    The future of Ute football is bright! 2 coaches that each have top 2 final national rankings. Improving recruiting classes since joining the Pac 12.

    As we saw with USC crumbling last year, you have to have both the talent and the coaching to win championships. We're getting the talent little by little. The coaching is already here.

    This year any team in the South can win the division, except for Colorado probably. Its an open race and we'll be right there.

    This kid looks like he has the potential to be very good for us. He appears to be 1 of those guys that commits before a lot of other schools have gotten on him. A potential diamond in the rough. When I see that size, frame, and athletic build along with those long arms he has OT written all over him. Also the build to add on another 30 pounds of muscle without sacrificing speed and quickness.

    Good get UTES!

    Then how do you explain Utah losing to UNLV(2-10) and Colorado(3-10)?

    Looks like Frison's high school coach recruited him to Utah.

    I wonder why Whittingham didn't wait until the stars were placed next to Kenyon's name before offering him? ;-)

    Commenting on a lower star rated player who committed to BYU.

    Chris B - "Its just not the approach Nick Saban, Les Miles, Mack Brown, Chris Peterson, Kyle Whittingham, and other coaches with BCS bowl wins take."

    And now with a zero star player committing to Utah, U have have the talent to win the Championship?

    I just don't get it.

    Chris B - "This year any team in the South can win the division, except for Colorado probably. Its an open race and we'll be right there."

    This is in the same thought process as BYU fans who think we'll win a NC next year. Too many loses on the D Line, inexperienced QB, new RB; and quite frankly an up and coming Arizona and UCLA team. Besides USC has a better reruiting class, so that means they win, right?

    Good to see you start the season with your sights set on the Rose Bowl Chris, just like last year. Let us know how you feel after the the Stanford and Oregon games.

    "The coaching is already here."

    Would that be the same "coaching" that put all their eggs in the Jordan Wynn basket 2 consecutive years with no thought of a backup plan and no viable provisions for depth at the most important position on the team?

    This will surely be a year you'll want to win your September bowl game. I presume that's the only "bowl" you'll participate in again this year.

    Attention clueless byu fans

    I am fine with any coach finding a few players who flew under the radar and weren't heavily recruited.

    The differnece is that byu can essentially only get 2 star nobodies.

    A team with an average high star ranking and a few 0 star "under the radar guys" is

    COMPLETELY

    DIFFERENT

    than a team with a low star ranking average and a few 3 stars

    LOL!

    You BYU fans are going to start claiming to have equal talent to Alabama if Nick Saban finds an under the radar 0 star guy and offers him!

    For those of you who don't know any better - Rivals has very few people rated right now. Only the top 250 (Jackson Barton #62). Everyone after that has no star - yet. All this talk coming from Utah-obsessed fans whose own team had 7 commits with NO ranking at all by ESPN on signing day, and 8 two stars (half the signing class!). I would hope that you would take your - way too early - star smack and point it at your own coaches who seem to aim for the bottom of the barrel lately.

    BTW - 24/7, who have a lot more players ranked, shows Utah with 2 4 stars already and 1 3 star. The whY - 1 3 star, 1 2 star and 2 not ranked. Tsk Tsk

    These Utah stories are like a big bowl of warm milk - it attracts all the little kitties!!

    Yet, delusional christy claims that any team in the South can win the division. Its an open race and the Utes will be right there.

    LOL at the total disconnect Utah fans have with recruiting.

    A slight edge for Utah over BYU in recruiting, and Utah fans boast about having a monumental edge on the field.

    A monumental edge by most of the PAC 10.2 over Utah, and our delusional friends on the hill think that the Utes are going to be "right there" with the rest of the big boys.

    Gotta laugh at the delusional inconsistency.

    Kinda hard for a kid who just recently started playing high school football to be rated by recruiting services before his junior year is even done. With his size and athleticism, there's a lot of upside, and the fact that he didn't spend 5 or 6 years already beating his body up on the football field could end up being a positive for him. Most likely very raw talent, so let's hope he spends the offseason and coming year developing his game. Congratulations, Kenyon, best of luck.

    "A team with an average high star ranking..."

    I see that another Utah blog has turned into spin city.

    5- and 4-stars are HIGH star rankings, 3-stars is not; so you must be talking about UCLA and USC, because the Utes don't come close to having an average HIGH star ranking.

    While the Utes are busy beating their chests about Utah's slightly better-than-BYU recruits, the rest of the PAC 10.2 is chuckling to themselves wondering just how clueless these new comers from the hill really are.

    RE @ Troytown. . . VegasUte at least understands the system. Stars have not been awarded to players yet. 247Sports is the only site w/ an early attempt to award starts. (two 4 stars and 1 three so far)

    Wait until December and then check out which players have how many stars, both for BYU and Utah, and you'll be in a better position to make comments. Remember a closed mouth gathers no foot.

    Utealmost said:

    "A slight edge for Utah over BYU in recruiting", Utah's class was ranked #43, as opposed to BYU's #70. That would be like saying South Carolina (#16), had a slight edge over Utah. At least be accurate and honest. Then again, why start now?

