2018 Utah football recruiting awards

Bryant Pirtle knows where the weight room is

National signing day was yesterday in college football and the Utes put together yet another amazing class. Here are some dudes to keep an eye on.

MVP: Jack Tuttle QB, CA. He’s the best QB recruit Utah has ever signed. He enrolled early and will compete for the starting QB job as a true freshman. He has all the tools and plenty of size to withstand a PAC12 season. USC, Ohio state and Alabama all wanted him yet somehow Utah was able to hold onto his commitment. He also played an integral role in landing Solomon Enis who is undoubtedly the best WR Utah has ever signed out of High school. 

 

Best highlight: Devin Brumfield RB, LA. This guy is huge and fast. He plays like a bowling ball made of butcher knives. 5’10” and 225lbs, he may not be a running back his whole career but still, his highlight will put a smile on your face. 

 

Biggest steal: Solomon Enis WR, AZ. Utah found out at 4:30am on national signing day that Enis was going to be a Ute. USC, Georgia, Michigan state and Oregon all wanted him but the idea of playing early must have intrigued the 4 star wideout from Arizona.  

 

Biggest question mark: Tareke Lewis CB, Fla. He’s talented and fast but does he have the grades? No one wants to go to class. We all wanted to play in the games and party all night but going to class is important. You need the team more than the team needs you and some players take too long to figure that out. If Lewis decides to go to class, he’ll be fine. If not, he’ll be left behind.

 

Best twins: Blake and Brant Kuithe ATH, TX. Oh man, they are totally twins. They could both play a number of positions once they get on campus. They can also read each other’s minds, probably.

 

Future mauler: Hunter Lotulelei OG, UT. This guy already looks like an all-PAC12 guard. I love the violence he plays with. Once he returns from his LDS mission he will be in the mix to start on the O-line immediately. Highlight

 

Most Versatile: Bryant Pirtle OLB, KY. This guy has all the tools. He can play in space, he can rush the passer and he can tackle well. At 6’3 235lbs, he was  able to run with everyone at the junior college level. He still has to prove that he can cover guys at the PAC12 level.
