Chandler Basha senior Klay Stall, who will miss his senior basketball season with a torn anterior-cruciate knee ligament, is at peace, knowing his college future has been secured.
The 6-foot-10 forward/center committed to Utah State on Friday, a day after receiving a scholarship offer from the Division I school.
Stall said that Utah State spent most of July staying in contact with him and recruiting him hard.
He said he will go on his official recruiting trip to Logan, Utah, on Sept. 11-13.
s”It was a great fit for me and the family, and the coaching staff is amazing,” Stall said. “We can make a run in the Mountain West (Conference) and NCAA Tournament.”
Stall showed big improvements in his overall game from his sophomore to junior season. Last season, he averaged 11.8 points and 11.3 rebounds on a 19-10 team.
