The Utah Utes will learn tonight if a weekend visit by a highly sought after recruit was enough to sway him to pick Utah. Kylie Fitts, a defensive end out of Redlands, Calif., will announce tonight at 7:45 p.m. which school he will sign with on Wednesday.
The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Fitts has Utah among his final choices and word is his recent visit to Salt Lake City went well.
If he does pick the Utes, he would bolster what already is a deep recruiting class for defensive ends with the Utes having commitments from Euless, Texas pair Sam Tevi and Gaius Vaenuku and Myron Aiava out of Westminster, Calif.
Signing day should be relatively uneventful for the Utes as most of their players seem strong in their commitments.
One player still undecided who could pick the Utes is Micah Thomas, an athlete out of Galena Park, Texas who is being recruited by Air Force as well as the Utes.
Air Force is wooing him with the prospect of playing quarterback while the Utes are recruiting him more as an overall athlete.
