More Utah football players named to pre-season Watch Lists

NCAA Football: Washington at Utah Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

More Utah football players have been named to watch lists over the past couple of days, and to no surprise, many of them will see their names show up on multiple watch lists, including Lowell Lotulelei. Lowell has been named to the Outland and Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch Lists. Lowell is primed for a big time season, and I can’t wait to see what he’ll do.

One name I was curious to see if they’d be named to a list is Chase Hansen. He was also named to the Bronko Nagurski list, and should have a great junior season. I think Hansen is one we need to enjoy, because he could follow in Marcus Williams’ footsteps after this season.

Of course, Mitch Wishnowsky was named to the Utah Utes Punter of the Year Award, also known as the Ray Guy Award. The Utes will be looking for four straight award winners in this category, including two by Tom Hackett and one by Wishnowsky himself.

All these players join Kyle Fitts, and Lowell for the third time, on a watch list.
