What Insiders Say
BYU coach Dave Rose
"This year's draft is probably set up pretty good for a guy like Brandon because the last 20 or 30 or 40 picks in this draft aren't set in stone,” Rose told the Deseret News. “There are probably 70 or 80 guys that could go in those spots."

What Outsiders Say
Weber State coach Randy Rahe
“We played him one-on-one to start the game because he’s so good when you double him because he’s such a good passer and then we got him going [Davies scored a career-high 33 points]. Credit goes to Brandon. He played terrific. I wish we would have [Kyle Tresnak] in there a little more, but part of that is Brandon got him in foul trouble.”
