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).
Last year, Kuithe came in at No. 8 on the 2022 60 in 60 list.
“Brant Kuithe is a hybrid for us,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said Kuithe in 2022. “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.”
