Utes pulling in 2nd best non-AQ recruiting class

7
Utah Utes Top prospect: QB Derrick Brown (Murrieta, Calif./Vista Murrieta) The Utes are putting together one of their better classes under coach Kyle Whittingham, and selling future Pac-10 play to recruits appears to be paying dividends. Utah already has 17 commits in its well-balanced class. Brown is a steal and should be a highly productive quarterback thanks to his great dual-threat skill set and athleticism out of the spread. Other schools may have passed over offensive tackle Daniel Kristensen (Salt Lake City/Cottonwood) because of his lighter frame, but we see a lineman with very good feet, agility and a high ceiling for physical development. Future depth has been added at receiver with several system-fitting prospects, including Charles Henderson (New Orleans/McDonogh).

Not sure how many of you care, but Utah is ranked 23rd in NCAA Football 2011. The only other Mountain West team ranked is TCU at 8th.

Utes remain ranked; 23rd in Coaches

I'm surprised. I thought they'd drop out. I'm not entirely sure we deserve this ranking after that performance.

Utes 17th in AP Top-25

Not bad. But let's be honest, folks, this top-25 sucks. Seriously. Arizona? BYU? Wisconsin? Cal? Virginia Tech? You know we're having a season of parody when those teams are cracking the top-25 this late in the season with some embarrassing losses.

Utes crack top-25

They're 24th in the media poll and 29th in the Coaches. Another win next week will put them in both.

Utes #18 in AP, 16 in Coaches

Not a surprise. I don't think anyone expected them to move up after that performance. BYU is 7th in the AP, 9th in the Coaches. TCU 15th in both.

Utes 17th in both media & coaches poll

BYU 9th in the media and 12th in the coaches.

Just more proof we rock. ;) 17. Utah Utes, selected by Mark Schlabach The Utes are the only team in the country to have two perfect seasons during the BCS era. Utah has two top-five finishes during the BCS era (more than Michigan, Nebraska and Penn State). Utah produced current Florida coach Urban Meyer (who became the first coach from a non-BCS school to crash the BCS party) and current coach Kyle Whittingham (who was the last coach to expose an SEC school in a BCS bowl game). BYU and Boise State were possible choices here, too, but the Utes have flourished on the national stage more than once.
