Wilmore, from Lawndale, California, was considering Utah along with Arizona State and UCLA. He originally committed to USC, but recently had a change of heart.

Now, Wilmore joins a Utah recruiting class that includes a pair of other four-star recruits in offensive linemen Bamidele Olaseni and Sataoa Laumea, according to 247 Sports’ composite rankings.

The 5-foot-8, 200-pound Wilmore was rated the No. 4 all-purpose back in the country by 247 Sports. He rushed for 2,236 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior, according to MaxPreps.
