Another hometown hero is on board with the signing of Jackson Cravens, a three-star 6’ 3”, 285 pound defensive tackle out of Timpview High in Provo. Jackson had a nice offer list, with the likes of Michigan State, Oregon, Arizona, Georgia, and even Princeton. From the Power 5 to the Ivy Leagues, that’s pretty impressive. Utah has done really well with landing a lot of these in state kids this season. It’s also always fun to pull a kid out of Utah county.
When you watch Cravens’s film, he reminds me a lot of Hunter Dimick. Similar to Snacks, Cravens has a nice motor and nose to make plays in the backfield. He’s a similar size as Dimick, and should hopefully fill some shoes that he left behind, since Utah’s ability to get to the QB wasn’t as strong this season.
