Very interesting…watch Utah trying to compete with USC. If offered by Sark I know I would be off to the sunny shores of So. Cal. Utah has a nice little PAC 12 program going….right Chris?

" If offered by Sark I know I would be off ..." There are those who would do the same as you say you would. But those that would do so are:
1. Giving up playing in front of family and friends.
2. Thinking they can win playing time from the four and five stars that the name of USC often attracts.
3. Yahoo Sports ranked colleges by the number of games started in the 2013 season. Utah ranked third in the PAC-12! USC was first, Cal was second (and you know the status of their program now). In fact , Yahoo ranking players since 2009 has 90 starts as compared to Sarks success at Washington with 68! (Speaks volumes for Utah’s coaching staff!)
4 Attending a school located in one of the poorer parts of LA compared with the campus of Utah located in one of the more desirable cities for quality of life in America.

Fortunately, these advantages are not lost on all recruits... but obviously someone from Arizona would choose LA.

Seems to me, Tinplater, that you are a BYU fan...Oh, yeah. A little jealousy there, eh amigo? I went to both schools, so for me, it's win, win.

@ John Locke,
Nope, I'm a USU and ASU fan. Just feel Utah has a recruiting disadvantage compared to USC, UCLA, ASU, Stanford, Oregon, Cal and Washington. I see the Utes on equal footing with Colorado, Washington State, Oregon State. Just my take if I could play ball, where I would like to go if offered. Utah can prove me wrong by winning more than 4 games in conference this year and taking some recruits away from the premier Pac 12 teams.
@ Whom am I sir, your argument about playing in front of family plays both ways…kids in California may want to stay there and play for that reason. And there are a lot more talented players in California than Utah.

Funny? The reason Gustin did not participate is obviously due to the fractured left wrist. Which is also the reason he was only able to participate in three of the four SPARQ testing events the previous day in order to qualify for The Opening. He is currently unable to throw the 6 pound power ball and participate in full contact activities. I highly doubt that he was "afraid" to see where he "stacked up" at the All Poly Camp. it does appear that against doctors orders he opted to compete in the full SPARQ test at The Opening and recorded a 130.44 score. Not bad considering it was his first ever complete SPARQ test and landed him in the top 10 of the whole camp despite having a broken hand. According to Coach Higginson, Gustin is hoping to get clearance on the 31st of July and then be able to participate in full contact activities with his team. Until then, expect to see him on the sideline anxiously waiting.
