BYU’s Jimmer Fredette is too cool for school. The basketball superstar has been told not to go to class by school officials because he is a “distraction to students.” Since Fredette’s return from the NCAA tournament, Fredette cannot go anywhere in Provo without being asked for autographs or pictures… and that includes the classroom. BYU has instead asked Fredette to take online classes.
According to Jimmer’s father Al Fredette, “It was getting too disruptive. He can’t go anywhere in Provo without being recognized.”
While Fredette has no officially declared for the NBA draft, he is expected to go early in the first round.
