More 3 stars recruits with other BCS offers!

Other schools in Utah only wish they were getting such recruits.

And if you think stars don't matter, Nick Saban disagrees with you.

Go Utes!

Can never have too many athletes with speed.

Looks like a beast. Welcome aboard big fella.

Our Pac 12 membership opens up recruiting in a big way.

Some schools are limited mainly to logan and 2 star recruits.

Some schools are limited to church boys and 1-2 star recruits.

Some schools win BCS bowls, EARN invites to a real conference, and are simply better than other schools. These schools have higher average star ratings than other schools.

And yes, stars matter. In a big way.

Its been proven more 5 stars succeed than 4, 4 than 3, 3 than 2, and 2 than 1.

GO Utes!

Nice get for the Utes! This kid looks like a solid QB with great upside and potential. I've been really impressed with QB recruiting at the U the past few seasons. Now it's just the development factor, which is where KWhitt and BJ have fallen short. In any case, this is a great pick-up. Now let's see if U can hold onto this one :)

Bountiful, UT

Sounds like a talented kid. Had an offer from Miami. Not often you see a Louisiana boy pick Utah over an ACC team. Guess he didn't want "Played for Miami" on his police report. We are excited to see what he can do here.

The more and more we recruit OUT of Utah the better.

In today's game, its all about power and speed.

With Utah's demographics, those two things are simply lacking for the most part. The Poly community helps with the power. We should continue to use the Poly Pipeline, but other than that, we need to leave Utah as much as possible for recruiting.

How many slow unathletic church boys do you see Florida, Alabama, USC, Ohio State going after?

Yes, there will always be 2-3 worth going after. However they are the exception.

South Jordan, UT

Welcome to the Ute Nation. We look forward to seeing you compete for a spot and play against top notch talent each week. Onward and upward!

Payson, UT

Welcome to the tribe. Excited to see what you can do in Utah´s system. As a QB in the PAC-12, you will get a lot of exposure nationally from the conference of QBs.

Meh. Call me after he signs a LOI, then maybe I'll get excited. A lot can happen between now and February...to every verbal commit of every school.

Remind us the last time one of your many-starred recruits won a national individual award of any kind.

And he will still get to spend the holidays at home with his family every year. How nice.

IRS Agent

It does make it easier to recruit those out of state players when they know they can go home between semesters and spend the holidays with friends and family. It must surely cut down on the homesickness, and is a great selling point for the football program as well. I guess that makes it a win-win for everyone. However, it does put the other programs in the state at a bit of a disadvantage not having that selling point. I suppose they will just have to make due.

Holladay, UT

He looks huge! wow.

West Jordan, UT

@Chris B

You and the BYU zealots are really no different. You both still claim big victories over things that don't involve actual on field wins. You have to resort to things like recruiting, TV money, etc. Everything except winning actual games.

It's just so sad!

@Little brother,

Still living in the past I see.


I care about Ute football today more than I care about 1984. So does the rest of the world.

I invite you to join the rest of us who left 1984 30 years ago.

Today we own you on the football field.

We're dominating you in recruiting(including with head to head recruits)

We're dominating you in reaching prestigious bowls

And we're dominating in the race to a real conference.

Today you have countless 1 and 2 stars(who aren't winning any individual awards)

We have 3 stars while we're continuing to improve in a very tough conference.

Orem, UT

We can talk when you win a national championship. Or we can talk at the Legends Grill staring at the National Championship Trophy.

Orem, UT

Watched his video. His mechanics are horrible.

Washington, UT

A big stud QB who throws the football like a baseball. Better get the coaches working on his throwing motion, what he's doin now will never cut it in college.

Provo, UT

Good to see you won a recruiting battle with Louisianna Tech and Tulane!
