Matt Haarms has ‘never been happier’ as he adjusts to BYU after spending 3 years at Purdue

He’s traveled from his native Netherlands to Purdue and now he’s in Provo. After spending the past few months with the BYU basketball program, Matt Haarms is settling in with the Cougars.

The 7-foot-3 grad transfer is thrilled to be part of coach Mark Pope’s team.

“I’ve never been happier with my decision. Every single day I feel better about it,” Haarms said. “Since I stepped on campus, there hasn’t been a single moment, a single day, of doubt. Every day, I learn to trust the coaches more. I’m learning every single day.
