Utah Football Signs 3-Star DB JaTravis McCloud


I’m pretty sure this signee is on the all-name team, and I feel like he should be some kind of action movie star with the name JaTravis McCloud. The Utes pulled in this three-star rated defensive back out of Tulsa. He measures at 5-11 and 186 pounds.

His offer list wasn’t huge, but he did get an offer from Oregon near the end of the cycle, plus Texas Tech had an offer out for him as well. We know how Oregon loves speed, and that suits this young man well.

When you watch his highlights, what really jumps out to me, is how he plays the ball when it is in the air. He’s good at staying with the receiver, turning his head and finding the ball mid flight. He’s also rarely out of position on a play. He’s the kind of corner that Shah and Scalley love to have on an island, locked up against a guy one-on-one.
