Orem High wing Jordan Darger, 6-foot-5, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Western Nebraska Community College.
Darger helped the Golden Tigers win the 4A state championship as a junior, but a shoulder injury sidelined him during his senior season.
"We feel like we have added a very versatile player in Jordan. He comes from a winning program and a great family," said WNCC coach Russell Beck. "We expect him to come in and give us some firepower at the forward position."
WNCC's roster this coming season will include no fewer than eight Utahns. The roster includes Mountain Crest's Tyler Crosbie, Northridge's Preston Christensen, Syracuse's Diante Mitchell, Bingham's Brandon Morley, South Sevier's Austin Clark, Cedar's Joel Einfeldt and Timpanogos' Tanner Lebaron.
