Bryce Webster, the almost Aggie

Cal State-Fullerton has a big man in the middle.

He’s 6-foot-10, 240 pounds and has a soft shooting touch.

And had things been just a little different, he might have been starting at center for Utah State this season.

Bryce Webster, a former Minnesota high school star, signed a letter of intent to play for Utah State two years ago. He made an official visit to the school, liked what he saw, put his name on paper and then … never came to school.

Instead, he sat out a year and now plays for the Titans.

Webster played one season at the University of Minnesota for left after the Gophers fired his coach and hired Tubby Smith. He took his game to Irvine Valley College in California where he had a solid, if not spectacular sophomore season.

He was expected to join the Aggies last year and play with Gary Wilkinson, Tai Wesley, Modou Niang and some guy named Braden Bell.

But he had a change of heart and, perhaps, grew to like the weather in Southern California. After not playing for a year, his letter of intent was voided and he signed to play for the Titans.

Tonight, Webster faces the team he could have been playing for in the gym he could have called his own.
