Four-star wing Kanon Catchings has committed to BYU. Catchings, ranked No. 38 in the 2024 class and a former Purdue signee, has decided to join BYU, according to a source from 247Sports.

The 6-foot-8, 185-pound small forward from Atlanta’s Overtime Elite, previously committed to Purdue, was released from his National Letter of Intent on June 6th. Catchings, who was once ranked as high as No. 14 overall in his class last June, committed to BYU following an official visit this week and is ready to don a Cougar jersey.

Originally from Brownsburg, Indiana, Catchings is known for his impressive talent, great size, long arms, and remarkable athleticism.

Four-star wing Kanon Catchings has committed to BYU

Catchings is a naturally gifted recruit, fitting the mold of a three-and-D wing capable of attacking closeouts and defending multiple positions. To maximize his potential, he will need to work on his jumper for consistency and spend time in the BYU weight room to develop his frame. The partnership with BYU’s head coach Kevin Young, who brings NBA experience, is seen as a perfect fit for this promising prospect.

Since becoming the head coach in Provo, Utah, Young has proven his recruiting prowess, with Catchings being the highlight of what is now BYU’s best recruiting class in history.

Catchings joins international star Egor Demin, a projected first-round pick in the 2025 NBA Draft, along with Brody Kozlowski (No. 117), Brooks Bahr (No. 114), Elijah Crawford (No. 143), and Rutgers transfer Mawot Mag.
