Dybantsa is the number one overall prospect in the 2025 recruiting class by the 247Sports Composite. Yesterday, he reported an offer from the University of Utah. Dybantsa’s offer sheet of schools includes Alabama, Baylor, UConn, Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, and others.

A 6-foot-8, 200-pound wing, Dybantsa was previously at Prolific Prep in Napa, California, for the 2023-24 season. Last fall, he reclassified from the 2026 class to 2025.

He averaged 21.2 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 3.5 assists for Prolific Prep.

Dybantsa hails from Brockton, Massachusetts, where he was a Gatorade Player of the Year in Massachusetts as a high school freshman.

Utah Prep is an Independent program that will not contend for UHSAA Championships.
