Having to re-stock your roster every year must be getting old for college basketball coaches all over the country, but Utah Tech has some exciting new additions this year including former Cedar City state champion Dallin Grant.

Here's the press release from UT Athletics Media Relations about transfer Justin Bieker.

"Utah Tech head men's basketball coach Jon Judkins has announced the signing of San Francisco transfer Justin Bieker to a financial aid agreement ahead of the upcoming 2024-25 season.

Bieker spent four seasons with the Dons' program and has one more year of eligibility remaining.

"Justin is a great addition to our program," Judkins said. "He plays with great energy and instincts. Justin is a high IQ player that plays the game the right way. He comes from a great program and will bring age and experience to our roster."

The 6-5 guard averaged 1.2 points and 0.8 rebounds in 28 games off the bench at USF last season. Bieker posted a career-high eight points in the Dons' season-opening home win over Bethesda (11/6/23), and tallied a West Coast Conference career best six points at San Diego (1/11/24).

Bieker played in 65 career games in his four years at USF, where he was an academic all-WCC selection last season, and was named to the 2021-22 NABC Honors Court for Academic Excellence.

A native of Portland, Ore., Bieker was a three-year letter winner at Jesuit High School, where he helped lead the Crusaders to a 2019 Oregon 6A state championship as a senior team captain.

That season he averaged 18 points and seven rebounds a game on his way to first team all-state, first team all-Metro and Metro League Player of the Year honors. Bieker was also tabbed as the 2019 Oregon 6A Tournament's Most Outstanding Player by Max Hoops, and was named to the all-tournament team.

Bieker is Utah Tech's fifth signee ahead of next season, joining fellow spring signee Dallin Grant (Cedar City, Utah/Utah State, along with fall Utah prep signees Owen Mackay from St. George's Snow Canyon HS, Hunter Schenck from Weber HS, and Tanner Davis from Sky View HS."
