National signing day: Utah verbal commits

Published: Tuesday, Feb. 5 2013 3:20 p.m. MST

The lead up to national signing day has seen colleges and universities do anything they can to land highly touted recruits. But as 18-year-olds are prone to do, there have been some notable stories of players waffling back and forth between schools.

Utah has hit the recruiting block hard grabbing five in-state commits and recruiting heavily from California and Texas.

Here is a list of players who have verbally committed to Utah.

Carter is being recruited as a safety

Looks like a very promissing class of recruits. I am glad to see all those linemen.
Go Utes


Highcountry Ghost, considering his size and the quality of the starting safeties Utah already has, I wouldn't be surprised to see him at LB. He was also one of the nation's top WR prospects coming out of high school, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him on offense, either. Very versatile player.

From what I understand, if everything works out as expected. Rowe will move from FS to SS, and Carter would be at FS because of his ball hawking skills, Blechen would then be moved to LB.
All depends on how fast he gets on campus, and how fast he picks up the scheme at safety which is very difficult at Utah.


That's all feasible, similar to what they tried to do with Keith McGill. Either way, the best players will end up on the field, and Rowe and Blechen will definitely be part of it, and Carter should be, too, based on reputation.
