The 6-foot-7, 220-pound West Jordan (Utah) 2012 power forward told Scout.com that he felt Utah was the best situation for him.
"I just felt like it was the best all-around fit," Loveridge said. "The basketball program, all the coaches and the atmosphere of the school all felt like a good fit for me."
The Utah coaching staff played a big role in Loveridge's commitment.
"I had a good relationship with all of them; every single coach," he said. "Of course Utah is in the Pac-12 too, so that's a big plus."
Loveridge is looking forward to helping restore Utah's program in a new conference with a new coach.
"I see it rebuilding back to where it was," he said. "I think it will be a really good program."
