BYU shooting guard and former Bountiful High star Zac Seljaas will play for the Cougars in the 2017-18 season, the school announced Wednesday.

Seljaas was serving an LDS mission in Iowa and was not expected to return until after the 2017-18 season, but he returned home March 20 to rehab an injured right shoulder. He will re-enroll at the school in June and be a sophomore for the coming season.

The 6-foot-7 swing man averaged 7.6 points and 2.9 rebounds as a freshman in the 2015-16 season, setting a single-season school record for freshman 3-point proficiency by shooting 50 percent from deep.

As a Bountiful senior in the 2014-15 season, Seljaas averaged 25.4 points per game while shooting 48.2 percent from the field and 41.6 percent from the 3-point line, leading the Braves to the 4-A state championship.

He was the Standard-Examiner All-Area MVP for boys basketball that season. In his final 14 high school games, he made 56 3-pointers, shooting 49.6 percent from behind the arc and 51.2 percent overall.

Seljaas stands to help a BYU team that struggled from 3-point range. The Cougars shot just 32.5 percent from deep in the 2016-17 season.
