Former Arizona Wildcats guard Alex Barcello is transferring to BYU, according to Jacob Hatch of the Locked on Cougars podcast.

Barcello will have to sit out the 2019-20 season before having two years of eligibility in Provo.

The Tempe native was a top-100 recruit coming out of Corona del Sol High School, where he won two state championships and was a two-time Gatorade Player of the Year, but he was unable to carve out a consistent role with the Wildcats with whom he averaged just 9.6 minutes and 2.9 points in 51 games.

UA coach Sean Miller often raved about Barcello’s jumper, but the 6-foot-2 guard shot just 29.7 percent from 3 as a Wildcat.
