Went to the @Utah_Football spring practice today. Player I’m excited about this fall? RJ Hubert. Has had a few unlucky injuries the last 2 years, but his anticipation and athleticism are off the charts— Britain Covey (@brit_covey2) April 1, 2022

Had a fantastic convo with Britain Covey today. Few things:— Cole Bagley (@bagley_cole) March 31, 2022
He decided to forego his final year because he felt 21' was his best and a perfect ending.
He's had convos with most NFL teams but 6 have spoken to him more than others.
Most scouts said he boosted his stock at pro day.
- Brant Kuithe and Dalton Kincaid were invited to the NFL Combine but turned down the offer to return and play their senior seasons.
- Freshman RB Jaylon Glover is coming in HOT. Expect big things from this guy come Fall.
Whittingham on Glover: "He is very mature & doesn't act like a kid that should still be in high school. He has a tremendous work ethic & is organized in all facets of his life. He has things laid out the way he wants them with goals & we think will be very important for us."— Cole Bagley (@bagley_cole) March 30, 2022
- Recent 2023 commit, QB Mack Howard, sounds bought in. If he can share that confidence with other recruits we could see a really special class come together.
@MackHoward_ on why he chose Utah: "They went to a Rose Bowl this year. That's the first step & it's only going to get better.— 2️⃣2️⃣ThiccBoi7 Fan Club President2️⃣2️⃣ (@thetyrusaurus) March 31, 2022
What's about to happen is about to be special, & I can't wait to be a part of it."
