Cody Hoffman, Ross Apo and JD Falslev are one, two and three on the list of wide receiver options. Who is the fourth? A unique blend of 10 promising wideouts are currently vying for the final spot in the rotation. Here's a look at each of them.
Mathews is the younger brother of tight end Marcus Mathews and appears to be moving up in the battle for the fourth receiver spot. Mathews brings an uncommon combination of size, speed and quickness to the position, giving him a unique skill set and subsequent advantage.
The youngest of the Collie brothers is definitely a Collie. He came into camp as a true freshman confident and remarkably polished and will be used this season according to offensive coordinator Brandon Doman. In what capacity he'll be used in has yet to be determined.
Houk has an obvious size advantage over most WRs competing for spots and has shown well at times. Speed isn't Houk's strong suit, but route-running and ball skills are. He'll have to rebound from a two-drop performance during Thursday's scrimmage if he hopes to find himself in the rotation.
Kuresa has moved over from the quarterback position and has been a pleasant surprise. Kuresa is being used much in the same way as Falslev and will see playing time this season according to offensive coordinator Brandon Doman.
Ridley isn't one of the more notable names competing for a spot, but he has proved productive during practice sessions. He's a walk-on from Murrieta, Calif.
Thompson is back from his LDS mission service after playing as a true freshman. He got off to a slow start, but has since started making plays during most practice sessions. Thompson was a heavily recruited prospect from El Dorado Hills, Calif.
Smith has a size advantage over most of the WRs competing for spots — and good speed. He's showed well during certain practice situations as a steady possession receiver and decent deep threat.
Henderson has shown well as a walk-on from Snow Canyon High. He has good size and has consistently shown up on the stat sheet throughout the fall practice session.
Raymond lacks standout size and speed, but he has proven productive during most practice sessions. He's a small, gutty performer who simply has a knack for getting open and catching balls. He's a walk-on from Jordan High.
The Alta High product had a slight edge for the fourth spot before injuring his hamstring a few days into fall practices. Cutler is a proven practice performer who is in the same mold as his position coach, Ben Cahoon.
