Utah's recruiting class filling up with linemen, running backs
First Published Feb 06 2013 09:50 am • Last Updated Feb 06 2013 09:50 am

It isn't even 10 a.m. and the Utes are almost done with their recruiting class.

The running back group already looks solid, with Troy McCormick, a 5-9, 159-pound back out of Houston, Texas and Devontae Booker, a 5-11, 199-pound back out of Sacramento, Calif. among the signees.

Also signing is De'Vian Young, a 5-9, 171-pound freshman out of Houston, Texas.

Speaking of Texas, the Utes have made the state a priority area in recent seasons. It seems to be paying off, at least in numbers, with seven players from Texas signing so far.

In a change from past signing rules, players who have committed to the Utes but won't enroll during the 2013-14 aren't allowed to sign national letters of intent and the maximum number of signees permitted through the signing period (Dec. 1-May 31) is 25 this year, down from 28 a year ago, so expect the announcements that several of Utah's committed players will be heading out on missions or will walk on.