    It's pretty early in the recruiting zseason, but a couple of items are a given: Utah will out recruit BYU; again. Utah will beat them on the playing field: again!

    christy

    So if UCLA, USC, Arizona and ASU ALL finished ahead of Utah in the PAC 10.2 last season, and ALL of them had BETTER recruiting classes than U, how, exactly did U "improve" so you think you're "right there" with the rest of the PAC South?

    UCLA, the top team in the PAC South in 2011 and 2012, signed SEVENTEEN 4-star recruits, to only ONE for Utah. If the "star" system is even close to accurate, the Utes don't have a prayer of beating the Bruins.

    It's laughable that the Utes think that by hiring the guy that Arizona State FIRED two years ago, that was suddenly going to make the Utes a player in the PAC South. Didn't U already try that a couple of years ago? How'd that one work out?

    They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results.

    If no stars have been awarded, how did Whittingham know that Frison was any good?

    What difference does it make how many stars both BYU and Utah have in December - Utah will only play BYU TWICE, in the next FOUR years? Utah will play at least 36 PAC 10.2 games during the same time period.

    If stars are so important, how does Utah ever expect to compete in the PAC 10.2.

    The Utes will NEVER out recruit USC and UCLA, and will only rarely out recruit ASU, Arizona and Colorado (as soon as Colorado turns their program around)?

    Utah has played all of those schools very, very close recently; and beat Arizona the year before last. Obviously, there's a lot more to winning then recruiting. The Utes will be back, one season doesn't discount what they have done the last 10.

    It's funny how you want to count Utah's close losses to unranked teams, but you completely dismissed BYU's close losses to ranked teams during the 2012 season.

    A little consistency would be appreciated.

    Losing to teams "closely" still isn't winning.

    Utah has had some success during the last 10 years, but the Utes have been in steady decline since their peak in 2008.

    UCLA is much improved from a couple of years ago and just got MUCH stronger.

    You have really hit the nail on the head. The lowly opinion of the Utes by obsessed BYU fans is of little consequence due to the fact the Y has been dominated on the field. I freely admit the Utes severely under achieved last year but if you take the "logic" of byu fans and the Utes are in such poor shape the Y must be flat awful.

    BYU fans aren't busting your chops about stars; BYU fans are laughing at U for being so obsessed with stars.

    Here's a reality check:

    UCLA BEAT U at RES in 2012.

    UCLA signed SEVENTEEN 4-star recruits; Utah signed ONE!

    If stars are as meaningful as U claim they are, then Utah will NEVER have a chance of beating the Bruins.

    If, despite the stars, you claim U do have a decent chance of beating UCLA, then stars aren't nearly as meaningful as you pretend they are.

    Either way, it's great fun casting stars bait, and then watching our little brothers go into a feeding frenzy.

    Utah already HAD! Your big brother out-recruited the Bruins back in 2011. We certainly will need to step up our recruiting to stay competitive with our league members, but to say "never" is just a jealous anguished jab. It might "feel" good to say, but sadly for you, it was a fail.

    For what it's worth, I'm not sure why our little brother is so interested in Utah's ability to keep up with the rest of the Pac-12, since the Pac-12 has nothing to do with you. You weren't wanted. "Pac-12 recruiting" is Utah's problem. Not yours. Your problem is keeping YOUR recruiting competitive with the mid-majors like Toledo, Southern Miss, and all the Louisiana schools not-named LSU.

    What a frantic and emotional "feel good" thing to say. Too bad for you it isn't true. UCLA edged the Utes at the Rose Bowl (21-14) in 2012. At RES, your "Norm Chow-led" big brother dominated them 31-6 (2011). And 44-6 (2007). UCLA hadn't beaten the Utes in SLC since 1974.

    "Either way, it's great fun casting stars bait, and then watching our little brothers go into a feeding frenzy."

    Is it? I remember back in 2009-10 - before you dropped down to play WAC football - when you guys thought you were finally going to out-recruit your big bro with your 4-star talents named Heaps and Ross. Back then, stars mattered to our Indy-WACey little brother. But as soon as you dropped out of the MWC, and joined ranks with the WAC, and your recruiting pool plummeted, THAT's when "stars didn't matter". Seems to me that stars only don't matter when you know you're not going to attract many.

    Let me get this straight, you are a BYU fan on a Utah thread talking smack about a kid with zero starts. Who is obsessed with stars? You need some mirror time. I guess when you are getting out-recruited by Utah year in and year out I can see where you would be a bit sensitive on the stars issue.

    And if you are even hinting that starts don't really matter, please see Alabama.

    Coaches have been watching kids for 3 years or longer by the time they get to be seniors. BYU and Utah both have a good handle on local talent and if they think a player is good enough they offer him a scholarship. What a scouting service thinks doesn't matter if a player is a known product.

    As for STARS in December, players who currently are listed as NR simply have Not be Rated. It does not mean that they have no Stars. If you're going to comment on recruiting it might help to understand how it works. Once again NR means NOT RATED.

