      With our QB situation up in the air, seems like it would be a terrible gamble unless he knows something about the qb situation that we don’t. If he comes back and the qb can’t throw accurately, he’ll lose a year of NFL play for nothing… just a random thought.

      His NIL check will probably greater than his late round / free agent contract.

      Yeah, and Cam shouldn’t come back either. Who needs ‘em. (TIC)

      Depends.  Is he getting a top 3-4 round draft grade?  If not the draft gets pretty fraught.

      im sure Cam is a major criteria point for Brandt.  I bet we don’t here about Brandt before Cam.

      I personally think he has to.  He is going to have to prove who he is again since the injury.  Otherwise I would agree.  I also think Cam needs to as well.

      I don’t think a new QB will be so bad that Kuithe will not have a good season.  He gets a lot of short passes.  I hope our QB of the future can find Kuithe.

      However, to your point – Kuithe basically told Bill Riley that if Cam stays so would he.

      I have no way of knowing where Kuithe projects to go in the NFL draft.  He is not a typical TE so that may play against him.  I just want things to work out well for him.  He deserves it.

        Jake Bentley didn’t help Kuithe with those short passes.

      The injury he suffered, a torn ACL, has a recovery period of 9-12 months. I know, because I suffered the same injury playing intramural soccer at The U. Based on that, he more than likely wouldn’t even be ready to play by the start of next season, much less take part in any sort of training camps. Yeah, I know it sucks and nothing like this proves true the old axiom of it’s better to do something a year too early than a year too late. Kuithe’s issue is that, if he waits another year, he’ll be closing on 25 before he even plays a down in the NFL. On the other hand, hard to see any NFL drafting him without even having any assurance that he’s recovered from his injury.

        Recovery time depends on severity, how different people react to surgery, and how seriously someone takes rehab.

        I had a grade 3 ACL tear, along with a torn meniscus and MCL, also from soccer. I took rehab seriously, and played a league game 6 months after the date of my surgery. I felt 100% at about 7 months.

          Yeah, well…it also depends on when you had the surgery. Mine was well over 30 years ago and they implanted a ligament from a cadaver to replace my ACL. Besides playing soccer I was also a big-time runner and worked out diligently to recover. I was doing a full slate of physical activities about nine months after the surgery but didn’t feel 100 percent until 15-18 months post-surgery.

            Absolutely. Mine was just 2 years ago, and even though I was 44 at the time of surgery I bounced back quickly. The used a portion of my own hamstring instead of a cadaver, and the largest scar that I have is maybe a quarter of an inch. Huge strides in surgery.

            Kuithe has an advanced medical and rehab team. I’m sure he’ll be 100% in short order.

      Kuithe is going to miss the combine and will still be injured during the draft. I don’t see how he could get drafted. I think he’ll still have an NFL career as long as he is 100% again but a healthy year at Utah would probably be better for him. With what we know now, he probably should’ve gone last year.

      There is also the talk that he would do better in the NFL as a receiver not TE. He may need another year to showcase his talents in that regard.

      Agree with Proud. Kuithe would do just fine with a new QB at Utah if Rising leaves. Kuithe would have solid support at Utah during his rehab and the team would not overload him early in the season allowing him to ease back to game shape as the season goes on.

      Comes down to if Rising still has his heart set on playing college football. A lot of college QBs would kill for his situation, great team, coaching, NIL, supportive community, etc. None of that matters if Rising’s done with playing college football and his heart’s not in it. Plenty of solid people in his camp giving him good advice. All focus now is on the Rose Bowl so doubtful we hear anything until after the game. Of course it would be great to have them all back, 100% support either way. Go Utes!

      You have no idea what’s going on within that team. No need to speculate.
