PROVO, Utah – BYU men’s basketball coach Dave Rose announced today that prep guards Cory Calvert and Jordan Chatman have signed National Letters of Intent to play for the Cougars. Rose also announced Tyler Haws will return to BYU in April after the completion of his two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints to the Philippines.

“We're very excited about the addition of these two young men to our program,” Rose said. “Cory and Jordan are not only great players, but great students and will be excellent representatives for the university. We're also looking forward to the return of Tyler Haws and for him to continue the success he established as a freshman.”

Haws, who played as a freshman for the Cougars in 2009-10, will be a sophomore for the 2012-13 season. Calvert and Chatman plan to serve missions prior to enrolling at BYU and will play their first season for the Cougars in 2014-15.

Calvert, a 6-foot-3 combo guard, demonstrated his versatility as a junior at Chaparral High School in Parker, Colo., last season. Averaging 15.8 points, 4.8 boards and 3.9 assists, Calvert led Chaparral to a 15-11 record, including 8-3 in league play. He posted season highs of 30 points, nine boards, nine assists and four steals. ESPNHS named Chatman to its preseason All-State Third Team.

Chatman, the son of BYU great Jeff Chatman, is a 6-foot-4 guard from Union High School in Vancouver, Wash. Last season he averaged 20 points per game while helping Union to the regional playoffs. He earned All-Greater St. Helens League honors and enters this season as the No. 2 senior in the state of Washington. ESPNHS named Calvert to its preseason All-State Second Team.

Haws was a two-time Deseret News Mr. Basketball at Lone Peak before helping BYU to a 30-6 record and a trip to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2009-10. As a freshman, Haws earned All-MWC Third Team honors while averaging 11.3 points and 4.2 boards while shooting a BYU record .917 (fifth all-time in NCAA history) from the free throw line. Haws also set a BYU record with 48-consecutive free throw attempts without a miss, a record he will try to add to when he returns to BYU.
