Utah football: Top 10 position battles entering fall camp

After a solid spring, sophomore Travis Wilson looks to have strengthened his hold on the starting spot, but the battle for the No. 2 spot looks to be competitive. Sophomore Adam Schultz has the biggest arm on the team and made strides this spring. However, Schultz will be pushed by true freshman Brandon Cox, who was among the most pleasant surprises of spring football before his camp was cut short by an injury.

True freshmen Conner Manning and Micah Thomas are also looking to be in the mix. Both participated in summer conditioning and will compete for the job but will have to impress to overcome Schultz and Cox.

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.
