    Huntley, Paulo, Fotu, Anae and Lennon. No surprises really. Good captains.

    hmmm, no Moss? 

  • Charlie

    60 in 60

    No doubt, this is a goofy list.  But there are 10 spots left.  There are 9 Utah starters, Wilson and Love not on the list.  Who gets left out?  DHC is also not on the list which is odd given the many random others on the list.  I think PK and DJ likely don’t even know all the starters on Utah’s defense.  Since they probably looked up past Pac all-conference teams, I expect that they don’t know who Burgess and Lewis are.  Maybe I missed  something.

  • UtemanUtefan

    Love will be #1 or #2 with Moss taking the other spot. Anae and Fotu 3 and/or 4.  But bet your dollar that at least 1 more byu guys end up top 10 with wilson.

    • cwatkins02
      1 1

      Moss, Huntley, Covey, Johnson, Anae, Fotu, Blackmon, Wilson, Love and Woodward will be your remaining players. Not in that order…

      • ironman1315

        Top 3 are Johnson moss and fotu.

        • If JJ isn’t one they lack credibility.  Which infers they had any to begin with so more like they lack a brain.

            JJ is the best player to ever play at Utah – yea I said it.

  • Charlie

    Two will be left off the list that are better than 40 – 50 that are on the list.

  • Grimmetal

    Wilson will be a top 2. I’m calling that now.

    • gothamute

      100%. Wilson will be #2, Moss #1. Love #3.

  • Congratulations!

    Is this an attempt to make fun of a player getting a scholarship? Geezus dude…

    • This is a fitting reward for hard work and dedication. Great to see the effort from all of our players!

    Walk on’s are the embodiment of Utah’s blue collar work hard respect the process player development commitment ethos. It’s not about not finding players. It’s about finding guys who want it and will keep the high level records honest be out working them.

    The creativity shown in the scholie awards is fun.  The player reactions reveal our strong culture.  Malik Haynes, Ali’i Niumalatolo… who’s next?  LOVE IT ! ! !

    Yeah but how does Moss’ hand look in this one? 😉

    Starting OLine guards are Freshman, kinda

    Johnny Maea is a return missionary, and probably older than Braeden Daniels. Daniels played in two games last year and was able to Redshirt. Ford is a sophomore, Umana a Junior and Paulo the lone senior, so it is a very young line.
    Current starters per K-Whitt:
    LT Darrin Paulo 6’5 315 lbs Sr https://utahutes.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=9064
    LG Johnny Maea 6‘4 302 lbs Fr https://utahutes.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=9114
    C Orlando Umana 6’4” 340 lbs JR https://utahutes.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=9091
    RG Braeden Daniels 6’4 300 lbs Fr https://utahutes.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=9000
    RG Nick Ford 6’5 324 lbs So https://utahutes.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=9011

    Got a kick out of Nick Ford bio, a pretty well rounded kid. “PERSONAL: Enjoys piano, guitar, science, surfing and horseback riding … heritage includes black Portuguese and native American … son of Michael and Maria Ford … father played wide receiver for California from 1986-89 … two brothers and one sister … older brother’s heart condition inspired him to take up football … psychology major … full name is Nicolas Ford.”

    This really says alot about Johnny Maea.  He was locked in a duel with Paul Toala, who has PAC experience.  I hope Toala takes the challenge and becomes one of the Top 8.

  • eyesonU

    So if and when Bam gets up and running, who would he repalce?  I’m thinking Ford slides inside and it would be Daniels or Maea that get bumped.  Leaving Paulo and Bam at the tackles.

    Moss’ hand in scholarship video

    Utah twitter posted another scholarship video and you can see moss in the first row…he’s got a pretty big hard cast on his hand. Looked big for just a finger or two.

    Hopefully they’re just beIng extra cautIous!

    As an aside, I love coach whit in this video: “Malik, you think that you’re a badass now that you’re on full scholarship?” 😂

      Someone needs to send the missionaries over to give him a blessing ASAP

        Yeah…cuz that has such a great track record.

  • rbmw263

    My guess is that Moss has a broken hand, and that hes going to play anyway and be fine. Im worried about teams going after it, esp that desperate team in week 1.

    • whitlessham

      zoob players will go after his hand like maggots to an open wound

  • Utah5410

    ONLYU- Based on what we all saw with Moss. Where is he at ? Is he going to be ok for the BYU game ?

    • Whitt doesn’t comment on none season ending injuries. Don’t expect OnlyU to say anything about Moss.

  • PNWUte29

    If you notice his fingers are also part of the cast which equates to those being fractured more so than the hand itself. Fingers take about 3 weeks to heal. So hopefully he’ll be back by BYU. If it’s a hand though, those can take 8ish weeks but he won’t be wearing the cast for the full duration.
