Utah football coach Kyle Whittingham looks on during the first half of game against Washington State in Pullman, Wash. The Utes locked up 12 players after the first day or the early signing period on Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018.

Ute Insiders Dirk Facer, Mike Sorensen and Brad Rock take a look at this year’s early Utah football commits. Is there a ringer in the bunch? They also discuss what’s ailing the Utah men’s basketball team and the early success of the undefeated Utah women’s team. Utah athletic director Mark Harlan talks about a variety of topics in an extensive interview, and deputy athletic director Kyle Brennan discusses his son, Mac, and how the U. athletic department helped him through his battle with leukemia. That and more on this week’s episode.
