Why did you choose to come to BYU?

I love the school and the tradition it has. The basketball program is great, so it was kind of an easy choice.

If you could do one thing extremely well, besides basketball, what would that be?

Probably golf, which I’m really bad at.

When did you start playing basketball?

At three or four years old I started shooting hoops, so I’ve pretty much always played. My dad loves basketball so he kind of got me into it.

If you could play any position in any other sport, what would you play?

Quarterback.

Who’s been the most influential person in your life?

My parents have been awesome. They’ve been great examples of how to live your life.

Who’s the funniest person on the team?

I actually think Agui (Agustin Ambrosino) is pretty funny. He’s got kind of a dry sense of humor but I think he’s pretty funny. Plus his accent is fun.

What’s something unique about you that most people don’t know?

My dad’s name is Cory also, so I’m a Jr.

What’s your favorite meal?

Steak and mashed potatoes.

Who’s your favorite athlete?

Probably Ty Lawson because he plays on my favorite team, the Nuggets, and he’s a lot of fun to watch.
