The Utes added another body to their cornerback ranks on Wednesday with Sidney Jones, a 6-foot corner out of West Covina, Calif., announcing on his twitter page he committed to the Utes.
Jones originally committed to San Jose State, but kept entertaining offers with both the Utes and Colorado making a push for him.
A visit to Salt Lake City last weekend made his decision, Jones said in a text.
"I just loved everything about Utah," he said.
What stood out to him was the academic support.
"You will get your degree for sure," he said.
Jones said he wants to study business or sports medicine.
