The University of Utah football team has always had great depth when it comes to the wide receiver position — great route runners who seemingly caught every ball that was thrown their way. Wide-outs with great speed and athleticism who made more than their fair share of defensive backs look foolish have been anything but rare at Utah.

This is the list of the best of the best wide receivers on the hill over the last 35 years, no matter how they got it done.

Note: Only what a player did on the field as a Ute was taken into consideration. Their junior college and NFL statistics were not a factor when ranking each player. Each player’s stats also include bowl games.
