Josh Gordon, a junior receiver who has left the Baylor program, is in Salt Lake City and soon could be joining the Utes.
Gordon, a 6-foot-4, 220-pounder who was the Bears' second-leading receiver in 2010 with 42 catches for 714 yards and seven touchdowns, was suspended indefinitely before preseason camp began and was arrested last October after being found in a car that had marijuana inside it.
Following his departure from the Baylor team, Gordon got in touch with Utah's coaches to see if they had a spot for him.
Utah's coaches have been doing a background check on Gordon, who would have to sit out a year before he could play.
