Braiden Shaw

Shaw might end up being the odd man out in the frontcourt rotation of BYU basketball.

He averaged just three minutes a game last season, and only checked into 19 contests. His height (6-foot-9) is nice, but he needs to bulk up to really be effectively down low.

However, he was named the No. 1 recruit in Idaho as a senior in 2013.

Still, with many talented bigs fighting for minutes at the No. 4 and No. 5 spots, it’s tough to imagine that Shaw cracks that rotation with any consistency.
