2024 Utah Football Recruiting
Utah picked up the commitment of a four-star wide receiver out of Las Vegas last week, along with a three-star linebacker out of SoCal.
Thank you to all that helped me along this journey. Although it wasn’t easy I thank god for blessing me with these opportunities and many more to come. With that being said I’d like to announce that I am fully committed to the University of Utah #GoUtes pic.twitter.com/EPHsFZcgkH

60 In 60 Utes
Utah had two more guys come up in Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 poll last week.
Preseason Award Utes
Utah football’s head coach Kyle Whittingham was named to the Dodd Trophy preseason watch list and let’s just say he is in good company. Whittingham is the only head coach from the Pac-12 on the watch list which not only takes into account how good a coach is on the field, but off of it as well with academics and graduation of players.

Reviewing The Utah Utes, Their Opponents
Last week, in our countdown to the 2023 football season that reviews the biggest plays in each of Utah football’s 14 games from 2022, we hit on maybe the biggest play of the entire season.
It will be a long time before anyone forgets the night that quarterback Cam Rising plowed through a sea of Trojans for the two-point conversion and win on the night the Utes honored teammates Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe with hand painted helmets. Chills.
Additionally, last week we took a look at two more position groups for the Utes in 2023 in our countdown to fall camp.

Former Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd continues to impress on and off the field in Jacksonville. The first-round pick held a football camp for kids on a military base in Georgia. Both of Lloyds parents served in the U.S. Military making the event heartfelt, and meaningful.
Jaguars 2022 first-round pick Devin Lloyd is a really, really good dude. Lloyd, who grew in a military household, holds a free youth football camp at Fort Stewart.

Social Media Utes
Last Friday, Utah football revealed they spent time with the Red Rocks learning how to do gymnastics and it might be one of the best things you see today if you missed it last week. There have also been hints the gymnasts will be suiting up soon and learning football from the boys. We can’t wait.
Crossover of champions.

The latest episode of Crimson Corner takes it back to the 1970’s with former player and coach Steve F. Hallsey.
Hallsey dives into how much the Utah football program has changed since he played and coached, something he shares in common with Brian Johnson, how former BYU and San Francisco 49er quarterback Steve Young shaped his career trajectory, and his experience helping to coach the Athletes For Life camp on the Ute Reservation.
