Utah football released their weekly press releasing heading into week three of fall camp, and it includes a new depth chart and some new faces. Utah is in the last week of fall camp, which ends Saturday, Aug. 22. Regular season practices, along with classes, begin on Aug. 24.
Junior wide receiver/cornerback Cory Butler has decided to hyphenate his last name and will now be referred to as Cory Butler-Byrd. Freshman wide receiver George Wilson is now going by Siaosi Wilson,
The biggest move is that Bubba Poole and Britain Covey are listed as co-starters at the H (slot) receiver position, which had previously had Butler-Byrd atop the depth chart. Speaking of Butler-Byrd, he is now the starter at right cornerback, but he is still considered a two-way player, at receiver and cornerback. Covey is also listed as the starter at punt return and is battling with Kyle Fulks for a spot returning kicks (along with Butler-Byrd). At tight end, a battle is brewing between junior Siale Fakailoatonga, who has been the starter throughout fall camp, and senior Evan Moeai, as the two are now listed as co-starters. Kenneth Scott is expected to return to practice as soon as today (Aug. 17). His backup at X receiver this week is true freshman Siaosi Wilson. Assuming the starting role at Z receiver in place of injured senior Tim Patrick is true freshman Tyrone Smith, backed up by junior Delshawn McClellon.
Senior defensive end Sione Sina, a transfer from California, joined the camp "105" roster last week. Sina played at Cal in 2013 and 2014 and transferred to Utah after graduating in the spring with a bachelor's degree in sociology. He has one year to play one and is eligible to play immediately. Also joining the "105" last week was a familiar face in Marcus Sanders-Williams. Williams, a junior linebacker who appeared in all 13 games last fall (mostly on special teams), left the team in the spring to explore other options. The roster is capped at 105 players during fall camp and will expand to around 115-120 players when school starts. Both of these players should help to add quality depth at their respective positions.
