Marko Kovacevic became Larry Krystkowiak's fourth commit for the 2013 class, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned.
A 6-foot-11 center, Kovacevic will be at Western Nebraska Community College this season, before enrolling on campus next year.
He originally signed with Montana, but was ruled ineligible last month. He averaged 12 points and eight rebounds per game as a sophomore at Western Nebraska. He is described as a skilled big man who can rebound and is deceptively athletic.
Kovacevic is the first frontcourt player to commit to the Utes for next season. Their first three commitments are guards, with Parker Van Dyke from East High and Brandon Miller from Brighton the headliners.