    I admit I know nothing about this kid, and neither do any of these utah "fans". He may be the stud of all studs but based on utah "fan" criteria he is simply not what they claim utah gets. Offering a no star with no other offers before any other team does is not something utah does is it?

    I didn't see one word from Y's Little Brother about the kid with zero stars.

    In fact, the general theme of the "stars" discussion by BYU fans has been that "stars" are greatly over-rated when it comes to evaluating recruiting.

    It's interesting that while Utah fans are busy beating their chests about outrecruiting BYU (based solely on the number of stars given to each recruit), those same fans are completely ignoring the fact that Utah finished in the bottom third of the PAC 10.2 in recruiting, based on that exact same criteria.

    Since U only play BYU TWICE in the next four years, while playing THIRTY-SIX games against PAC 10.2 teams, shouldn't your main focus be on how the Utes stack up against the PAC 10.2.

    Thanks for confirming Utah's total obsession with their big brother, BYU.

    Let's not forget Utah walloping UCLA at home in 2007, then getting shut out by 10-loss UNLV the next week. Besides, didn't you just totally invalidate your entire "stars" argument by ignoring the fact that UCLA just signed SEVENTEEN 4-star recruits, while Utah only signed ONE?

    Couldn't agree with the utter hypocrisy of Utah fans. Their flavor-of-the-minute arguments are childish and hilarious. Utah recruiting a few 3-star recruits more than BYU is a monumental advantage, but UCLA recruiting SIXTEEN 4-star recruits more than Utah is insignificant. And now all of a sudden a zero-star recruit is a hidden gem simply because he committed to Utah.

    This is a complete underdog story that makes all of the crazy little league parent behavior even MORE idiotic. Here's a kid that NEVER played little league, never made an All Star team, or won a midget or bantam division and HE is the one that already has an offer (and committed) as his JUNIOR year in High School comes to an end.

    BYU fans commenting on this story should be ashamed of themselves; and Utah fans responding to the stupidity should as well.

    "Now that is TRUE OBSESSION a person who is a BYU fan from Baltimore MD reading and posting on A Utah Utes article on recruiting."

    Gotta laugh at the hypocrisy of Utah fans; THE biggest trolls on BYU blogs are two of your own - Chris B and his many aliases, who somehow manages to be the first blogger on nearly every BYU article, and your own dear Naval friend, who sometimes spews 5 or 6 posts in a row.

    It's funny that BYU-obsessed Utah fans are so busy whining about BYU fans introducing a little reality into their stars fest, that they won't even address the most salient question,

    "How does Utah expect to compete in the PAC 10.2 if the Utes are constantly being out recruited by the big boys of the conference?"

    To U, it's all about BYU.

    As long as you've convinced yourself that Utah's recruiting class is better than BYU's, that's the only thing that matters to U.

    Chris--
    "You BYU fans are going to start claiming to have equal talent to Alabama if Nick Saban finds an under the radar 0 star guy and offers him!"

    Are you claiming to have the same talent as Alabama, and that Whitt is as good a coach as Saban?

    Naval, "Frantic and emotional". Do you know any more adjectives? Dude, you seem like a positive guy. I wanna have dinner with you sometime, and just soak in the glow of your positive nature--

    I think this is a great get for Utah. The kid grew up wanting to be at the U, and Kyle was smart enough to grab him. He looks like he has great potential, and why wait around for him to collect "stars" befor he is offered?

    Good luck kid.

    An fyi to utah fans who comment negatively on BYU stories but then get angry when BYU fans comment negatively on Utah stories and vice versa. You can't have it both ways. What goes around comes around. Thick skins required here. I could add many more slogans.

    Unfortunately that is the ugliness of back and forth bantering.

    A solution. Utah people stay with Utah stories and vice versa for BYU fans. Anger most likely will go away.

    Another solution. The spoken golden rule.

    Hope all have a good weekend.

    Unbelievable the amount of hate-filled comments from BYU fans (or "byu" fans, as "duckhunter" would infamously say). Come on, guys. Your obsession and jealousy with everything related to the University of Utah football is sad and downright pathetic.

    You really need to spend more time following your own program and its Quest for Relevance.

    Out recruiting byu and beating them on the field doesn't help the Utes compete in the Pac12. byu is Irrelevant to the Utes,the Pac12 and all other Major Conferences,and the BCS. Go Utes

    Best of luck amigo! The ticket's been punched - now just go to class, do your homework, and score high enough on the tests to avoid Snow College! MaxPreps exists to pad somebody's pocket - who cares what they say. Where did MP rank Ziggy? Highest draft pick in this years draft, with ties to our State, and MP didn't have a clue/signing day event/endless experts... Again, best of luck, and congrats on your hard work!

    Kenyon Frison was just invited to The Opening aka Nike Elite Camp. The most prestigious high school football camp in the country. Its an invite only camp. Basically only the top 100 players in the country are invited. Don't be surprised if he is bumped from to a high 4 star, possibly 5 star recruit.

    GO UTES!!
