Thread: 2019 Football Recruiting

  1. #121
    This could be the best recruiting news of all, although not technically recruiting:

    @AMarkhamRivals

    I’m hearing promising reports from a few sources that all #UteNation juniors that have NFL potential are planning on returning, especially Leki Fotu. Of course Zack Moss’ situation could be termed as “fluid,” but this is a big deal for the #UBoyz & @Utah_Football in 2019.

    Signing party for the early period goes down tomorrow. Doesnít seem to be much buzz going into the day. Maybe thatís just Utahís MO over the years. Kyle said that he expects to sign about 75% of the class tomorrow.

    Hereís who we have committed:
    Darren Jones- DJ seems to have some academic issues that heís trying to get sorted out. Will not be signing anywhere tomorrow. Blair Angilo was on ESPN 700 today and didnít think that DJ was that motivated to stay teamed up with Jayden Daniels, so maybe he pulls it out and stick with Utah. I wonít be holding my breath.
    Marist Talavou
    Lacarea Pleasant-Johnson- Blair said that he thought this might be the steal of the class and expects him to be really good.
    Micah Bernard
    Donte Banton
    Junior Tafuna
    Luke Felix-Fualalo
    Falcon Kaumatule
    LaColby Tucker
    Aaron Lowe-Mr Lowe has announced on Twitter about 75 times that heís 110% committed. He may be this yearís version of Hamilton.
    Ben Lennon

    As for surprise signees, Iím not sure. According to 247, the top three players in the state of Utah this year are:
    Samson Nacua- still committed to USC But is taking his time and doesnít plan on signing until February. Maybe we can hire his dad as our next OC.
    Siaki Ika- Still uncommitted But we wonít have to wait too long as he intends to announce tomorrow at 7 a.m. Very warm on Utah. Utah, USC, Oregon, Florida and LSU. LSU seems to be the expectation.
    Chase Roberts- this one surprised me a bit as I didnít think he was ranked so high. Committed to BYU. Visited Utah two weeks ago. Been committed to BYU for a long time but getting more attention lately. I think he stays now that the Cougars.
    The next three ranked kids are Binghamís defensive line. Taufuna, Pepa and Langi. Crystal Ball has them all as Utes.

    I loved living in Louisiana - if you have to go to the SEC, that's definitely the school to pick - but I still think this is crazy.

    SEC schools based on geography:

    Lsu, Vanderbilt, Georgia, South Carolina, ...

    Then it's a ten way tie for last place.

    Game day in Death Valley is arguably THE greatest experience in all of football, NFL included.

    There are a lot of campus game days that beat the NFL experience. That's one place where college still wins. I've been to a game in death valley. It's great, but it's not insanely better than the other good college experiences (it's not the Cameron Indoor of college football).

    So how'd we do? As expected?

    this may delay my calling an election made sure candidacy but is anyone else as relieved as I am when none of today's signees are mission bound?



    although according to Steve Bartle, Utah's players leaving on missions aren't signing till Feb

    I with you on that. Unfortunately, without missions, I believe we would have three more signees today. The Bingham three plan on going on missions right out of high school. They may "sign" in February, but we won't see them for a bit.

    they're always a nice surprise after a couple of years, but I might not live that long? I don't even risk buying green bananas

    Watching right now and just heard that spot. My guess would be that he's not a fan of ASU. Seeing that they pulled in three 4* QBs today, I would imagine that there's some "very interesting" details behind their recruiting.

    Just a guess: ASU's suitcases full of cash.

    At least one of those QBs is transferring next season.

    Pretty great for ASU to get three of them. You figure at least one will be good, right?

    Crazy about all sports. My daughter would play vs LSU in softball and since she played 1b and close to the crowd theyíd razz her relentlessly. No four letter words or anything, but, constant chattering (calling her out by name) throughout the entire game. Great softball atmosphere but Baton Rouge is trashy IMO.

    Game Day is the only show in town. Total trash town other than that.

    Yes. Just looked up the 2018 quarterback rankings. Trevor Lawrence was number one, JT Daniels number two, Tanner McKee three Jack Tuttle 8th and Rising 11.

    One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike -- and yet it is the most precious thing we have.

    --Albert Einstein

    The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.
