Dean plans to suit up for UI
College basketball: Glen Dean, the former Eastern Washington University guard and brother of Idaho men’s basketball signee Perrion Callandret, will play his final year for the Vandals, according to multiple media reports.
Dean, who played at Utah last year, has one year of eligibility left and can play next season at Idaho as a graduate transfer under NCAA rules.
Dean transferred to Utah in 2011 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 after averaging 13.3 points in 2010-11 at EWU. He was the Big Sky’s Freshman of the Year in 2009-10.
Former EWU coach Kirk Earlywine, who brought Dean to Cheney, is the director of player development at Idaho.
