      Marquise Blair…another really nice get for the Utes.  Talent just keeps improving up on the hill.

        I know we had some “great talent” in the defensive backfield this year, but we sure got burned deep a lot. I hope we can address that next season with some improving talent and better coaching.

          Yeah perhaps the perceived weakness at LB this past year helped give hope to some highly rated LB’s, like this one, that they’d see plenty of PT even as a newcomer.

      It looks like he might be more of a safety, and that could allow Chase to move to LB. A LB/Safety combo of Hansen and Blair would make for some very interesting blitz packages, and against pass happy offenses it would be beneficial to have somebody as athletic as Hansen playing LB.

      It will be interesting to see how we fit the pieces together on defense, but we sure are getting some big defensive recruits this year.

        How many pounds can Chase put on, and if he does can he be as fast an athletic?  He’s a bit small to be a pure linebacker at the moment.

          Not sure if you noticed but chase essentially played as an LB a good part of last season. It’s a hybrid S/LB spot that Morgan loves. I’m guessing blair will play a similar role

            I noticed.  I just don’t think he has the size or physical endurance to be a full time linebacker, yet.

              I think that Hansen could put on about 10 lbs if he moves to linebacker, but even if he doesn’t put on weight they could just use an undersized package that utilizes him and Blair against pass happy teams since Hansen is so good at covering the slot position.

      Utah has recruited him as a safety.

      Nice to consistently get legit linebacker recruits the past few years. That has always been a weak spot of ours, and if we can make it solid year in and year out, then watch out.
