Monson, first counselor in the First Presidency and chairman of the Deseret News board of directors; and Wm. James Mortimer, Deseret News publisher. A junior last year who earned second-team All-America honors, Van Horn was the topic of speculation that he may opt to play in the NBA. However, he recently announced that he is returning to play his senior season with the Utes.
