Glen Dean, the former Eastern Washington University guard and brother of Idaho signee Perrion Callandret, will graduate from Utah and transfer to UI, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. Dean has one year of eligibility left and can play immediately for the Vandals under NCAA rules.
Idaho coach Don Verlin said he could not comment when contacted by The Spokesman-Review.
Dean transferred to Utah after two successful years with the Eagles. The 5-foot-10 Seattle native averaged 5.5 points in 25.4 minutes per game last season with the Utes in the Pac-12 after averaging 13.3 ppg in 2010-11 and 12.2 ppg in 2009-10 at EWU.
Dean will be one of seven additions to Verlin's roster next year. The Vandals completed a six-man signing class yesterday, and Verlin told the S-R that a “couple guys” are planning to transfer.
