Utah cleaned up on National Signing Day, including Corner Canyon (Draper, Utah) three-star defensive tackle Keaton Bills, who chose Utah over BYU and Stanford. He will serve a two-year LDS mission prior to coming to Utah. He also held offers from Arizona State, Oregon State, Purdue, Utah State, Vanderbilt, Washington State, and Wisconsin. His primary recruiter was Utah defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley. Utah did a great job keeping top in-state talent home in this class, and part of that is because they landed Bills.
Love, love, love the pick up of Keaton Bills. Classic throwback player that is tough as a nails and physically ready to play PAC 12 football— Andrew Gorringe (@AGorringeScout) February 3, 2016
I love the tough, "lunch pail" guys like Bills are that are not flashy, they just work hard and make plays. Former Utah linebacker Jared Norris was one of these types of players as well. Bills is 6-5, 250 and very physical.
Bills, who will serve an LDS mission immediately, said he made the decision late Monday. Said BYU "was very close No. 2."— Trevor Phibbs (@trevorphibbs) February 3, 2016
