SALT LAKE CITY — Offensive coordinator Troy Taylor was impressed with quarterbacks Troy Williams, Tyler Huntley and Cooper Bateman on Thursday, declining to say if there was any separation in the battle for the top two spots.

"They all played great," Taylor said. "I thought they all played really well."

Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham noted all three continue to get reps and there is no cut-off date as to limiting significant reps to two quarterbacks rather than three.

"But its got to be sooner rather than later," Whittingham said.

However, with camp starting a week earlier, the Utes are ahead of schedule. As such, they plan to continue giving the quarterbacks a good look until Taylor decides which one will be the No. 3 guy.

EXTRA POINTS: Whittingham said that defensive end Caleb Repp has been slowed by a hand injury. Its nothing significant and the sophomore is expected to be back at full strength next week ... Kickers Cristian Antezana, Hayes Hicken and Chained Johnston continue to be on equal footing with nobody ahead of the other according to Whittingham ... Senior tight end Harrison Handley is the leading candidate to be both the long and short snapper.
