Former Utah WR Raelon Singleton transfering to Houston

NCAA Football: Utah at Washington Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

Utah’s second leading wide receiver, Raelon Singleton decided to leave the program back in Janurary to be closer to family in Houston. It appears the Texas native is going to finish his playing career in the AAC with the Houston Cougars. The tall wideout had oer 500 yards and 4 touchdowns last season for the Utes, and was likely going to be the leading receiver for the Utes in the 2018 season. His size and body control made him a very nice target for the Utes over his career. Houston is coming off of a bit of a down season, after a great 2016 season, and he figures to get plenty of opportunties in the passing game with the Cougars.

Fortunately, for the Utes, they have a good, young receiver corps coming back. Britton Covey is the deadliner, but Demari Simpkins, Bryan Thompson, Samson Nacua and Bronson Boyd appear to be a nice group to move foward with.

As we said back when the news broke with Singleton, it hurts to lose a player of his caliber, but hopefully being closer to home for family brings him the happiness he was looking for, and hopefully he balls out this season for Houston.
