Utah adds guard for 2012


According to multiple sources, point guard Brandon Taylor (Los Angeles/Pacific Hill H.S.) has verbally committed to Utah for next season.

Taylor chose the Utes over St. Mary's. He is the third recruit for head coach Larry Krystkowiak, joining ESPNU 100 small forward Jordan Loveridge (West Jordan, Utah/West Jordan H.S.), point guard Justin Seymour (Smyrna, Ga./Campbell H.S.) and small forward Josh Hearlihy (North Hollywood, Calif./Harvard-Westlake H.S.).

The Utes also have two players returning from LDS Church missions who will be on their roster next season: center Dallin Bachynski (Calgary, Alb./Southern Utah Univ.) and power forward Jeremy Olsen (Lawrencville, Ga./Collins Hill H.S.).
