Brumfield: "Hayden comes to Dixie from one of the most successful high school programs in the nation and has been a dynamic football player everywhere that he has been. At Centennial, Hayden followed the footsteps of Nebraska's Taylor Martinez, University of Arizona's Matt Scott and Arizona State's Michael Eubank and according to coaches that I have talked to, Hayden is as dynamic as all of them."

Jake Miller — 6-2, 235, Snow College — Bear River High School

Miller was 1st Team All WSFL defensive end, as well as 2nd Team NJCAA All American. He led Snow College in sacks with 13, as well as tackles for loss with 19. He also contributed with two safetys and one forced fumble.

Brumfield: "The signing of Jake Miller is absolutely huge for our football program. Jake brings to Dixie State not only a tremendous football player, but also an outstanding leader and person. He will bring immediate help to our defense and look for him to be a dominant force against GNAC opponents."

Brock Anderson — 6-0, 185, Syracuse High School

Anderson was 1st Team 5A All State. He passed for over 1,800 yards and 25 touchdowns, and rushed for nearly 400 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Brumfield: "Brock is a tremendous athlete that led his team to the 5A State Championship game. His success had to undoubtedly make him a candidate for the State MVP. His athleticism makes him versatile to play multiple positions on the field on both the offensive and defensive side.

Spencer Reinstein — 6-0, 205, Lone Peak High School

Reinstien was 2nd Team 5A All State. He accounted for an astounding 136 tackles and 2 sacks during his senior season.

Brumfield: "Spencer is a tough, active, hard working LB that will be a great addition to the Red Storm defense. Spencer's play on defense helped Lone Peak to a State Championship as a junior and a State semi final finish as a senior."

Payton Thomas — 6-2, 225, Lone Peak High School

Thomas helped lead Lone Peak to the 5A semi finals in his senior season. He accounted for 90 tackles during his senior campaign.

Brumfield: "Payton has done a great job both on and off the field (4.0 student), and we welcome him to the Red Storm Family. Payton helped Lone Peak win a 5A State Championship as a junior and reach the State semi finals as a senior."

BJ Cavender — 6-2, 305, Jordan High School

Cavender was 1st Team All-State as a junior and senior and then All Region as a junior and senior. He was also 5A MVP as a senior, an honor roll student, four year starter and a three year captain. He also helped his team win the 5A State Championship as a senior.

Brumfield: "I felt like BJ was one of the top if not the top offensive lineman in the state of Utah. We feel like BJ has the abilities to be a major contributor early and we look for him to be a major force for our offensive line for the next four years. Anytime that you can sign the 5A MVP in the state of Utah, especially when that person is an offensive lineman, gets me excited about the future of our program."

Tyler Solorzano — 5-11, 185, Timpview High School

Solorzano was 1st Team All Valley and 2nd Team All State as a senior and junior. He was a two-time state champion in his time at Timpview. He was also a four year starter at kicker and a two year starter at the safety position. He ranks second in toal points behind BYU's Riley Stephenson.

Brumfield: "Colton helped lead Spanish Fork to it's first state championship appearance in the school's history. It was hard to miss Colton's impact on the game seeing that he never left the field."
