Utah State makes solid addition via its cross-state rival

New Utah State coach Ryan Odom has bolstered his first roster since taking over for the Aggies, poaching a player from the school's biggest rival. That would be 6'0 guard Rylan Jones, who announced he would play at Utah State after two years at Utah.


Jones suffered through an injury-plagued 2021 season, but was quietly one of the best freshman guards in the Pac-12 in 2019-2020. Jones averaged 9.6 points per game on over 38 percent shooting during that freshman season.
