National Signing Day open thread

Steve Dykes

Utes limp into the final stretch of the recruiting period after losing a slew of recruits.

It looked like Utah had weathered the 5-7 storm about as well as they could have - at least, that was until the last few days.

Now the Utes limp into signing day trying to salvage a class that, just last week, ranked 60th in the nation and now ranks 70th, and dead last in the Pac-12, according to Rivals. This after the de-commitments of Donovan Wilson and Joe Tukuafu, who committed to Utah State Tuesday.

They're not devastating losses, to be sure, but for an already shaky class, they do hurt. It also magnifies the overall concern facing Utah football - the coaches, for whatever reason, just aren't getting it done.

Still, it's signing day and, even if we're down, it still offers hope. Utah still does have some uncertain talent out there that could help bolster this class - including Kenyon Frison, Cal commit Tre Watson and Dacorius Law. Utah probably needs to land at least one, and hopefully it's Frison, to really bolster the buzz of this class.

Even so, don't expect a great class without some radical shockers. Utah is likely to finish no better than 10th in the Pac-12.

I guess the hope now is that the Utes can now push its way back into the top sixty.

We'll see.
