In Football News...

  • DC Morgan Scalley continues to hype up our Utes ahead of the NFL Draft. This time it’s Nephi Sewell’s turn.
  • Former Utah LB Devin Lloyd is a consensus premier player in this year’s NFL Draft.
  • It’s been a while since we’ve seen a pre-season ranking but the Utes are still receiving the respect they deserve after their incredible 2021 season. It’s also good to see Oregon also representing the Pac-12.
  • For some reason it was lost on me at how many Utah OLineman have been drafted over the past 5 years. Hopefully we will add one or two more this year.

In Basketball News...

  • Jenna Johnson picked up ANOTHER Pac-12 Freshman of the Week honor.
  • Utah Freshmen Jenna Johnson and Gianna Kneepkens have combined for a total of 8 Freshman of the Week honors.

  • This is pretty cool to see men’s basketball assistant coach Tim Morris talk about his coaching experience.

Other Utah Sports News...

  • Starter Matt Sox was named a National Player of the Week by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper for his performance on Saturday night.
