At Loyola Marymount, Jarred DuBois played shooting guard, while Anthony Ireland ran the point.
In that role, DuBois made jumpers, created off the dribble and scored 10 points per game last season.
As a Ute, it's pretty clear that his role is going to be different.
Through the first week of practice, the left-hander has been used exclusively as a point guard, directing the offense and directing traffic at the same time.
Although he didn't play that at Loyola Marymount, it's not a foreign concept to DuBois.
"I've played the point for most of my life," DuBois said. "In fact, I prefer to play the point. I like being able to see the entire floor."
Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak loves guys who can play more than one position. He envisions DuBois possibly backing up Glen Dean, but being able to play with him at the same time.
At 6-foot-2, DuBois is an average-sized shooting guard. But he would be a big point guard.
"We're moving people around, seeing how the pieces fit," Krystkowiak said. "We always thought Jarred was a combo guard. He's got the ability to give us some options."
