SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is complete. Coming in at #1 is Utah’s Cam Rising (QB).

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).

“He is the leader of our football team, leader of the leaders,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said of his quarterback. “It’s going to be great to have him as the number one player in the state of Utah playing for the Utes. As Cam Rising goes, so goes the University of Utah football team.”

Utah’s Cam Rising

Rising is a junior from Ventura, California. He joined the Utes in 2019 as a transfer from Texas. Before the COVID-shortened 2020 season, Rising beat Jake Bentley for the starting quarterback job but suffered a season-ending injury in the first quarter of the season opener against USC. After losing the starting quarterback battle in 2021, Rising replaced Charlie Brewer in the second half of the San Diego State game and never looked back.

Rising started the last 11 games of the season, completing 204 of his 320 pass attempts for 2,493 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. After leading the Utes to their first Pac-12 Championship and Rose Bowl appearance, Rising was named first-team All-Pac-12. During the 2021 campaign, Rising had five games with 200+ passing yards and one game with over 300.

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.
