SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah sophomore running back Jordan Wilmore has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

Wilmore announced his decision on Twitter on Monday.

“Utah man what a ride it was,” Wilmore wrote. “I enjoyed my experience here. The relationships that I made here will be with me forever. To all the coaches there I appreciate you. Coach Whitt thank you for giving me the opportunity to come to this university. Coach Mac and Shah I appreciate ya’ll for everything ya’ll what it is is. But after speaking with my family I’ve decided to enter the transfer portal to continue my academic and athletic career. Utah I’ll forever be grateful for the opportunity.”

Wilmore is in his second season with the Utes. In 2019, he ran the ball 49 times for 194 yards and one touchdown. This season, Wilmore had 18 carries for 54 yards in two games.

This decision comes after Devin Brumfield put his name into the portal. The emergence of true freshman Ty Jordan has led to less carries for Wilmore and Brumfield.

Wilmore was a last minute recruit for the Utes after originally committing to USC, then decommitting and almost signing with Arizona State before joining the Utes.

On Tuesday morning, Kyle Whittingham addressed the news of Wilmore and Brumfield entering the transfer portal.

“They both decided that it was in their best interest to move on,” Whittingham stated. “They were great members of our program while they were here. Both were all in. Great teammates, great students. We wish them all the best.”
