Around the Hill: Your Ute and Pac-12 news - 5/12

Here is the news from around the hill and Pac-12 that happened this past weekend!

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Utah Softball Sweeps - The Utah softball team completed a sweep of Grand Canyon on Saturday by notching an 8-4 win. On Senior Day, Chalese Hadley put down two hits to drive in two runs, while eight other Utes got hits on the day. The win against Grand Canyon was the softball team's 8th consecutive win.

Utah Baseball drops a close one - The baseball team lost a close one on Sunday, dropping a game 1-0 to Washington State. The Cougars got a two-out RBI in the bottom of the 8th-inning to put the only run of the game on the board. Dalton Carroll had a great 7 2/3 innings of pitching. He struck out six, allowed one run on five hits with no walks. Utah takes the field again on Tuesday, against BYU in Salt Lake.

Pac-12 News: NFL Draft


The Trojans had a bunch of players move on to the draft. Some left early, like Marqise Lee, and got drafted early on. USC also had plenty of fringe players in this years draft as well. Our friends over at Conquest Chronicles did a write up on the possible future of those Trojans.


He was almost a Ute, a couple times actually, but Xavier Su'a-Filo was selected at the beginning of the 2nd-round by the Houston Texans. The Utah product was the 2nd Bruin taken, after Anthony BarrHere is the analysis by Bruins Nation on Su'a-Filo's pick to Houston.


A one time Utah commit (not to mention a commit to about five other schools at some point), Josh Huff is reuniting with Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. Huff was a 3rd-round pick, 86th overall.

Our main man, Alex Smith, is getting a little help in Kansas City with the addition of the Black Mamba. De'Anthony Thomas left Oregon a year early, and maybe slipped a little down to the 4th-round (124th pick). Regardless, this could be a very helpful pick up for the Chiefs, who need more offensive playmakers.


The steal of the draft may have been Ka'Deem Carey, the All-American running back out of Arizona. He fell in Chicago's lap in the 4th round (117th overall). There were 10 running backs drafted before Carey, who lead the nation in rushing two consecutive years.
