The NBA is just a stone’s throw away! The Russian talent left Real Madrid to play in the United States

Egor Demin officially confirmed that he will play in the American student league NCAA.

Europe is a breeding ground for basketball talent. Real Madrid has raised another young magician of the orange ball. It is true that this time he is not from Slovenia, but from Russia! Rumors that Yegor Demin will play in the American student league NCAA starting next season have been circulating for a long time, but now this has become officially known. Let’s take a closer look at where the Russian point guard’s career will continue.

Although Yegor did not spend much time playing for the main team, almost everyone noticed his talent and abilities. In the NCAA, Demin will compete for Brigham Young University (BYU), a private research university in Provo, Utah. It was founded in 1875 by religious leader Brigham Young. The Cougars play in a pretty strong Big 12 conference.

Throughout the university’s long history, the basketball team never managed to win the NCAA championship, but it is worth considering that BYU has a tradition of developing young talents, and many simply go to institutions with a higher status . However, in the history of the university there were very famous players who later not only reached the NBA, but also played important roles in teams there. For example, Danny Ainge is a basketball player for the legendary Celtics of the 1980s and later general manager of the Boston and Utah Jazz. Jimmer Fredette and Sean Bradley had good careers.

All in all, BYU lacks stars in the sky, but it also frequently participates in March Madness, and in 2024 the team reached the most coveted college tournament on the planet. It’s a shame, of course, that I was eliminated in the first round. There are actually a lot of good things! The city of Provo, where the educational institution is located, is not a metropolis (the population in 2020 is 115,162 people). I think this place has entertainment, but it’s still not Los Angeles, New York or Miami where you can spend a lot of time.

Therefore, Russian talent should focus on basketball. Additionally, the Cougars are led by Kevin Young, who spent the last eight years as an assistant with the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns, and nine years before that as a coach in the D-League (now G League). Demin said a touching farewell to Real Madrid: I write this letter to express my deepest gratitude for the three unforgettable years I spent in his prestigious program. The journey I began with Real Madrid has been transformative and I am deeply grateful for the experiences, lessons and memories that will stay with me forever.” He then shared a photo of himself wearing a BYU jersey and wrote: “Let’s rock, Brigham Young. Go cougars.

Many authoritative basketball publications list Demin among the top 15 players in the 2025 NBA draft, and ESPN even among the top 10 (ninth place). The boy won two youth Euroleagues with Real Madrid and fully justifies the insinuations that have been made towards him. The 18-year-old point guard will likely be BYU’s brightest prospect next season. All that remains is to take the last step towards the NBA!
