In his three-year stint with Utah, he collected 52 receptions for 785 yards and four touchdowns in 36 games.

Defensive end Chris Hart announced on his Twitter page that he will leave the program as a graduate transfer.

His freshman season in 2016, the Fort Lauderdale, Florida product played four games while recording a fumble recovery. In 2017, Hart had three five tackles, one tackle-for-loss, one sack and and one fumble recovery. Last season he played in four games but didn’t record any statistics.
