    I’d almost expect him to go the JC route vs. decommiting and only if he can’t get the classroom stuff squared away.

    In other news David Fotu, Leki’s younger brother, has gotten the ACT score he needed to become eligible and will join immediately. Harding, Fred and Sione are all fighting over where he’ll end up but another massive athlete that wi…[Read more]

    Still a committed Ute but has to get his academics squared away. Eligible to play HS basketball (and played football) so you can surmise he either doesn’t have the test score (yet) or is missing “core” credit(s) to get through the clearing house. I don’t expect him to decommit especially with Rising in the fold (Another SoCal kid). I still e…[Read more]

    Punchers chance for sure…similar to Maxs a few years back. The longer this goes the better our chances are to steal him. He’s getting hit constantly by the best in the country…not just Washington. We’ve got a good story to tell…50/50 IMO

  • Onlyu replied to the topic 2019 recruiting class in the forum Football 2 weeks, 3 days ago

    Should get Pepa tomorrow (us or Wisc…mom wants him here) and Jones eventually…Add Rising and Bowen!!! Sheesh! Go Utes!!

  • Most of you complain about the OC turnover but then want a guy that will leave the first chance he gets…1-2 years max. 
    Ludwig has been hired by Cal, K-State (never coached there), Vandy and Wisconsin since he left here…all as an OC.  I don’t mind 10 years of division 1 play calling experience.  Is he a guy that moves the needle with…[Read more]

    Love Rex Jordan…has a chance to be really good but a lis franc can be tricky. If he gets back and stays healthy he’ll be in the mix for sure. You’re already 3 deep with big time experience there as it is though. Anae, Tupai, and Tufua so it will be interesting to see how and where he fits in.

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Utah’s 2019 Recruiting in the forum Football 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    I think we’re in pretty good shape with the O-line honestly. We lose 3 quality guys but have more real depth than ever and plenty of game experience. Some young kids but big and very talented. If they develop as expected we’ve got some massive size up there. The great thing is they’ll have 8-10 guys in the mix so that group will have to fight…[Read more]

    Maybe take a look at the class like this…

    Rex Jordan, Malone Mataele, RJ Hubert, Terrell Perriman, Bryant Pirtle, Sione Lund, Andrew Mata’afa, Braeden Daniels, Paul Maile, Blake Kuithe, Jackson Cravens, Manny Bowen, Donte Banton, Micah Bernard, Semisi Lauaki, Falcon Kaumatule, Sataoa Laumea, Ben Lennon, Aaron Lowe, Johnny Maea, LaCarea P…[Read more]

  • If it’s Harding you’ll also see a passing game coordinator hired. Harding is a proven O-Line coach, proven talent developer, proven run game coordinator and proven recruiter. Not a proven OC. That said, I’m not sure Harding is the right guy. You’re absolutely correct in the assumption that he might feel slighted and leave…we’ll see.

  • Still don’t expect Tyler or Chase to play. Possible I guess but not likely. I think Taylor will throw the kitchen sink at them tomorrow. Zero pressure on that guy to perform. Could see some craziness. Been a great week…good vibes, great weather and a ton of work for the young guys which is pretty much the whole roster. Holiday bowl was h…[Read more]

  • Came down to Duke or Indiana…told his roommates he didn’t like his visit to Indiana so this is kind of interesting.  Sounds like the best chance to play early.

  • uf8fl started the topic Taylor in the Football forum. 2 months, 1 week ago

    While I’m surprised based on the money you guys pointed out last week I’m not at all surprised he took a head job.  He has a tough time being told what to do and if you ever had the chance to listen to him on the headset during a game it would be better than watching the game itself.

    I’d be surprised if Anae and Moss returned…completely dependent upon their draft grades.  Both would like to go if it makes sense.  On the flip side, I’d be surprised if Blackmon or Fotu left.  Leki and his family (brothers played at Illinois and AZ) believe he could be a 1st rounder if he came back…I think he stays.  Blackmon didn’t have the…[Read more]

    Ewwww…they’d have to double that for it to make sense.  Looks like I over estimated an FCS gig!!  

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Big picture in the forum Football 2 months, 1 week ago

    He’s from NoCal so is comfortable there over EW…not sure that the HC was an option for him at the time either.  Still had to prove himself.  But you’re right if they can’t pay him closer to upper 3’s or low 4’s it doesn’t make sense.  

  • Onlyu replied to the topic Big picture in the forum Football 2 months, 1 week ago

    Agreed…staff attrition is commonplace in college football. Top 20 programs have their coaches poached every year. Not a terrible thing…new blood and new vision often helps culture.

    Big picture is Whit’s career is winding down. Anywhere from tomorrow to 2025 we’re going to have a new HC with multiple staff changes. Could it be someone wit…[Read more]

  • Every assistant coach in America wants to be elevated. They want the status of an increased title or responsibility, they want increased income for themselves/family or they want an improved locale just like any of the rest of us. Coach Ena is fairly young in coaching and wants to climb the ladder. Great for him and his family…increased…[Read more]

  • Good point.  Not like he’s old and out of shape though.  3-4 weeks is plenty to get into quarterback shape!  I expect he’ll get there.
