SALT LAKE CITY – The University of Utah football program received a commitment from standout wide receiver Ryan Peppins on Tuesday afternoon.

Ryan Peppins announced his commitment to Utah on social media on Tuesday afternoon.

“COMMITTED,” Peppins wrote. “First and foremost I would like to thank God, my family, teachers, teammates, and coaches from little league to high school. This journey hasn’t always been easy but worth it. Throughout my life, God has been so good and faithful to me. I’m so thankful for every single college that offered and showed interest in me. Special thanks to Coach Locklyn for being a true example of what a recruiter should be. I will always have the utmost admiration for you. As I will be decommiting from WKU, I am pleased to commit to the University of Utah.”

Peppins doesn’t have a star rating from 247Sports or the composite rating system. He verbally committed to Western Kentucky on May 14, 2021 and decommitted on Tuesday, the same day that he committed to Utah.

He received scholarship offers from Western Kentucky, Austin Peay, Eastern Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State, Troy and Tulane.

Peppins is the ninth recruit to verbally commit to Utah in the 2022 class. He joins four-star QB Nate Johnson, four-star LB Lander Barton, three-star RB Jaylon Glover, three-star athlete Carson Tabaracci, three-star QB Brandon Rose, three-star offensive tackle Tavo Motuapuaka, three-star athlete Tao Johnson and three-star WR Chris Reed.
