As BYU sharpshooter Jimmer Fredette ascended to national basketball stardom, photos of his girlfriend, BYU cheerleader Whitney Wonnacott, began popping up everywhere. Such shots were of particular interest in these parts, since Wonnacott grew up here and graduated from Chatfield High School.

Now, she's back in the spotlight, after Jimmer asked her to marry him.

Fredette informed the populace the new-fashioned way -- via Twitter:

I'm officially engaged everyone. She Said yes and she was completely surprised! It was perfect!! #perfectnight than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

He also tweeted the following photo, in which Wonnacott shows off her engagement ring:

She said "yes," obviously.
Wonnacott has been getting more spotlight time of late, including several glamour shots at the ESPY awards last month. As a result, Yahoo! Sports reports, she's become the target of autograph hunters, too -- the kind who interrupt the couple while they're eating dinner. Such attention will only escalate now, but in other respects, the timing of their engagement was perfect. Although Fredette was drafted by the Sacramento Kings, NBA players are currently locked out. So he's working on his game in Utah, where Wonnacott is still attending BYU.

No wedding date has been set thus far -- but you can bet it'll be big news when it is. Look below to see our earlier roundup of Wonnacott photos, featuring her with Fredette and friends.
