Good story about LDS kid that I think BYU considered offer, now playing @ ISU
"Stutzman transferred to Idaho State from Utah Valley University for personal reasons. His wife, Christina, has cystic fibrosis and needed to be closer to her hometown, Idaho Falls, for treatment. Per NCAA transfer rules, Stutzman would have to sit out one season at ISU before suiting up for the Bengals. But due to his circumstances, Stutzman filed a hardship waiver with hopes of playing right away."
Jared and Christina were high-school sweethearts. They got married last fall, when Jared was a freshman on Utah Valley’s upstart basketball team. Jared was committed to play for the University of San Francisco out of high school, but reopened his recruitment and decided on Utah Valley after USF had a coaching change during Jared’s two-year LDS mission. He and Christina moved to Orem, Utah, last year, but Christina wasn’t getting the medical care she needed.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that causes mucus to block airways and lung infections. There is no known cure, and people with the condition are expected to live about 40 years. Jared says his wife takes a handful of pills each morning and inhales other antibiotics throughout the day. Christina and each of her three sisters have the disease. One of them died around eight years ago, Jared estimates.
Christina and her sister Ali achieved national fame when they reached the top 10 on America’s Got Talent in 2010. The singing duo won hearts with talent and a feel-good story, and Christina continues to use both as a singing coach and traveling performer/motivational speaker."
