James Aiono, Snow College's highly touted defensive lineman who signed with the Utes and was expected in camp this week, won't join the team until January due to some remaining academic requirements he must meet, according to Utah coach Kyle Whittingham.

Aiono, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound All-American, was expected to contend for a starting role. He'll still have two years of eligibility remaining.

Two other JC transfers, receiver Ray Magee and defensive back Maxwell Lacy, are also finishing academic work and won't be with the team when camp opens Wednesday but are expected to join the team for the 2009 season.

The Utes report Wednesday and hold their first practice on Thursday. Practices are closed to the general public.
