Utah State transfer David Collette has committed to Utah, sources told CBS Sports on Tuesday.

He will pay his own way during the upcoming semester and then be on scholarship in the fall of 2016. Collette has two years of eligibility remaining.

The versatile forward averaged 12.8 points and 5.0 rebounds last year for the Aggies under former coach Stew Morrill, who retired following last season. He asked Utah State first-year coach Tim Duryea for a release to transfer and was denied.

The initial restrictions were that Collette was not allowed to play in a power-five conference, but that turned into a straight block of the release.

He will join Kyle Kuzma and Brekkott Chapman in Utah’s front court next season. The Utes are going to lose Jordan Loveridge and likely Jakob Poeltl, who will probably declare for the 2016 NBA Draft.
