Athlon sports named their top 25 breakout players for 2018 and Tyler Huntley came in at number 14.
14. Tyler Huntley, Utah
Huntley unseated returning starter Troy Williams for the top spot on the Utah depth chart and accounted for 294.8 total yards a contest last fall. That total ranked third among Pac-12 players in 2017 and also came with Huntley sidelined for three contests. Huntley has room to grow as a passer but still finished with 2,411 yards and 15 touchdowns last fall. Additionally, the Florida native accounted for 537 yards and six scores on the ground. With another offseason to work under coordinator Troy Taylor, Huntley should show progress as a passer, while maintaining his dual-threat ability for the Utes. The junior should rank among the Pac-12’s top passers in 2018.
