"To represent the city and the university will be a big honour," Jean told TRU Sports Information.

The 6-foot-3 guard/wing won a B.C. high school basketball title playing for the Titans in 2018.

Meanwhile, libero Dylan Van Spankeren of Calgary has committed to play next season for the men’s volleyball team.

WolfPack men's volleyball head coach Pat Hennelly was not hunting for a libero this off-season, but Van Spankeren pursued a spot on the team and comes highly recommended.
