"Had she not been at BYU, I might have still gone there but it would have been a dead heat," Plaisted said. "It was tough anyways for me to go to Florida State or BYU. It was close."
Plaisted, a strong contender for Top 100 consideration, had narrowed his choices to FSU and BYU while Virginia was trying to get involved. He averaged 14 points a game last season but showed a fine skill package in the summer and his best ball is ahead of him.
"I think that from what it sounds like, they want me to play the three. Maybe redshirt my freshman year because I don't know how to play the three right now. If I go to college, I'm not going to be able to make that transition right away; nothing is guaranteed."
Plaisted is also really excited about BYU's chances to land an outstanding recruiting class. "It depends on if they get everyone in this class. If they get everybody I think they can be really good. Lee Cummard is a great player and David Burgess is a big timer too. I'm not saying if we don't get everybody we could be bad. This could be a big class."
Plaisted played with the San Antonio Wildcats on the AAU scene.
