Before this spring, Makol Mawien was a relative unknown.
Then the 6-foot-9 center from Granger High enjoyed two of the most productive months of his young basketball career.
Last week, Utah offered Mawien a scholarship, the first hard offer the Utes have doled out for the Class of 2015. Mawien has been on Utah's campus in an unofficial capacity. He plays AAU basketball for the Utah Prospects Under-16 team. It's the same AAU team that Brekkott Chapman plays for, the 6-9 power forward from Roy High School who is the top recruiting target for the Utes in the 2014 class.
