Welcome to Utah!
For all of you naysayers telling the Utes will have problems recruiting here
with Coach Chow gone here is the notes on a recent commit signed 5 hours
ago.. " Kevin York held offers from USC, Miami, Mississippi,
and BYU. He stands 5'11" and weighs 225 pounds. York is a bigger back, and
does a nice job of keeping his legs churning. York appears to run in a zone and
man scheme for Fullerton. That should help him in the Pac 12. His speed is
decent for a back of his size.. There aren't a lot of great big backs in
the PAC 12, and York could be a good one for the Utes."
WOW! While "verbals" don't amount to much of anything to me until the
recruit actually signs his LOI in about 6 or 7 wks, if we DO get this kid, this
will be HUGE for Utah! York is 5-11, 225 lbs, runs a 4.4 forty, is rated as a
4-star RB by Rivals, and the #2 JUCO player at his position. This guy is built
like Dameon Hunter, only faster, and comes more highly touted. GO UTES!!!
Naval Vet-York signed TODAY! Today was signing day for Juco
Transfers. This is another early Christmas present for the Utes.Welcome to Utah Kelvin! I can't wait to see you and John White doing your
Thunder and Lightning performance. It's going to be awesome!
Good get for the utes. We will need more than 1 rb. By the way in the pac-12 the
pro style offense doesn't score enough points to win. That said u all are going
to say but what about Usc or Stanford. Well they could both run the spread and
win. We are not going to get thoes types of kids. Personaly I'm not sad to see
Chow go. Are offense stunk this year.
with York and White working together, next year could be very good for the Utes.
Now we just need to teach our quarterbacks to take advantage of these two.
Great pick up by the Utes!! Can't wait to see him play next year and run wild.
nothegame -"Personally I'm not sad to see Chow go. Our offense
stunk this year."_______________Did you actually watch
the games this year or just look at the box scores on Sunday morning?With
the challenges this Ute team faced this year we'd have probably won 3 or 4 games
without Chow. His play calling and coaching of Jon Hays was absolutely critical
and possibly one of the best coaching jobs in Ute history being what they were
faced with.Without Chow we could have lost all Pac 12 credibility in year
1. Instead, we proved we belong.
If his miniscus holds up, this could be a very good recruit. Perhaps this means
that Langi will redshirt, which would be a good idea.
Langi is going to be turned into a LB-speed and size
Should be a great 3rd down and short yardage back. I think that's the best
situation for him to minimize the wear and tear on such a chronic problem like a
meniscus, and with what I've seen of his strength, would suit him very well as
about a 10 carry/game change of pace kind of guy.Portland your
prediction is completely unfounded and unlikely.I'm liking the class
we're putting together and considering we still have about 5 more four and five
star guys that have us on their top five list, could potentially be a great one!
Its great to be a Ute! The Utes have a bright and exciting future!I
can't imagine playing a season without any purpose. PAC 12 Rocks!Go
Motorbike- I couldn't agree more. Chow was a wizard the way he turned lemons
into lemonade this year. I am very sad to see him go so soon.
Excited about this guy! I was relieved to see a recruit commit even though
Chow's resignation had already happened.Sounds like this guy has a
great combination of size and speed. If this guy is as good as he sounds, the
Utes will have a great 1, 2 punch.
Also, I'm failing to see a DN report of it anywhere, but in other local JUCO
signings, former Dixie High linebacker Cade Cowdin, who was a freshman my senior
year at DHS, has just signed to play with Oregon State. Beavers got a good dude,
and hopefully this doesn't end up being a recruiting oversight by the Utes like
Cort Dennison turned out to be. Congrats and good luck to Cade!
@StGorgeIt's not a prediction
Well then you're misinformed, Portland.
DevilishUteWith how pathetic the utes offense is, #110 in the
nation, you would be excited if they signed bieber as an RB.
@ jacker-rasGood one.and yet it was still 54-10, and the
boys in blue quit.
3 blowouts and 17-14Where will the mighty utes be ranked come
seasons end?That "one" game doesn't seem to affect the
voters for the Y though. They will be ranked in the top 25 with a bowl win.
re: joker rusYou are a joke, The Utes won't be ranked and that
doesn't change the score of 54-10. The voters don't watch the games and if they
did they would realize you had 1 win against a team with a winning record. If
you really want to beat your chest for having 1 win against a team that would be
considered good and that team just lost to Ohio in a bowl game. 1 win vs a team
with a winning record go away and enjoy the "wac/independence".
jokes-r-us:An outsider who's never seen the team play might think we
would be happy with that. Anyone who's watched John White take the offense on
his back the season and become one of the nation's top ten rushers would be
either optimistic or scared about adding one of the nation's most sought-after
offensive weapons from JC, depending on which side you're behind. It's obvious
to see how you feel about it.
Wow! I am excited Kelvin York chose Utah. Hopefully Utah can get more recruits
on Christmas day and a handful between now and national signing day! I also
hope coach Whitt finds a diamond of an OC. Get the Utes offense back on track.
Matter of a year or two before Utah can truly be a real threat and compete for
the South division title and PAC-12 championship! Like coach Whitt said, find
an OC that can devise plays and schemes tailored to the strengthens of the
players. I believe that can only help the Utes be more successful as a team.
Go UTES! Merry Christmas! God bless!
