Utah Valley adds multiple transfers

Head coach Todd Phillips and the rest of UVU‘s coaching staff have been busy on the recruiting trail and the Wolverines added three players to their team on May 6 and 7.

Kylin Green joins UVU

On May 6, Utah Valley shared that former JUCO point guard Kylin Green had joined the Wolverines.

The Dallas, Texas native transferred to UVU from Daytona State.

“Kylin is a dynamic guard who can both manage the game and score effectively,” Phillips said of Green in a statement. “I’m really impressed by his approach to the game. He brings a tireless work ethic, fierce competitiveness, and remarkable leadership on and off the court. Kylin is not just a consistent threat from beyond the arc, but also a playmaker who sees the floor exceptionally well. His decision-making is top-notch. More than anything, he has the ability to elevate his teammates. We’re thrilled to have him join the Utah Valley family.”

Welling brothers join Wolverines

A day after adding Green, Utah Valley announced the additions of Corner Canyon High School products Carter and Hayden Welling.

The brothers landed at UVU after playing for UC Irvine.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Carter and Hayden to our team,” Phillips said of the brothers. “Their experience and brotherly synergy will be an invaluable asset to our team. “Carter brings a strong offensive presence, and Hayden’s leadership and versatility make them a formidable duo on the court. Their shared history of success promises to energize our entire program. We’re thrilled to welcome the brothers back home to Utah.”

Last season as a freshman, Carter averaged 7.1 points per game on 50.7 percent shooting from the field.

Hayden shot 49 percent overall and scored 1.5 points per game. Hayden has two years of eligibility remaining.
