    Chris Utah will still lose 4-6 games every year just like BYU.

    A decent kid, but somebody Rodriguez wasn't upset about losing. He already had his preferred dual threat guy from that class in Anu Solomon out of Bishop Gorman in Vegas and now he can fill another need. A win-win.

    'hateful' post alert...

    Why can't Utah get higher 4-5 star recruits?

    I thought Chris B said they would be lining up?

    IRS Agent,
    Won't you give it a rest, quit posting, quit hating, and making up stuff. Geez! If you don't like Utah than don't come on here or post. Don't be another Ducky or sammyG. You won't see me posting my hate on BYU articles because...I could careless for BYU and I'm not going to waste my time. Unless you are just a troll.

    Welcome to the Utes, Brandon. We are seeing that college and NFL teams are moving toward more athletic QBs. Utah State's and UCLA's wins against Utah came largely as a result of the contributions of their mobile, athletic quarterbacks.

    Can't wait to see what you've got!

    I thought 3-star recruits were below Utah's radar. Now they are considered "incredible athletes". I love the double standard. Give it a rest already.

    I agree with everything you said. This season had been disappointing, but the program had allot going for it right now. Its not just other fan bases, out own needs to calm down and realize this is a process, and we need to be patient. I was one who thought we would storm the pac right off, I was wrong, but it is a process, and it looks like the program is doing it the right way.

    Cox is a great get for Utah football. As we have seen, you can never have too many QB's in your system and it helps that this kid is a real athlete.

    I'm glad to see the Utes inch their way up to and possibly in the top 25 recruiting classes again. They need to improve that score every year if you want to compete in this conference.

    I know there are certain fan bases that don't like to admit it, but the Utes football program has a lot going for it. The football facility will be complete by next season which will be a huge recruiting tool going forward. The Utes still are looking forward to getting their full share of conference money which will help them expand Rice Eccles stadium.

    I have faith and patience that all will translate into wins on the field soon.

    Welcome to the Utah Utes family Brandon.

    Go Utes!

    That moves the Utes up to #39 on Rivals.

    CAUTION: With the Cougars at #45 that means Rivals is no longer a valid reference. Clearly, there is something wrong with Rivals' ranking system.

    Whether he plays QB, receiver, or secondary for Whittingham seems like we got another incredible athlete, and you can never have too many of those.

    Pretty exciting pickup! Great job Whittinghman and Johson. Like the kid says, a few more offensive pieces and we'll be fighting with USC and Oregon. Until then - stay faitful utes and have patience!
