Three star offensive lineman Alex Harrison signs with Utah football

@UtahAthletics on Twitter

The Utes got a hometown hero with Alex Harrison, and really helped shape this class of locals that stayed home. The 6-4, 333 ponder from Bountiful has all the measurables to be a tackle, and the Utes are excited to have him to help bolster the depth of the offensive line. Harrison had offers from all over the Pac-12 and with other P5 schools, and was a great pickup for the Utes. At the size he is already, he may be able to step in right away and compete for a spot, since a lot of linemen need a year to develop. The question for him is can he pick up the schemes and the college game quickly.
