SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah basketball has received a commitment from junior college wing Jordan Kellier.

The 6’6 wing from Portmore, Jamaica will join the Utah program after playing at Williston State junior college.

According to Adam Zagoria of the New York Times first reported the move by Kellier and mentioned that he had two or potentially three years to play.

Williston State College is located in North Dakota. Kellier started in 19 of the 21 games played last season while averaging 17.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He shot 44.6 percent from the field, 27.3 percent from beyond the arc and 79.8 percent from the free throw line.
