Utah football: Top 10 position battles entering fall camp

Published: Friday, Aug. 2 2013 12:02 p.m. MDT

After a disappointing campaign in 2012 that saw Utah football miss out on a bowl game for the first time under coach Kyle Whittingham, the Utes enter the 2013 season with a resolve to return to their winning ways.

Utah has solidified depth and talent across several key positions, such as quarterback and offensive line, but several questions remain on both sides of the football. With the start of practices just days away, today we break down the top 10 position battles to watch as the Utes enter fall camp.

Cool Article! Love hearing about the potential for the future!

Nice write up again Dan.

Mesa, AZ

A note on DT--

Latu Heimuli is back on D for his final go-around and is truly playing inspired football right now after being repeatedly bitten by the injury-bug throughout his career to date!

He's lost some weight and gives us solid depth! My pick for one to have a true breakout-year in '13!

Mesa, AZ

No mention of Andre Lewis at WR?

Also, Ianu only recently surfaced on campus from all indicators, yet looks the part of one who been 100% diligent in showing-up prepared for success in '13!

Why is poutasi holding a rock above his head?

Did he help out on excavating the new football facility too?


wwookie, that's not Poutasi, it's Pouvave. And that's a common exercise for injured players in the "Pit" during practice, so it's about all the practice footage they could have gotten of him at this point.
