for defense, and did I mention he's HUGE? :) Tyler Haws said, "He doesn't move on box-outs. You go to box him out, and it's like his feet are locked on the floor. He provides a big presence inside and gives Brandon a good guy to go against every day in practice."
I think, with a little more practice, Bronson Kaufusi could be a decent backup for Brandon Davies and Nate Austin, especially against teams with bigger guys who they are having a hard time defending. I'm not sure how many minutes he'll actually get, but I think he has a lot of potential and gives the BYU basketball team something they have been missing, at least to some extent -- SIZE. I know I wouldn't want to run into an angry Kaufusi in a dark alley . . . or on the basketball court.
