Back in June we introduced you to Ryan Andrus a talented Center from American Fork who received an official offer from the BYU Basketball coaching staff. On Wednesday, Andrus made up his mind and decided to commit to Coach Rose and BYU. Andrus made his commitment known publicly on Twitter. Needless to say, it sounds like he is excited to be a Cougar. Here’s Andrus’ tweet:

This commitment from Andrus comes on the heels of BYU losing out on Top 100 recruit, Brekkott Chapman from Roy HS. Chapman committed to rival Utah earlier this week.
Andrus is the fourth commitment of the 2014 class. According to 24/7 Sports, BYU has the 10th best class in the country for 2014. That follows a 2013 class that finished in the Top 15 from numerous recruiting services and is still looking to add another talented prospect in Jamal Aytes. We will have more on him in the coming days.
One of the few knocks on the BYU Basketball program has been the lack of depth in the front court. Andrus will look to change that in future years. The 6’10, 200 pound Andrus will play one season then go on a mission after his Freshman season.
Along with BYU, Andrus received offers from Utah, Utah State, and Boise State.
