Utah Football Signs DE Bradlee Anae

Kahuku HS (Kahuku, Hawaii) all-state defense end Bradlee Anae has made it official by signing with Utah. Earlier today, he chose Utah over offers from BYU and Vanderbilt (you can read more about his decision here). Anae will be joining his sister, Adora Anae, who is a sophomore on the Utah volleyball team and was first team All-Pac-12.

While he will need to add some weight (he is 6-5, 230), I am a big fan of his game. He also has a nice frame to support adding good weight. Probably because of his size, he seems like an underrated, hidden gem prospect. Utah has a history of turning slightly undersized players into elite defensive ends (players like Ted Hendricks Award winner Nate Orchard come to mind). You can see in his film above, he is excellent at getting pressure off the edge. He has the quickness Utah looks for in their edge rushers.
