Spring break is over for the Utah Utes which means the football team gets back to work today from 3-to-5 p.m. The Utes also practice Wednesday from 3-to-5 p.m. and have a scrimmage set for Friday at the stadium from 5-to-7 p.m. The public can attend any practices as long as the practices are held outside and not indoors due to weather. Couple of experiments are over for some players. Lucky Radley has moved back from corner to his original position at running back and Boo Andersen has moved back from fullback to linebacker. The guy to watch this week, particularly in the scrimmage, is quarterback Tyler Shreve, who has impressed coach Kyle Whittingham in the first few practices and has made progress by 'leaps and bounds,' he said. Whittingham's praise seemed similar to that which he gave Jordan Wynn during his first spring session with the Utes. Whittingham acknowledged there are similarities. "Jordan was a little more polished," he said. "But Tyler is working hard and is doing a good job." Tuesday the Utes are holding pro day, which the public can't attend.
