SALT LAKE CITY - University of Utah men's basketball has announced the signing of Glen Dean, a rising junior guard, who will transfer from Eastern Washington University. The 2009-10 Big Sky Conference Freshman of the Year and a second-team all-Big Sky selection as a sophomore, Dean led the Eagles in scoring and assists in both years.

"We are very excited to have Glen join our program," said Utah head coach Larry Krystkowiak. "He brings a tremendous amount of success at the Div. I level and will have a full year to sit out while learning our system and continuing to improve his individual skill. He is a terrific person, great student and good leader, who we are looking forward to working with."

As a sophomore, Dean was the Eagles' top scorer at 13.3 points per game and led the team in assists at 4.2 per contest. He also led the squad in 3-point shooting, knocking down 41.6% from beyond the arc (41-of-113) and finished third on the team from the free throw line at 77.8% (77-of-99). He also chipped in 2.7 rebounds per game, while adding 20 steals.

Dean also led the Eagles in scoring as a freshman, pouring in 12.2 points per game, en route to BSC Freshman of the Year honors. He also led the squad in assists at 4.4 per contest, and was the team's third-best 3-point shooter at 42.9% (48-of-112). Dean added 2.6 rebounds per game to go with 26 steals as well.

The second Seattle, Wash., native to sign with the Utes this spring, Dean graduated from Roosevelt High School in 2008. He then spent one season at the Laurinburg Institute preparatory school in North Carolina after originally signing a letter of intent with Portland State. Dean averaged more than 14 points per game as a three-year starter at Roosevelt, scoring a total of 954 points in those three seasons. He earned first team All-Kingco 4A League honors as a senior, second team accolades as a junior and honorable mention as a sophomore. As a senior at Roosevelt, he averaged 15.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.3 assists per game, shooting 53% from the floor.

 

 

Dean will sit out the 2011-12 season due to NCAA transfer rules and will have two years of eligibility remaining. He plans to major in pre-med and intends to become a doctor following his basketball career.
