"I can beat a defense at anytime on offense and on special teams," he said. "I bring a lot of excitement to the field, but I'm also a team player. I can't wait to get to Utah because we're going to get it done. We're going to play with the best in the Pac-12 and beat the best. I believe that."

I can't wait for all the ute "fans" to rip on Jake Hea...errr delshawn mcclellon for those comments.

Who am I kidding, those comments will elicit nothing but praise from ute "fans" in this instance, it is a utah commit afterall.

Speed. Bcs. Undefeated seasons. I wonder y Byu didn't get him.

Re: Chris B.

"Utah has speed, Utah has athletes, BYU doesn't, bleah bleah bleah"

Why bother to think of anything original? Just save that in a word document and copy and paste it in every future post. Even after BYU beats you.

btw, How fast are you?

Chris B,

"I wonder y Byu didn't get him."

Probably because BYU never recruited him...?

Hey, how did recruiting Troy Hinds workout for you?

Duckhunter, here's a Ute fan to prove you right:

Delshawn Mcclellon needs to learn how things are done at the U, that is, talk is cheap and play is everything. However, as Wittingham hasn't even had a chance to coach him yet nor has he had an opportunity to learn the culture at the U, I'm hoping that this is a rookie mistake that he'll soon learn from.

Also, it's great to see the effect on recruiting Norm Chow has already had. Speed Kills.

The obvious difference is that this kid didn't hire a PR guy, call a press conference at a restaurant and talk about having an "epiphany" and winning a NC. And, this kid may actually be a player and do something besides put up numbers against cupcakes.

Did he throw a pic six after saying what he said?

"Gahr has a program without a lot of money coming in. It's located in a rough part of town without even the most basic football facilities such as a locker room."

Pretty sad that we live in the richest country in the world yet we have kids in schools that are underfunded like Gahr.

Welcome Delshawn to the Ute Nation.

And thank you Norm Chow for widening the California recruiting market to Utah football.

It is obvious to everyone but Ducky. He needs help in understanding even the simplest of things.

Green side up Ducky when you lay that sod.

Delshawn said we would compete with and beat the best in the PAC-12. How is that the same as proclaiming an upcoming National Championship / Heisman?

(You'll have to forgive him if by the time he's playing it's a PAC-16.)

Unfortunately I heard that big talk from O' Neal Chambers a number of years ago. He promised touch downs on kick offs and punts and big gains. I am still waiting. I hope this young man can do what he says he can do. One thing these young players need to understand that the cream of the crop is going to college and the PAC-12 teams have defensive players as quick as he is, so his speed will be somewhat negated. It will be his moves and attitude that determine how effective he will be at Utah.

Provo, UT

Poor Duckie and his little buddy Sammy. The're so jealous of where the Utah program is going that it's just killing them. The're so obsessed with the Utes that they almost never miss posting on a ute article!


"Also, it's great to see the effect on recruiting Norm Chow has already had. Speed Kills"

It looks like Norm did a top notch job at UCLA. Hopefully he can have equal success at the University of Utah.

just looked this kid up on youtube. his play style and swagger reminds of me brent casteel. a great addition indeed.

South Jordan, UT

Doesn't matter the speed! How bright is the lights upstairs is what I want to know. I'll take the player that out smarts his opponent, than anyone with a one track mind. Plus BYU did not recruit Him, so who cares!

Murray, UT

Gahr grad from 1974 to bad BYU didn't recruit him, we already have one Gahr player.

The day BYU recruits a kid named "Delshawn" I'll become a byu fan.


Cottonwood Heights, UT

Boy are the folk in blue dissing Delshawn already!

Things must be slow and dull in Provo, as usual,

After Saturday's pathetic offensive showing, they best not be talking smack about Heaps...who needed his defense to beat a bottom of the barrel SEC team playing without its quarterback.

I hope Delshawn is fast enough to rescue me from my mom's basement and take me to a mighty Ute's game.
