- 2023 QB Gabarri Johnson won a 7-on-7 tournament and was named the tournament MVP. Johnson is a 4-star QB out of Washington who took an unofficial visit to Utah a couple of weeks ago and loved it. If Johnson continues to perform well at these tournaments and camps then his rating could rise significantly.
.@GabarriJohnson5 showed today he is the BEST QB in the west!!! Not close!! So proud of our boys! Our defense is the REAL DEAL! Our wideouts and TEs are unstoppable! Let’s go https://t.co/KMlLNmlBjd— Tracy Ford (@TFordFSP) January 31, 2022
- 2023 DE Hunter Clegg turned 17 yesterday and shared what looks to be his current top-12 schools. Clegg is a 4-star DE out of American Fork. It looks like he is looking to stay out west and I wouldn't be surprised to see him end up at one of the schools in Utah as BYU, Utah State, and Utah all made the top-12.
Blessed to see 17 today! pic.twitter.com/xtgUGdcRWC— Hunter Clegg (@HunterClegg) January 30, 2022
