Utah football: Top 10 position battles entering fall camp

After losing its top three corners from last season to graduation, Utah’s cornerback position is completely up in the air this fall. Senior Keith McGill and redshirt freshman Justin Thomas are listed as starters heading into fall, and both players were Utah’s most consistent corners this spring. However, a host of other players, including redshirt freshman Reginald Porter, junior college transfer Davion Orphey, junior Wykie Freeman and true freshman Hipolito Corporan, will push for reps as well.

McGill and Thomas are expected to hang on to the starting spots, but Ute fans should keep a close eye on Freeman, who is Utah’s fastest corner and is finally healthy after missing all of spring football.

Nice write up again Dan.

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!

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.
