“If you add the guys that we can’t talk about it’s going to be more like seven or eight,'' Whittingham said. “That’s about typical for us. A couple that got away outside of the state to BCS schools. But Utah is always going to be our priority and we always want to do a thorough job in Utah first before we go anywhere else.’’
Whittingham also addressed the coaching staff situation, noting that coach Ilaisa Tuiaki has been moved from fullbacks/tight ends coach to the defensive line and that an offensive coach would be hired soon.
“We will hire an offensive staff member as soon as tomorrow or maybe within a week,’’ he said.
Whittingham wouldn’t say whether or not that might be Dennis Erickson, who was in town Tuesday to interview with Whittingham.
