SALT LAKE CITY – Close to a year after Levani Damuni announced he was transferring to Utah from Stanford, the linebacker announced his intention to play one more season for the Utes in 2024.
Damuni’s announcement came late Tuesday night and is a welcome one. The talented linebacker is joined by fellow teammates, quarterback Cam Rising and cornerback Zemaiah Vaughn in announcing their return to the Utes.

More announcements are expected to trickle in the coming days.
Levani Damuni Comes To Utah
Damuni was one of several Cardinal to enter the transfer portal after longtime head coach David Shaw unexpectedly resigned following Stanford’s loss to BYU last season.
Damuni started 24 games his last two seasons with Stanford and 31 total games over his Cardinal career.
In 2022 he finished with 76 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and one sack while forcing two fumbles. Damuni had his highest tackle total of the season against Utah earlier that year, finishing with 12 stops.
I thank God and my family for discernment in this process. Blessed to have the opportunity to come home. Go Utes❗️ pic.twitter.com/F5kY5zAvZg

The linebacker has contributed 75 total tackles in 2023 for the Utes with a bowl game yet to play.
Damuni will certainly be a welcomed piece of Utah’s defense for 2024 as the Utes transition from the Pac-12 conference to the Big 12 where a bunch of new opportunity to make big splashes reside.
