Dean is a 5'10 guard out of Seattle, Washington, so he's a bit on the smaller side. He didn't have any major offers out of high school and originally signed with Portland State before moving on to Eastern Washington. However, he was the Eagles' top scorer in his sophomore season and certainly appears to be talented.
While I'm excited and happy the roster is filling up, even though Dean will have to sit out a year, it does seem like Utah is loading up on guards and the team continues to lack size.
But I'm not the coach and until proven otherwise, I trust Larry Krystkowiak's decisions.
So welcome to the Utes, Glen!
