Costelli was a four-star recruit coming out of Mission Viejo High School. He was ranked the No. 10 dual threat quarterback in the nation. The quarterback position is very deep at Utah at the moment even after Charlie Brewer departed back in September. Cam Rising has established himself as the quarterback of the future and is just a sophomore this season.
Ja’Quinden Jackson is the backup and is a redshirt freshman coming from Texas. The coaches were wanting to redshirt Costelli, which is why he was the fourth string quarterback behind Rising, Jackson and Bryson Barnes.
Also, Utah has two talented quarterbacks that have verbally committed, including four-star prospect Nate Johnson and three-star standout Brandon Rose.
