The recent hiring of offensive coordinator Norm Chow from UCLA could be a factor.
Overall, Scalley noted that the Utes are pleased with how things are going. He explained that recruiting in the Pac-12 is a "different deal." Many recruits opt to visit multiple schools in the league before making a final decision.
As such, Scalley said it's more important to focus on who you get and not who you don't.
Whittingham has a similar view.
"I don't know anybody who gets everybody they wanted. But we feel like we've done well and we've helped ourselves and made our team better," he said. "That's what it's all about — improving and we think we've done that this year."
The good and the bad
Biggest catch: Harvey Langi, Bingham HS running back.
The Utes filled an immediate need by securing the state's premier back, winning a recruiting battle with USC. Langi will compete for playing time right away.
The one that got away: Derrick Brown, Vista Murrieta HS (Calif.) quarterback.
The highly regarded quarterback committed to Utah early on. He recently changed his mind, however, and now plans to sign with Washington.
