LOGAN, Utah – It has been a fruitful early National Signing Day for Utah State as Blake Anderson and staff look to build on the program’s third-straight bowl appearance.

USU announced it has added 19 total players on Wednesday, December 20. Of the 19 players, 13 will enroll for spring semester classes at Utah State.

“We’ve got to raise the level of competition in every room,” head coach Blake Anderson told KSL Sports Zone on Wednesday afternoon. “I think today’s signing class was a great step in that direction.”

In-state prep signees Tate Kjar (wide receiver – Corner Canyon) and Grayson Brousseau (tight end – Lehi) highlight four high school recruits.

“We always want to start at home,” Anderson said of the in-state signings. “They were no-brainers to us. They fit us so well. We’re excited about them.”

USU also added eight players from the junior college ranks and seven transfers out of four-year institutions.

Utah State is expected to finalize its complete 2024 recruiting class on Wednesday, February 7.
