Utah safeties coach and recruiting coordinator Morgan Scalley said the Utes “very rarely” end up signing a full class of 25 players — due to returned missionaries and awarding walk-on scholarships — and this year’s class size will be “about average.” The focuses are offensive line, wide receiver, pass-rushing defensive ends, linebackers and cornerbacks.

2015 commits that The Tribune knows of at this time: wide receivers Brandon Snell, Donzale Roddie, Justice Murphy; athletes Michael Jacquet and Tuli Wily-Matagi; offensive linemen Jake Grant and Zach Lindsay; linebacker Cody Barton; and kicker Chayden Johnston.
