Nice article, Dan. I'm assuming Osa is Uaea's younger brother?
StGYou are correct, Osa is Uaea's brother.
Yes he is Uaea's brother!, and hopefully he doesnt do what Uaea did, which
was not try very hard his whole senior year, because he was getting ready for
the U. But again desnews! Very saddened by the little coverage you
do for spring sports. ALREADY YOUR TALKING FOOTBALL, wont start till August. Its not football, there season wont start for 4 months! why
not take this time and go maybe show 4A, 5A baseball and softball playoffs! Maybe talk about the current season, not about how A big Lineman, and a
junior to be. I dont get all the football articles right now,
when.....5A/4A baseball, soccer, and softball playoffs have now
started. Then track is also finishing up. Why not get
over another Utah kid going to the U for football, and do this article mid
summer. not right in the middle of the playoffs for these other sports. I wonder if the desnews will delete this comment as well.
Nice job once again Dan! Can't wait to have Jackson on
board!!Come on Osa - follow your big brother and Choose The Red!!
Osa,Why would you choose Utah over half the real PAC 12 schools?
Honestly, your buddy Jackson jumped too early.Go play for big time
schools because you're both big time players. JMHO
Speaking of recruits, Utah just received a "solid verbal" commitment
from Raelon Singleton, a 6-5, 3-star WR out of Crosby, TX. Rivals is reporting
that he runs a 4.5-forty. Sounds promising.GO UTES!!!

reporting on recruiting do their job, while the people responsible for high
school coverage are obviously doing theirs with far fewer readers than this
More football news please. I'll take it 365.
Osa, Jackson and Isaiah are all starters on the Brighton JV basketball team that
did so well this year. Osa played quality minutes on the varsity (2nd in state
only to LP) and Isaiah got some v time as well. In other words, these are 3 very
good athletes, all with good character.
Great get for whittinghamIs Barton considered too athletic for byu
to offer?We have seen many "byu families" have kids pick
Utah recently. Interesting we don't see the reverse happening
interesting article but it failed to mention what positions Osa plays. I had to
watch the video to learn that.
"We have seen many "byu families" have kids pick Utah
recently."I can pretty well guess the point you are trying to
make, but you may not realize where your argument might be headed. Take Chase
Hansen from Lone Peak. You can talk to his parents, friends, coaches, or him
(well...maybe not, he's serving a mission) and you won't find that
there is any 'hate' for BYU. His parents have raised a great young
man, and instilled in Chase the knowledge that the decision about where he goes
to play football will be his decision to make. In other words, these "BYU
parents" kept an open mind as they raised their families. Dad played
football for the Y, so he's absolutely a Cougar. Perhaps these "byu
families" have raised their kids to respect and make their own decisions?
If you are fair and honest about it, you will see that happening on both sides
of the field.
Naval - have you noticed that there isn't a mention of Singleton in the DN
yet, even though he committed yesterday? Hey Dan - good thing
you're here so we can remedy this DN bias.Go Utes!!
VegasUte:I DID notice that. That's why I posted about it here.
I guess the DNews is more interested in reporting on which unheralded, 0-star
athlete MIGHT be considering the Indy-WACers, rather than reporting on any
athletes with more than 2-stars making their choices outside of the bubble.
Naval VetReally? when are you going to give up the childish name
calling? There are high roads and low roads.
Natester - consider the source, it's Chris B. Trying to make a logical
point with him is the same as trying to make a logical point with the ducky, it
just doesn't stick, so don't waste your breath.
Chris BWe all know BYU doesn't recruit every kid in the state
for reasons that are obvious. Those obvious reasons cause them to move to other
recruiting grounds. Considering all that, BYU does an amazing job getting the
kids that fit their profile. Barton and Masina are great pickups,
congrats to U. Try to be happy for them and try to leave the snarky remarks
The Utes are doing a great job recruiting, particularly in state. Those
recruits better soon turn into at least top half of the PAC and an occasional
1st or 2nd in the south division, or Whit will be looking for a job, and
recruits will start looking elsewhere.
Thanks VegasUte. Your absolutely right. Probably best to save my breath. I
didn't write it for Chris B., however. I know he posts and won't read
/ consider logic. I shared opinion in case anyone else was open minded and
listening. Good to see your passion for the Utes. I can understand and respect
With this talent, the Bengals should be in the hunt for that all too elusive
VegasUte.Exactly. Trying to use logic on Chris or Ducky is truly a
waste of effort. They are like that one kid in marching band that looks around
and thinks, "Ha! Everyone is marching to the wrong beat except for me!"
