Utah Basketball Snags Another Shooter

Despite the speed bumps that have jarred the Runnin' Ute program this spring, Head Coach Larry Krystkowiak continues to build the 2012-13 team into one that looks quite offensively potent.

The university announced this week that Jarred DuBois, a 6'3" 180 lb. sharp-shooting guard from Loyola Marymount University has signed up for a one-and-done season with the Utes. A graduate of LMU, he does not have to sit out a year before joining Utah, according to NCAA eligibility rules.

DuBois played more than three years at Loyola Marymount, and became the school's 23rd all-time leading scorer. He also buried nearly 150 three-pointers, shot close to 85 percent from the stripe, and averaged double-figures in scoring each year.

This is all good news for Utah and its fans, who saw the program sink in 2011-12 to depths of futility never before seen on The Hill.

"Jarred... will bring a great skill set both offensively and defensively, along with a high level of experience and solid leadership skills," said Krystkowiak. "I feel strongly that he can be a difference-maker."

Because DuBois has only one year of eligibility left to spend, he will only be with Utah for the 2012-13 season. However, as many programs have shown in recent years -- most notably Kentucky -- one-and-done players can make a substantial impact on a college basketball team. And with DuBois' scoring prowess and long-range accuracy -- not to mention the 233 assists and 117 steals he logged at LMU -- it's possible his contribution to next year's Runnin' Utes team may be substantial.

DuBois joins a Ute roster that includes LSU-transfer Aaron Dotson, top in-state recruit Jordan Loveridge, Glen Dean, Justin Seymour, Jeremy Olsen and Brandon Taylor, in addition to returning Ute standouts Jason Washburn, Cedric Martin and David Foster.
