The state of Utah has produced top-flight football recruits most years, but perhaps never like it will for next year's coming class. It's only early June and there's already several prospects holding multiple offers from top FBS programs and with the offers the designation of a "national recruit."

Producing national-level recruits isn't abnormal for the state, but the amount of national recruits at this still early stage of the process this year is extraordinary.

So who are the state's top recruits and what schools have offered them and where are they leaning? Brandon Gurney got together with Utezone.com's Dan Sorensen to put together a list of the state's top football prospects.

Recruits were evaluated based on offers received, conversations with coaches and other experts, and through film and first-hand evaluations. The list is tenuous because other top prospects usually come forward following June's intense camp period.

  • Oldest first
  • Newest first
  • Most recommended
Omaha, NE

So... there are a lot of committed players in this "uncommitted" list.

West Jordan, UT

Colorado? Who signs with Colorado given a choice?

Provo, UT

@Maverick They are in the pac-12, so I'm surprised more people don't sign there. I keep hearing a lot about how great the pac-12 is, so I thought everyone would try and go there. Rivalry aside, I hope all these kids have success wherever they choose to go or not go.

St George, UT

A kicker was ranked above Gabe Sewell and Barton? This list and the decisions made by the sports writers of the Deseret News just baffles me!!


"we keep hearing how good the pac 12 is?" We all have our own opinion and analysis but I don't think you have to keep hearing. I think the record against out of conference opponents and just plain watching games on saturday is proof enough LOL. some byu fans, really??? do you only watch byu tv on saturday?
