Remember last July when Sissoko messed up his hand in an ATV accident on a recruiting trip at BYU? David Evans (the Wasatch Academy coach) was furious. Absolutely furious at Mark Pope and BYU for allowing that to happen. You have to wonder how much that incident played a role in Lohner not picking BYU the first time around. If Evans (his HS coach) was upset at BYU. And, if he was getting other outside pressure, I'd imagine that was a factor. Now, I understand that Richie Saunders later signed with BYU last Fall. But, I just can't help but think that it was within a month of that incident that Lohner signed with Utah. I'm not saying that incident was the reason he signed with Utah, I'm just saying that I think it was a factor with his HS coach not being high on BYU at the time.
Anyway, Evans has now retired from coaching at Wasatch Academy. And, Lohner is at BYU. Crazy world. Go Cougs.
