Vandals Add Former Eagle Dean

Posted: Updated:
MOSCOW, Idaho -

University of Idaho men's basketball coach Don Verlin has finalized his roster for the 2012-13 season with the additions of Utah transfer Glen Dean and walk-on Chad Sherwood.

Dean, a 5-foot-10 point guard from Seattle, Wash., played in all 33 games and started 21 for Utah in 2012-13. He averaged 5.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. Before arriving at Utah, Dean spent his freshman and sophomore seasons at Eastern Washington University under then head coach and current Idaho assistant Kirk Earlywine. At EWU Dean was Big Sky Freshman of the year in 2009-10 and a second-team all-Big Sky honoree in 2010-11, and a two-time Big Sky All-Academic selection.

"It's great to be able to add Glen Dean to the roster, no question about that," Verlin said. "He graduated from the University of Utah and per NCAA rules he was able to transfer. Glen wanted to come back and play with his brother Perrion and obviously with Coach Earlywine on staff it's a great fit. Having a guy with his Division I experience and his maturity and already having his degree, it was a great fit for both of us but obviously it's great the University of Idaho."

Dean graduated from Utah with a 3.07 GPA and will pursue his master's degree at Idaho. He has one year of eligibility at Idaho and will play with his brother, freshman Perrion Callandret.

"They're very excited, and I think it's going to be very good for both of them," Verlin said of the brothers playing together this season. "Glen has mentored Perrion throughout his whole career. It's a good story and we're all feeling good about it and hopefully those two guys can make immediate contributions to our program."

Sherwood, a 6-foot-1 guard from West Albany High School in Albany, Ore., joins Idaho as a walk-on. He was a first-team all-league and an all-state selection, averaging 16 points per game.

"Chad Sherwood was a very good high school player," Verlin said. "Their team was one of the best in the state of Oregon and Chad was their go-to guy. He's a very skilled guy, he can shoot it, handle it, pass it, and he's a pretty good athlete. We were very fortunate that Chad wanted to continue playing basketball and chose the University of Idaho. He had other options; he could have gone to Oregon State or other places. We're very fortunate to have a guy with Chad's ability to come and help us out."
