Jimmer Fredette Is Too Popular to Attend Classes

Jimmer Fredette and his third-seeded BYU Cougars only reached the Round of 16 during last month’s NCAA tournament, a somewhat disappointing result. However, that hasn’t made college basketball’s Player of the Year any less popular on campus.

In fact, the BYU administration recently asked the senior to stop attending classes, because his mere presence was affecting the learning environment at the Provo, UT, college. Fredette will complete the reminder of his courses online.

“It was getting too disruptive.” Al Fredette, Jimmer’s father, told the Glens Falls Post Star, Fredette’s hometown newspaper.

“[Jimmer] can’t go anywhere in Provo without being recognized and deluged with requests for autographs,” he added.

Talk about being the big man on campus.
