Lucky Radley Leaves Utah to Walk on at San Diego State

Lucky Radley will leave Utah and walk on at San Diego State in 2014. - Gene Sweeney Jr.

Fan favorite Utah running back Lucky Radley has decided to leave Utah and walk on at San Diego State.

When Lucky Radley committed to the University of Utah football team in 2010, he was considered a big get not only because he had some talent, but also because he was one of the best recruiters for the Utes over the coming months and years.

It was reported late Friday night by the San Diego Union-Tribune that Lucky Radley, who has graduated from the U, will be leaving Utah and will join San Diego State next season as a walk on. Radley was always a big fan favorite, not only because of how great of an ambassador for Utah he was, but also because of his work ethic and team-first mentality. The problem for Radley was that he was always buried on the depth chart at Utah. When he got on campus in 2010 he redshirted behind Eddie Wide and Matt Asiata. In 2011 and 2012 he was behind Jon White, Harvey Langi and Kelvin York. In 2013 Bubba Poole ascended to starter and Kelvin York was higher on the depth chart as well. Going into 2014 with Poole, Devontae Booker, Troy McCormick, and many other young running backs on roster, Radley would have been fighting an uphill battle for any playing time.

The Aztecs, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, have a starter in place at running back already with sophomore D.J. Pumphrey. Radley will be battling with junior Chase Price and redshirt freshman Marcus Stamps for the back up role for the Aztecs.

In his Utah career Lucky Radley appeared in 24 games, averaged 4.5 yards per carry, had 334 yards, and three touchdowns. It's safe to say that all Ute fans will miss Lucky and wish him the best of luck at SDSU!
