Utah football will sign Kendall Huey in the fall and he will count toward the 2016 class (via Matt Piper of the SL Trib). Huey is a composite 24/7 three-star defensive end from Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz. The 6-foot-4, 240 pound junior college defensive end will likely be expected to compete right away for playing time to try to help replace the Ted Hendrick Award and Morris Trophy winner Nate Orchard. Orchard's production cannot be replicated by one player, but adding a player like Huey with 4.6 speed in the 40-yard dash will help.
In only two games this season, Huey recorded 19 tackles, five tackles for loss and three sacks. He also recovered a fumble. In his two years in junior college, he recorded 41 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, four sacks, two fumble recoveries, and one interception.
Utah was Huey's only offer coming out of junior college. Expect him to compete for playing time this season, at least as part of the rotation along the defensive line.
