Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham was reluctant to say who might have separated themselves from their teammates at Friday's scrimmage. (Story here.)
He wants to look at the tape. He wants to get it right.
But that's no fun, is it?
With the Jeremiah Poutasi-sized caveat that this is the opinion of one unathletic sports reporter at The Tribune, here are a few guys who may have moved up the board with their play Friday and in recent practices.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Conner Manning
Last year, coaches weighed pulling Manning's redshirt and said, at least initially, that they felt junior Adam Schulz gave them the best chance to win. Is that still the case? If you judged from Friday's performances alone, no. Manning not only connected on a higher percentage of his passes — 9-of-16 compared to 1-of-7 — but among his incompletions were near-misses that might have been touchdowns.
