University of Utah running back DevonTae Booker eludes defenders during the Red vs White game at Rice-Eccles Stadium Saturday, April 19, 2014 in Salt Lake City.

Day 4: Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said Thursday’s practice was the “best in camp.” After three days on the artificial turf at Rice-Eccles Stadium because of wet grass, the team was finally able to practice at Ute Field.

Standout performers: Whittingham said that running backs Devontae Booker and Bubba Poole had nice days and ripped off some big runs. Wide receiver Dres Anderson also drew praise, as did safeties Brian Blechen and Tevin Carter. Whittingham added that defensive tackle Lowell Lotulelei shows a lot of promise.

Quotable: “We’ve helped ourself tremendously with this last recruiting class across the board.” — Utah coach Kyle Whittingham

Injuries: Offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi wore a cast on his left arm as a preventative measure to protect a bruise.

Next up: Friday morning at Ute Field.
