Report: Connor Harding to transfer from BYU to UVU

A move to nearby UVU makes a lot of sense for Harding, who is married to BYU women’s basketball star Paisley Harding.

A couple of weeks after entering the NCAA transfer portal, former BYU guard Connor Harding reportedly has found a new program to continue his college basketball career. 

Harding is transferring to Utah Valley University, according to WAC Hoops Digest.

Last season, Harding averaged 5.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 26 games for the Cougars. He started the first 12 games of the season. 

A move to nearby UVU makes sense for Harding, who is married to BYU women’s basketball star Paisley Harding. She is expected to return to the Cougars next season. 

Connor Harding has two seasons of eligibility remaining. 

BYU has seen three other players enter the transfer portal since the end of the season — Kolby Lee, Jesse Wade and Wyatt Lowell.
