Utah kicks off Spring Football on Monday

NCAA Football: Utah at Arizona State Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The 2019 season is underway... well, kind of, at least the spring version of it. The Utes kicked off spring practices on Monday at the practice fields up on the Hill, and the veteran Utes are looking bigger and faster, which is great news for Utah football fans.

Reports from around the web on the opening practice are very positive. KSL’s own Josh Furlong had some great breakdown of what he saw today. He pointed out the fact that guys look bigger, like Tyler Huntley, TJ Green and others. Also, the running back position is loaded, and Josh isn’t the only one saying that. Bill Riley, the voice of the Utes, echoed those sentiments.

Not only does Utah have Zach Moss, but Devontae Henry Cole is back practicing and reports are he is showing some of the speed he had before going down before the last season. We’re also yet to see 4-star running back Jordan Wilmore make it to campus. The Utes should be able to keep Moss fresh throughout the season with the depth that they have.

Julian Blackmon was moved to safety going into spring, and reports are he’s a natural fit there. I think his athleticism and ability to read a play will be a major addition to the safety crew, and in effort to get the best 11 on the field. It will be key for Blackmon and the rest of the safety group to step in for the departures of Marquise Blair and Corrion Ballard.

The Utes are back at it on Tuesday.
