In Brekkott Chapman, Isaiah Wright and Kyle Kuzma, Utah has landed its highest rated recruiting class in almost 10 years.

Here's what the three will bring to the Utes

Brekkott Chapman - Is the 46th rated player in the country. A 6-foot-9 forward, he needs strength. But that may be his only glaring weakness. He is left-handed, he shoots the ball to three-point range. He can block shot. He draws defenders out to the perimeter and can go by them. He handles the ball and passes well in transition. He's the kind of versatile power forward that Jordan Loveridge has turned himself into.

Isaiah Wright - Larry Krystkowiak said he loves Wright's leadership. He's a big point guard at 6-foot-3 and can run a team. That's his biggest strength. He gets into the lane with ease and is a terrific passer. He gets guys into the right spots at the right times. He is the kind of guy who makes others around him better. Wright has led his high school team in Idaho to a state title. Was thought to be a Boise State lean, but the Utes snapped him up.

Kyle Kuzma - Plays a lot like Kyle Anderson from UCLA. Is 6-foot-9 and handles the ball like a guard. Can shoot from the perimeter and is a great passer. Kuzma committed to Utah in late August and passed up his senior season in high school to enroll in college early. Is currently a partial qualifer and will play as a freshman next season.
