Utah is getting a huge player with the signing of Snow College (Ephraim, Utah) offensive tackle Garett Bolles. Bolles, who had offers from just about every major college program, is rated a four-star OT according to the 247Sports Composite ranking. At 6-6, 290, Bolles has the prototypical size to play left tackle. He is one of the top JUCO players in the country. He was the offensive MVP of the WSFL, which illustrates how truly dominant he is that he could win that over quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers. Bolles has a rare combination of size, athleticism, and aggressiveness.
Bolles is a mauler who does not stop blocking until the whistle blows. His Hudl highlights are filled with him blocking a player and pushing him 20+ yards down the field. He uses his hands and arms well to keep defenders away from his body. He can get out in front of a running play to open up a hole for a running back and can block down the field.
It was a team effort for Utah recruiting Bolles. Defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley and co-offensive coordinator Jim Harding took the lead recruiting the massive Snow offensive tackle. Bolles is one of if not the highest rated recruits Utah has ever landed. He was reportedly Utah's top target regardless of position according to UteZone's Dan Sorensen. This is a huge get for Utah, and I would not be shocked to see him step in and be a day one starter for the Utes this fall.
