The Utes bolster their linebacker corps with the addition of 6-3, 201 pound Graham Faloona out of Southlake, Texas. With the turnover on defense after this season, there will be reps up for grabs, and at the linebacker spot, there is a starting spot open, making for some opportunity on the two deep. Faloona is a bit small right now, but he could have a nice future at the position.
Here’s the intro video from the Utes with some more information and film on Faloona.
