The Utes got some stiff competition this weekend when 5 star defensive tackle Siaki Ika from East high school took a visit outside the state. The Alabama crimson tide brought the mauling big man on campus for a visit. Ika has a scholarship offer to just about any school in the country. The Utes can’t afford to have other schools come in and poach talent right out of their backyard.
There is another major prospect in the state of Utah for the class of 2019 that the Utes would love to hold on to. WR Puka Nacua holds offers from USC, Utah and Arizona right now but his stock will continue to rise this off season. His brother Samson already plays for the Utes so it would be that much more disappointing if the Utes can’t land Puka’s services.
