After five players transferred in the offseason, Utah basketball’s 2023-24 roster is starting to slowly take shape.

The Utes received a commitment from Washington Huskies guard Cole Bajema on Tuesday night.

Bajema, who announced his pledge on Twitter, played one season at Michigan before transferring to Washington, where he spent the past three seasons. He has one remaining year of eligibility.

The 6-foot-7, 190-pound guard started 30 games for the Huskies last season, averaging 8.8 points, 0.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds. He shot 39% from the field, 36% from 3-point range and hit 85.1% of his free-throw attempts.

Bajema is the third transfer picked up by Craig Smith in 2023, joining Colorado center Lawson Lovering and Salt Lake Community College guard Hunter Erickson.
