Jake Toolson Enters Transfer Portal

OREM, Utah – Utah Valley Wolverines guard Jake Toolson has decided to enter his name in the transfer portal and will become a graduate transfer.

Because Toolson will graduate in the spring, he will be immediately eligible to play wherever he chooses to play basketball.

The news came one day after UVU head coach Mark Pope decided to leave the university and become the head basketball coach at BYU.

Other reports have surfaced that Toolson is waiting to see who the next head coach at Utah Valley will be before making his decision.

Toolson – a redshirt junior from Gilbert, Arizona had a terrific season, averaging 15.7 points per game, earning WAC Player of the Year honors.

The likely destination for Toolson would be to follow Pope to BYU. It would be the second time that Toolson has played for the Cougars. He began his college career in Provo, Utah, where he played for two seasons and averaged 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in 9.4 minutes per game.

That led him to transfer to Utah Valley.

The Wolverines finished the 2018-19 season with a 25-10 record before being eliminated in the second round of the CBI.

Pope was an assistant coach for Dave Rose at BYU for four years before taking the UVU job for four seasons. Once Rose retired after 14 years as the head coach for BYU, Pope replaced him.
