SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #8 is Utah’s Brant Kuithe (TE).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

“Brant Kuithe is a hybrid for us,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said of his tight end. “He is listed as a tight end, could play fullback, h-back, could play wide receiver, could be out in the slot. You are going to see him in a myriad of locations this fall.”

Utah’s Brant Kuithe

Kuithe is a senior from Katy, Texas. He was a three-star recruit coming out of Cinco Ranch High School. His first season with the Utes was in 2018, where he played all 14 games with two starts. Kuithe led the tight ends with 227 yards to go along with 20 receptions and one touchdown.

He appeared in all 14 games during the 2019 season, including nine starts, recording 34 receptions for 602 yards and six touchdowns. On the ground, Kuithe had six rushes for 102 yards and three TD’s. Kuithe received All-Pac-12 second-team honors.

During the COVID-shortened 2020 season, Kuithe played in all five games, finishing with 25 catches for 236 yards. This past season, Kuithe saw action in all 14 games with nine starts, posting 50 catches for 611 yards and six touchdowns.

This fall, the Utes will open their 2022 schedule on the road against the Florida Gators. The Utes and Gators will play on September 3. Utah’s first home game is against the Southern Utah Thunderbirds on September 10.
