Utah's best recruiting class in many years will help with depth and perhaps help the Utes pull off a few surprises. In the conference, there is absolutely no reason why Utah won't be in the title hunt until the final gun in the season-finale against BYU. This should be Whittingham's best team.
In their preseason writeup of the Utes, they rank them 39th in the nation and have some good things to say about this year's team. I have a feeling the BYU-Utah game might not only decide who wins the Mountain West.
But we'll see.
