Groomed By Mormons? New Utah Jazz NBA Pick Controversy Explodes

On this breaking news episode of Mormonish Podcast, Rebecca and Landon delve into the strange scenario surrounding new Utah Jazz NBA draft pick, Kyle Filopowski. 

Information surfaced this week that Kyle's fiance, Caitlin Hutchinson is almost six years his senior and started dating him when he was in high school and she was in her 20s. 

Added to this scenario is Kyle's family claiming that he has been groomed into Mormonism by Caitlin and cut off contact with his family two years ago.

Kyle was slated to be in the top 20 NBA draft picks this year but was not chosen until pick number 32 by the Utah Jazz. Insider information says that the coaches were concerned by the allegations of grooming by his fiance and his estrangement from his family.

Kyle and Caitlin are now headed to Utah so we'll see what happens next!
