On the recruiting front, Utah was supposed to have several very highly rated recruits at this game. Naijiel Hale, a 4 star CB soft Arizona commit; Jordan Lasley, a soft UCLA commit WR; DeMarlon Morris, a JUCO CB who looked like a lock to Wisconsin a few weeks ago; Darren Gardenhire, a soft verbal commit safety to San Jose State who has seen his recruiting stock rise quickly lately; and Dacorius Law, a Miami RB with offers from Ohio State, Michigan State and a few other B1G and SEC teams. Attending this kind of game has to be a big positive experience to add to their Utah visit!

Love skiing, his highlight film looks like a Bubba Poole clone. ESPN has him as a 4 star and Utah's highest-rated commit by them (their Jackson Barton rating is curious). It should be interesting to see what rating Rivals gives him, and interesting that they haven't already rated him.

Love the news about recruiting.

It's amazing so many people try and argue such a simple concept:

On AVERAGE recruiting services get it right. Higher ranked star players are typically better than lower star players.

Our Mwc days we averaged low 2 star teams. We are at 3.0 last 4 years.

Also last 4 year we beat byu and usu hea to head and higher stars EVERY year.

And yes, that has a lot to do with our dominance on the field against them

The higher the stars the better

Love it!
