Utah just landed one of the best JUCO players in the country in Snow College (Ephraim, Utah) four-star offensive tackle Garett Bolles. Bolles is rated the No. 3 overall JUCO player by the 247Sports Composite ranking and the No. 2 offensive tackle.
Bolles has excellent size at 6-6, 290 and has the talent to come in and be a day one starter for Utah. His primary recruiter was Utah co-offensive coordinator Jim Harding. In his Hudl film, Bolles shows why he was one of the most heavily recruited JUCO prospects. He mauls defenders and uses his hands well to prevent defenders from getting to his body. He is athletic and can get out front and block for running plays. Bolles has the nastiness that Utah loves in their offensive linemen. He does not quit on a play until the whistle blows. His combination of physical tools, skill set, and aggressiveness makes Bolles a fantastic pickup for the Utes.
