Utah Football: Utes pick up commitment from ATH Samson Nacua

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Utes are robbing Utah county more in the recruiting game, and returning to the well that got them Britain Covey, and they're hoping for similar results. Utah offered and received a commitment from Timpview ATH Samson Nacua on Saturday night. Samson is the brother of BYU defensive back Kai Nacua.

Early reports are he may play safety, but with Covey and Scott leaving, you'd have to think he'll get a serious look at wide receiver. If you want his embedded footage, he plays the ball very well, and catches the ball with his hands, which is a good trait for a wide receiver. Some receivers will allow the ball to get into their body, which causes a lot of drops. He also has some elusiveness, not as much as Covey, but he has the ability to make someone miss in the open field.

This could potentially be a nice pick up for the Utes, even if Nacua doesn't bring the nice star ranking that other recruits have. Trevor Phibbs of the Salt Lake Tribune has been on this story tonight, and he tweeted out the following:

I love this class, even though Utah has missed on a couple of kids. I have a feeling this could be an instant impact class, especially with the addition of Troy Williams, Tyler Huntley, Davir Hamilton and Demari Simpkins.  You can see the full class below.
