Another walk-on will join the Runnin' Utes back court for the next year, and if the name sounds a little familiar, don't sweat it.
Eris Winder, a 6-foot-1 point guard from Las Vegas, is the newest Ute, according to a school news release. Winder is a multi-faceted guard who spent the last year playing for Elev8 Sports Institute on the post graduate roster.
He played his high school career at Palo Verde High, averaging 17.3 points, 5.8 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game. Although he's thin framed, the Utes like his length and quickness. A quick glance at the highlight tape above shows his on-court nimbleness and vision as well as some of his scoring ability.
