Running back John White, corner Mo Lee and safety Keith McGill are just two of several junior college transfers who could have prominent roles for the Utes this season.
Taking JC players is always a bit of a risk, many have academic struggles or take so long to learn new systems they can't contribute immediately. However, Utah has had good luck with transfers recently including lineman John Cullen and running back Tauni Vakapuna who both contributed last year.
Here is a video of coach Kyle Whittingham discussing the Utes' philosophy in signing JC transfers.
