CORNERBACKS

The Lowdown
With the Utes using the nickel package more often than ever before, it's no accident they have loaded up on defensive backs and cornerbacks coach Sharrieff Shah has speed, experience and depth at his position.

Headliners Returning
Senior Eric Rowe, already one of the best safeties in the league, will also play corner this season, where his 6'1", 201-pound frame and 4.39 40 speed (best of Utah's DBs) will be an advantage. Sophomore Reginald Porter (4.43 40 speed) is an emerging star, as is sophomore nickel back Justin Thomas (4.48 40).

 

 

Newcomer Spotlight
Travonne Hobbs and Casey Hughes are first-team all-state signees from Louisiana and Nevada.

Coach Whittingham Says
"Both Reggie Porter and Justin Thomas had exceptional spring camps and the addition of Eric Rowe should make this a solid group for us. Davion Orphey played good football for us last fall and we are excited about the addition of our incoming freshman corners."
