Red roundup: Utah picks up Texas prep star

Published: Monday, May 9 2011 11:05 a.m. MDT

Consider it a trade, of sorts. After losing leading scorer and rebounder Will Clyburn in a transfer to Iowa State, Utah has picked up a former Cyclone recruit, prep star Anthony Odunsi, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound combo guard out of Travis High School in Fort Bend, Texas. An official announcement is expected later today.

Odunsi, who averaged 18.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.1 steals last season as a senior, originally signed with Iowa State but asked for a release last month. Houston sportscaster Bob Slovak of ABC-13 confirmed Odunsi's Utah move via Twitter.
