One of Utah's best recruiters may not be a coach or even a player who has suited up for the Utes.
At least in the case of 6-foot-5 point guard Delon Wright, who committed to the Utes on Thursday, senior guard Jarred DuBois was as key as any of the coaches. Wright, who attended Leuzinger High School in Los Angeles and is now in his second year at San Francisco City College, knew DuBois, a Loyola Marymount transfer, from L.A., and said he was "like a kind of older brother to me."
Of course, DuBois will be gone by the time Wright becomes a Ute in 2013, but he will still be greeted by a coaching staff with which he says he connected immediately and high expectations. He will have two years of eligibility remaining when he joins the program.
