Utah has signed Florida’s Gatorade high school player of the year in quarterback Tyler Huntley. The 6-1 178 lb. quarterback is one of three players from Florida's Hallandale high school who committed to Utah and is an early enrollee along with high school teammate Demari Simpkins. Huntley has a three star composite rating. Huntley received offers from the likes of Louisville, Cincinnati and South Florida and received interest from other programs such as Ohio State, Miami and LSU.
Huntley was a coveted recruit by the Utah coaching staff and continues the influx of Florida players into Utah’s program from Dennis Erickson’s pipeline. As a senior, Huntley passed for 3,636 yards 42 TDs. Huntley brings an outgoing personality and has demonstrated good leadership qualities, traits the staff was looking for at the quarterback position.
With fellow commit Troy Williams on campus, Huntley is likely looking at redshirting the upcoming season. He needs to add some bulk onto his frame before he is ready for the rigors of Pac-12 play. Looking ahead however, Huntley has a very bright future with the Utah football program and could very well be the quarterback of the future.
