It's not going to be every year that Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak can recruit a homegrown Rivals150 player. During his first year on the job, he had the chance and capitalized Friday.
West Jordan (Utah) High star Jordan Loveridge made the Utes staff very happy when he offered up a verbal commitment.
An unknown to most headed into the July evaluation period, Loveridge was one of the month's revelations as he took the summer circuit by storm playing with Utah Pump 'N Run.
Standing 6-foot-6, Loveridge is a skilled forward who can step out and shoot the three and has the strength to play around the rim. He runs the floor, rebounds his position well and can be utilized as either a big wing or a stretch four.
Currently ranked No. 127 in the country, Loveridge projects as a guy who could be an instant contributor for the Utah program.
