SALT LAKE CITY — Larry Krystkowiak’s team is getting some wing help from the junior college ranks.

National basketball recruiting writer Adam Zagoria reported Monday that Jordan Kellier, a 6-foot-6 wing from Williston State College, has committed to play for the Utes. Kellier posted on Twitter late Saturday night he will make his announcement Monday.

#IGIPMT First and foremost I would love to thank Jesus Christ for allowing me to play this beautiful game called basketball and I also want to thank all the Universities who are recruiting me. With that being said, I will be announcing my commitment on Monday!

Kellier was a freshman at Williston State last season, where he averaged 17.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. He started 19 of the 21 games he played for the Tetons — located in Williston, N.D. — and shot 44.6% from the field, as well as 27.3% from 3-point range while averaging 1.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game.

Utah is looking to add to its 2020 class — which includes a trio of guards in Pelle Larsson, Ian Martinez and Sky View High’s Mason Falslev — after 6-6 Caleb Lohner, who prepped at Wasatch Academy, received a release from his letter of intent at Utah and signed with BYU.

The Utes have also seen two players leave this offseason, as starting wing Both Gath transferred to Minnesota and reserve canter Matt Van Komen headed to Saint Mary’s after one year in the Utah program.
