Utah nabs local big
Utah picked up their second verbal pledge of the 2015 class late Thursday evening. Makol Mawien, of Granger (Utah) West Valley City, committed to the Utes over interest from a host of schools including BYU, Arizona State and a host of other schools. "I think I'll succeed here, and I think staying home will be the best for me," Mawien told the Salt Lake Tribune. "I like their style, I like Coach K, and he's a good coach. I think it will be a great place to play." A 6-foot-9 post player, Mawien showed improvement on the AAU circuit this summer, especially on the offensive end. He's comfortable making mid-range jumpers, as well as hooks over his right shoulder. Mawien also has potential as a defender. Utah now has a pair of recruits in the 2015 class. Mawien joins West Valley City (Utah) Hunter standout Noah Togiai to make up their two-man recruiting class.
