Utes add more players to 2014 signing class
Since the Utes had room under the 25 scholarship cap, they've gone ahead and signed Pita Tonga (6-2, 270), a defensive tackle from Highland H.S., Thor Katoa (6-2, 220), a linebacker out of Pine View H.S., Kyle Christiansen (6-4, 320), a defensive tackle out of Mountain Crest H.S., and Amone Finau (6-2, 180) out of Kearns H.S.
Finau could play running back, safety or receiver.
The players will still go on missions as planned and their National Letters of Intent still become void after a year, meaning they must re-sign with the Utes when they return and they still have the option of going elsewhere.<
The Utes still have one scholarship available. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said they'll use it on the "best player available."
