UCLA has one season left in the Pac-12 before it departs for the Big Ten in 2024.
The Bruins, who have the most national championships in NCAA history, have seen success in recent years, making a Final Four run in 2021, making the Sweet 16 in each of the last three years, and winning the Pac-12 regular season title in 2023.
At Utah, the 6-foot-7, 186-pound guard played two seasons for coach Craig Smith, averaging 10.3 points, 3 rebounds and 2.7 assists as the team’s third-highest scorer this season.
