Lewis Evans, a 6-8 forward, transfers to Utah State from Tulsa. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

"Grayson and Lew are both high-character kids," Morrill said. "[They] will add maturity and experience to our roster."

A native of North Logan, Utah, Grayson Moore started 21 games last season at Northwest Nazarene. He averaged 10.8 points, seven rebounds and 1.6 assists in 30.8 minutes.

"Grayson is very active and athletic," Morrill said. "He has improved by leaps and bounds every year during his career. He can play either forward position and will continue to raise his game."

Moore attended Sky View High School. As a senior, he averaged 15 points, five rebounds and five assists per game.

Evans is from Salt Lake City. He averaged 5.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20.6 minutes last year. He played in 34 games, including 22 starts. He helped the Golden Hurricane to a 21-13 record, including 13-3 in Conference USA.

"Lew is a ‘big’ that gives us skill and physicality, which are attributes that are always needed," Morrill said. "He’s an excellent shooter, a solid defender, and his upside is exciting."

Evans played at Highland High School. He earned All-State honors in 2011, when he averaged 15 points and nine rebounds while leading the Rams to the Class 4A championship.
