The Seattle Times profiled Cort Dennison, a graduate of Judge Memorial who wasn't offered a scholarship by Utah. Seems like the Utes missed on a good get, as Dennison is now a starting linebacker and team captain who leads the Huskies with 34 tackles this year.
Dennison said in the article he doesn't hold any hard feelings towards the Utes. "It's just, I don't know what it is, but you know sometimes you get looked at as an underdog, but those kind of things just motivate me and I like when people doubt me or whatever the case may be," he is quoted as saying.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, who says getting the best in-state talent is a priority for him, was asked about Dennison during Monday's press conference.
Whittingham didn't elaborate too much on why the Utes didn't offer Dennison, saying only the Utes did know of him. "He's doing a nice job," Whittingham said.
