Once he joins the Aggies program following graduation, McChesney will be playing in the Mountain West Conference of NCAA basketball, which features a number of well known programs such as UNLV, Colorado State, Air Force and Boise State to name a few.
Utah State has a new coach on the court this year, with Craig Smith moving over from South Dakota, named as the University's 19th head coach in the team's history in March of this year.
The Six foot - nine Rupertite appeared on the Aggies radar after a summer session in Las Vegas which highlighted some of his skills for American college scouts and recruiters, he also had some standout time with the Team BC Under 17 program, arriving on the provincial scene as a fifteen year old. He was also been part of the Team Canada experience over the summer.

Justin started his U Sports career with UBC, transferring to the Vikings earlier this year.
