Utah's quarterbacks are set — what about their receivers?

How the 6-5, 250-pound Reese fits in will be one of the interesting developments for the Utes on offense this fall. Utah has recently lost Dallin Rogers, Kendrick Moeai and David Rolf, now of the San Diego Chargers, at tight end, so it would welcome some immediate help. Reese also has just two years left.

Reese didn't play last year, so he may have only recently found his form. The Camden, N.J., native led Arizona Western to the 2011 junior college national championship game.

McClellon and Fitzgerald should be the primary backups at receiver. McClellon (5-9, 166) is a redshirt freshman whose 4.38 time in the 40 is the second-fastest on the team. He was a three-year starter for Gahr High (California), finishing as the state's third all-time career receiver.

It’s been a long time coming for Fitzgerald, but he may provide veteran leadership the corps needs — particularly in lieu of Pedroza’s dismissal and Shepherd’s absence. Since being named the Mission Viejo High (California) Offensive Player of the Year in 2005, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound senior served an LDS mission and redshirted in 2009. He played in two, six and nine games in 2010, 2011 and 2012, respectively.
