Juan Diego Catholic HS, Draper, Utah four-star strong side defensive end Xavier Carlton signed with the Utah Utes today. Carlton moved back to Utah over the summer and will play at his father’s alma mater. Carlton chose to stay home over offers from many national powers.
Carlton, an All-American Bowl participant, is massive at 6-7, 262 pounds. Depending on how his body develops, he could play at several spots along the defensive line. He uses his huge wingspan well to prevent blockers from getting to his body. He still has room to develop and add weight/strength to his frame, but given his amazing measurables, his upside is as big as he is. It will be exciting watching him develop at Utah.
Carlton is ranked No. 3 in the state of Utah, the No. 13 SDE, and No. 299 overall according to the 247Sports Composite Ranking.
Welcome to Utah!
