"Jimmer Fredette is as good a player as I've ever seen in the college ranks," said Utah coach Jim Boylen. "He's not one-dimensional. He can score from anywhere on the court. Probably most impressive is, that for someone named 'Jimmer,' he doesn't seem to piss his pants and I hear he can ride a bike with the training wheels off."
BYU head coach Dave Rose says having the name of a 3 year-old boy with glasses and a severe peanut allergy has driven Fredette to succeed and prove to people that he can do more than sit on the sidelines with his asthma inhaler reading books about dinosaurs.
