SALT LAKE CITY – It’s crazy to think that we have already reached the end of the college football regular season with Senior Day approaching on Friday for Utah.

The COVID-19 pandemic froze all eligibility in college football last season, allowing everyone to return in 2021 with a “free year” under their belt.

Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said at his weekly press conference on Monday that seniors and draft-eligible juniors will probably walk during the Senior Day ceremony. Even if players that walk on Friday that still have eligibility remaining can decide to come back for the 2022 season. This is to ensure that every player gets honored on Senior Day even if it happens twice.

Seniors On Utah’s Roster

The Utes have 10 seniors on their roster:

  • Vonte Davis, S
  • Theo Howard, WR
  • Keegan Markgraf, LS
  • Brandon McKinney, S
  • Viane Moala, DT
  • Ali’i Niumatalolo, TE
  • Bamidele Olaseni, OL
  • Hauati Pututau, DT
  • Sire Woods, TE
  • Tyrone Young-Smith, S

Draft-Eligible Players

It’s a lock that Devin Lloyd is going to enter the upcoming NFL Draft. Nick Ford and Brant Kuithe also decided to return for the 2021 season but also have another year of eligibility if they choose to come back in 2022.

  • Stone Azarcon, S
  • Britain Covey, WR
  • Jaylen Dixon, WR
  • Solomon Enis, WR
  • Nick Ford, OL
  • Cole Fotheringham, TE
  • R.J. Hubert, S
  • Devin Kaufusi, DT
  • Dalton Kincaid, TE
  • Brant Kuithe, TE
  • Devin Lloyd, LB
  • Joe Ludwig, FB
  • Jeremy Mercier, LB
  • Pierre Moudourou, WR
  • T.J. Pledger, RB
  • Nephi Sewell, LB
  • Mika Tafua, DE

We will all find out who walks during the Senior Day ceremony on Friday when the Utes host the Colorado Buffaloes at 2 p.m. MT on FOX.
