Brigham Young guard Nick Emery withdrew from school on Nov. 10, as first reported by Greg Wrubell.

Emery told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman that he was “mentally not where [he] needed to be in order to perform” this season. Although the junior guard withdrew from BYU for this season, Emery said he would return to campus in due time.

Emery made headlines as of late when the Salt Lake Tribune’s Nate Carlisle and Aaron Falk reported the guard was under NCAA investigation for allegedly receiving improper benefits from a booster on Oct. 27.

The junior from Lone Peak High School (UT) was expected to be a starter for the Cougars this season. The onetime All-WCC second team selection averaged 13.1 ppg on 30.1 FG% last season, per his sports-reference.com page.
