Utah Utes football: Utes to start 2 freshmen on the offensive line against USC
Whittingham said that junior Vyncent Jones and junior Latu Heimuli are unavailable this week, prompting depth chart changes. Siaosi Aiono, a 6-foot-2, 305-pound redshirt freshman, is slated to start at right guard. He'll play alongside true freshman Jeremiah Poutasi, who started at right tackles against BYU and Arizona State.
"They've got to step up to the plate and be ready to go," Whittingham said while expressing confidence in both players.
Utah's other starting offensive linemen include senior center Tevita Stevens, senior left tackle Sam Brenner and junior left guard Jeremiah Tofaeono.
