Had some questions about Utah's kicking situation, an area in which the Utes struggled last year. The Utes are expecting Zachary Schottenfeld, a kicker from Tesoro H.S. in California, to walk onto the team.
Nick Marsh, who handled the kickoff duties, has left the team, but the Utes should return Tom Hackett, who specialized in rugby-style kicks.
The Utes also plan to have Chase Dominguez out of Orange Lutheran in California to handle the long snapping duties.
Patrick Greene, who walked onto the team in 2008, handled the snapping duties for the last four years.
The Utes also had two other kickers on their 2012 roster who could return, freshman Andy Phillips out of Draper, Utah and Jamie Sutcliffe out of Newbury Park, Calif.
