Still getting a lot of questions about Gionni Paul's eligibility at Utah. The linebacker who transferred from Miami could step in and be an immediate help. However, he will redshirt unless the NCAA allows transfers to play immediately as part of the organization's ruling on Miami.
When will the decision come? We are all still waiting. Here is an article that puts it into perspective how long the wait has been for Miami.
Utah's coaches believe there is only a slim chance things will fall into place and allow the 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker to play this year. They aren't getting their hopes up and fans probably shouldn't either.
In the meantime, Utah will plan to go with Trevor Reilly, V.J. Fehoko, LT Filiaga, Jared Norris and Jacoby Hale as the main guys. Senior Brian Blechen is getting better according to coach Kyle Whittingham, but he said Tuesday he considers Blechen a "wild card," with the tendinitis that has hobbled him.
