    I hope Casey has a fantastic senior year wherever he goes. Been following Casey's career ever since he announced his commitment to the U from Legacy High. A great kid and a great example.

    I will continue to be a fan wherever he ends up.

    Go Utes!

    London: “...he might be looking for a better graduate degree or a better playing opportunity - we'll find out soon enough.”

    Generally, it’s always better to get your graduate degree from from a university different than the one you received your bachelors. However, he’s probably looking for an opportunity for more playing time. Can’t blame him for that. Best of luck Casey.

    MortorBike: Good one! But Seriously Folks: you are showing your extensive football knowledge and acumen.

    Priobally best for Casye. He's a good kid, but he's the odd one out with Jaylen and Julien. Those two, along with Marquise Blair, Hansen and Guidry are NFL talent. Prediticing the best defensive backfield in the Pac12 next year. Hansen should not even consider the NFL this year with his past injuries.

    Good luck Casey. Always a Ute.

    I am always impressed when an athlete, with the tremendous demand on their time, actually graduates with a degree that will help them find solid employment. To graduate early...hats off to you Casey. With another year, and with a fairly wide-open field, I would suggest you find a school that can supplement your educational goals in a big way.

    Wherever you go, best of success. And thanks for the great example.

    But seriously folks!

    "Smart kid. Probably wants to play for a conference that has a shot at a new year's day bowl or a NC."

    I hope you're right, for a minute there I was worried that he might consider BYU.

    But seriously folks!:

    You seriously think that the Pac-12 has no shot at sending a team to a New Year's Day bowl? Not smart. This is why roscoe called you guys "uneducated" ya know!

    He's leaving because his first name doesn't start with a J so he doesn't fit in with the others.

    Casey, on the off chance that you don't have a life like those of us who read comments on sports articles, thanks for the great years you gave to the Utes and best of luck at your next stop. I'm bummed that the Utes are losing you for your senior year but I hope to see you ball out next year regardless.
