LOGAN According to various sources, former Utah State forward David Collette will transfer to the University of Utah. The former Aggie who was not dismissed from his scholarship will have two years of eligibility but will be ineligible for athletic assistance from his school for one year.

That ship, after all, has sailed. Even if he wanted, Utah's big man couldn't escape his status as the team's senior statesman. Collettes colleagues fondly refer to him as gramps. If he were attempting to seem younger than he is, the fact that he has been dealing with a chronic hip problem this season would definitely not help. Collette, who has started all 20 games this season, should be rested when the Utes (13-8, 5-5) take on Colorado (12-10, 4-6) at 7 p.m. Friday at the Coors Events Center in Boulder, Colo.

Collette was the most effective player for Utah State in their 77-60 preseason defeat against Cal-State Monterey Bay on November 6, scoring 22 points on 8-for-13 shooting and collecting five rebounds. Collette, who redshirted as a freshman in 2011-12 before embarking on a two-year LDS mission, will be a highly sought-after player on the transfer market due to his height (6-foot-10) and talent. Duryea isn't happy with how this scenario came to be, according to his statements in the release.
