    Whittingham is such a genius at changing guys positions that there can be no doubt Sanders-Williams will now get drafted into the NFL. Probably a first rounder.

    “They just came to me and told me they needed me and I was like, ‘Hey, if you need me, whatever I have to do for the team, I’ll do it,’" Sanders-Williams said. “If I have to move from running back to linebacker, I’m going to do it and that was it.’’

    Refreshing to see an eager player step up and do what's necessary for the team, and in the process go from fourth-string offense to first-string defense! Sanders-Williams, thanks for playing hungry and making your team better! Go Sanders-Williams! Go Utes!

    Two years ago, Utah had two three two-star recruits. (All others were 3 or more stars) Andrew Albers, Chase Dominguez, and Marcus Williams. Andrew is in the mix for playing time on the line. Chase is a "long snapper" rated one of the highest in the country for that function. And Marcus won the Long Beach Nike SPARQ competition of over 1000 competitors and his score ranked very high nationally.
    Lesson: Not all two stars recruits are created equal!

    Sanders is a very athletic player, and would really add to the LB corp if he can learn the position.

    It is food to hear that he has made a good first impression, and I hope he can become a rotation player at LB this fall. He is someone I'd really like to see on the field.

    Go Utes!
