BYU’s Jimmer Fredette Takes to YouTube to Chronicle Journey to NBA

Former BYU star Jimmer Fredette impressed many with his long-range shots and sick crossover while in college. He'll soon be adjusting to life in the NBA, as the 6-foot-2 point guard is expected to be drafted in the middle of the first round of this year's NBA draft. The NCAA Division I leading scorer is now taking to the internet to chronicle his journey toward the draft and the NBA.

Fredette recently created a YouTube account "Follow Jimmer" to show his fans how the 22-year old is reacting to the pressure that accompanies being drafted into the NBA. The promo for the web series (which appears to be produced in one-minute segments) teases to footage of Fredette simply training and spending time with family and friends.

"It's been a lot of fun to be able to go through the journey," Fredette said in his first video, "I think the biggest thing is you got to enjoy the journey because once you get there, it's a different story … your playing and [there's] a business aspect of the game. But enjoy the journey, enjoy the relationships, and that's what I'm trying to do and have a good time."

Check out Fredette's first video, "Jimmer 001," below.
