Specialists sought Next List » 5 of 5 « Prev
If cornerback is the biggest position question mark, Whittingham said it’s followed closely by finding a specialist. He noted that the Utes have “complete rebuilds at both spots.”

On special teams, Utah is looking for a new primary kicker, punter, snapper and kick returner.

At kicker, camp opens with redshirt freshman Andy Phillips atop the depth chart. Jamie Sutcliffe and Jon Halliday share the No. 2 spot. Whittingham, however, doesn’t expect the issue to be settled quickly.

Sophomore punter Tom Hackett, who saw specialized duty behind Sean Sellwood last season and earned Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week honors in his first game, is the front-runner at punter.

Freshman Chase Dominguez tops the chart at snapper.

Sophomore safety and punt returner Charles Henderson and freshman receiver Delshawn McClellon are listed as the top candidates to replace All-American Reggie Dunn in returning kickoffs.

joseph smith plays for the Utes huh? Well... Brigham young himself did establish the university of Utah so I guess that makes sense.
