The Utes have lost their second starting wide receiver to the transfer portal in just a few weeks, as Samson Nacua has decided to put his name in the portal to try and find a new home.
The Timpview kid had 1015 yards, on 82 catches with 11 touchdowns in his Utah career, and was one of the better pass catchers for the Utes, and was always reliable. His 2020 season was slowed by an injury he had early in the shortened season for the Utes.
Nacua joins Bryan Thompson, who decided to go to ASU, to go into the portal. Utah is thinning out at wide out, but fortunately Jaylon Dixon returning to the fold helps out. Between he, Solo Enis and Britain Covey, the Utes won’t have a lot of returning bodies to the wide receiving corps that have a lot of catches and yards.
It hurts to lose Nacua, mainly because he is a Utah kid, and it always hurts to lose a local in anyway.
