SALT LAKE CITY – ESPN’s Mike Greenberg said that former Utah Utes and current Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley might be “a star in the making.”

The host of ESPN’s “Get Up” praised Huntley following his performance during Week 15 of the NFL season.

Huntley started for the second time this season and nearly led the Ravens to a win over the Green Bay Packers.

The former Ute scored four touchdowns in a one-point loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

The next day, Greenberg praised Huntley as one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL.

“There aren’t 32 better QBs in the NFL than he looked yesterday,” the host said of the former Utah standout.

Huntley finished the game 28/40 passing for 215 yards and two touchdowns. He posted a 99.5 Rating. Huntley added 13 carries for 73 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

In five games this season, Huntley has thrown for 743 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception with a 68.8 completion rate. He’s added 29 rushes for 168 yards and two touchdowns with his legs.

With the loss on December 19, the Ravens fell to an 8-6 record this season.

Baltimore’s next game is against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, December 26 at 11 a.m. (MDT) on CBS.
