BYU lands Lone Peak junior

The Salt Lake Tribune confirmed on Friday that 6-foot-8 junior power forward Eric Mika (Highland, Utah/Lone Peak) has verbally committed to BYU. Mika first announced the news via his Twitter account.

"Well...it's official...BYU basketball offered a scholarship and i committed! Gonna be a Coug with my boys [Nick Emery and T.J. Haws]", he wrote.

Mika also held offers from Weber State and Utah State. He will sit out this season at Lone Peak due to Utah High School Activities Association transfer rules after playing at Waterford last year.

Emery and Braiden Shaw (Eagle, Idaho/Eagle) are 2013 recruits for the Cougars. Haws is a 2014 commitment.
