    Below is a list of former players/recruits during the rebuild process, Krystko took over in 2011. All or most of these guys really helped get Utah back to where they belong and should be noted.

    Morgan Grim - Transferred to Utah State for the remainder of his college career. Never averaged more than 3 points. After Utah St he moved to Iceland and Estonia to play professionally. Currently he's in his third year for Finke Baskets in Germany.

After going undrafted Tyler played for ETB Wohnbau Baskets Essen in Germany and currently plays for Winling Basketball Club in Hong Kong. Last year he single handedly won the Senior Shield trophy scoring 42 points in the championship game.

    Dallin Rogers - Chose to play football for the U of U instead of basketball. Played all four years at the tight end position and graduated in 2012 with a bachelors in business.

    Again this goes back to players from the 2007 recruiting class on, i.e. players who played for/or about the time of Krystko. If you can think of anybody I missed let me know and I'll look them up.
