Working on a story about Utah long snapper Patrick Greene, who probably holds the most thankless position on the Utes' football team. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said the ideal situation is to get a guy like Greene, who comes in as a freshman and snaps all four years.
It sounds like they've found Greene's replacement as Chase Dominguez, a snapper at Orange Lutheran in Orange, Calif., committed to the Utes Tuesday.
Dominguez had offers from UCLA, Washington State and Oregon according to his private snapping coach, Chris Rubio.
"I have him ranked as the No. 4 guy in the country so they are getting a good one," he said. "He is very smooth and is a nice all-around kid."
