    Utah successfull out competed Incarnate Word, New Mexico State and no less than two service academies for this OLB!

    Faloona is currently ranked as a mid-three star linebacker in 247Sports own rankings. He holds scholarship offers from programs like Air Force, Navy, and Utah State while also hearing from other schools like SMU, Wyoming, and Nevada.

    At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, Faloona sports a good, long frame with the potential to add a good amount of mass while maintaining his athleticism. That added muscle will be crucial for him as well, as it will help him become a bit more explosive. He has the makings of a player that will see increased interest during his senior season, particularly playing at the 6A level in Texas football.

    Faloona joins the program as a linebacker, in the mold of former Ute, Cody Barton. A football player through and through, he brings quite a bit of toughness and nastiness to the field.

    Whitt has proven at this point that stars do not matter. If Utah offers them, they must have the potential to be a great pac-12 player.

      Not sure I understand the logic…

      so is kwhitt passing on 4 and 5 star players?  Or is it just bad luck that the “talent” he’s going after dont happen to be 4-5 star?

      It’s fine to champion the “stars don’t matter” but it doesn’t answer the concerns why kwhitt can’t attract  4 star high school players on a consistent basis. Does kwhitt have more interest in “unknowns” then 4-5 star players?  or has he just become frustrated and given up. 

      Also, we can throw the “long game” recruiting strategy approach out the window.  This kid was being courted by Utah State and the Utes pull the trigger in June?  lol.

      Panic time.

          This was intended for Whitless. Sorry, his schtick is just bad.

      Stars do matter, however you are correct, the Utah coaching staff is VERY good at finding under-rated talent, and developing kids.

      I would hope we pull at least a couple of 4* players in this class. :/

    2012 0.8388
    2011 0.8555
    2010 0.8605

    I consulted with Excel, and it referred to those numbers as something called an “upward trend” whatever that is…

    Panic we shall not!
