Seriously...why would he want to go to Utah with the state their program is in right now?

Take the emotion out of it and it is a no brainer. Better school. Top 10 Program. Better upside. Unfortunately, until Utah can be a top tier elite team, they will continue to lose the recruits elsewhere in the PAC.

Good luck Mr Shultz.

Narrowed his list down to Stanford, Utah, and Notre Dame, eliminating lesser programs much earlier in the process.

Hard to argue with his decision.

Welcome to the Pac 12!

We'll be cheering for you, except when we play(and beat) your Stanford team!

At least Utah was in the final 2...your was never even truly in the picture.

I would never fault anyone for choosing a Stanford education, even if it means Utah loses a quality football player. Congrats and best wishes, Dalton.

Choosing Stanford over Utah is a no-brainer.

Hmmm... Stanford or Utah.....good choice!

Choosing between Stanford and Utah is like trying to decide what job offer to take between flipping patties at Dairy Queen or be the CEO of a Fortune 500. Hmmm...

Don't sell Stanford short, it's actually a pretty good school.

I guess playing for three offensive coordinators didn't seem that intriguing. That's weird.

The Utes let a good one get away. Welcome to the Pac-12, young man...it will be fun to watch you play! Best of luck at Stanford and we'll see you when you visit RES in two years!

And the BYU fans say Utah fans are bitter and always on the boards about BYU articles. Here is a great article about a great young man, who now has a chance to play and get an education at Stanford. What part of this article was about BYU? Congratulations on a truly great accomplishment. Good luck at Stanford.
Go Utes!

BYU used to be one of the top programs for tight ends ... until last few years when they don't use them that much. Even with Anae's offense, tight ends are rarely, if ever, used, and yet they prove very effective in BYU wins. So blame Bronco and Anae for letting Dalton get away, especially in letting Hill run instead of passing.

Disappointed but I wish him well, Stanford is a great school.

Utah still has commits from 3 of the top 5 in state recruits accordingly to rivals.

Nor playing with the next Steve Young down south. Wait you guys were never in the discussion, that's weird for a legacy program with a national brand.


As a BYU fan Im kinda glad he didn't choose to go there simply because BYU doesn't utilize their TE's like they use to. Stanford is a great fit for this kid, I'm excited to see him play.


BYU never really had a chance with Dalton. Dalton is not a Mormon and I don't think anyone expected him to even look there.

not from utah, 00

wow...a nice article about a nice young man and all anyone can do is "slam" the other side? No wonder our world is in a mess. Is this a 1st world issue?

Let's raise the level of our discussions folks.

Good luck Dalton!

Dalton is a) a die-hard Ute fan and b) not Mormon. The probability is pretty high that his decision to ignore BYU has nothing to do with the program. Doesn't seem weird to me at all.

Big 12 Call Yet? said "Narrowed his list down to Stanford, Utah, and Notre Dame, eliminating lesser programs much earlier in the process." Yeah... lesser programs like Oklahoma, USC, Nebraska, Wisconsin etc (Sarcasm). You Ute fans are silly. Utah was only in his top two because he grew up a Ute fan. He wanted Stanford all along but wanted to be nice to the school he grew up cheering for. BYU was not considered for two reasons 1. He grew up a Ute fan and thus probably has an irrational hatred for BYU, and 2. Honestly, BYU has been doing a horrible job at utilizing their tight ends recently. As a BYU fan, I admit that a top tight end would be correct to steer clear of BYU at the moment unless they are a lifelong BYU fan or think they are good enough to force Anae to utilize them more. I hope BYU can turn that around soon. Anyway, good luck to this kid at Stanford. He made an excellent decision.

".......Utah was only in his top two because he grew up a Ute fan."

Wait a minute. Some BYU fans claim that no one grows up wanting to play for Utah. Something has to give.

As a life long Ute, this is a no brainer. Football aside, you go to Stanford if you can afford it. Utes will lose this battle most times with most kids just as BYU will lose most kids to Utah if given a choice. Better school, better football program means more quality athletes. Good luck Dalton!
