Utah's signing day is under way with the Utes welcoming aboard several players from Florida, including running back Tavaris Williams, receiver Kenric Young and safety Andre Godfrey.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said before signing day the Utes were hoping to make Florida their new gold mine for talent.
"Dennis Erickson has a lot of ties and connections down there along with (defensive coordinator) Kalani Sitake," he said. "Between the two of them we have opened up a lot of doors down there."
The Utes lost East tight end Joe Tukuafu to Utah State. He was supposed to go on a mission before joining the Utes but instead joined the list of guys the Utes couldn't keep within their fold.<
