Safety looks solid, where coach Morgan Scalley has two all-conference candidates and a heralded newcomer.
Utah has one of the best safety tandems in the country returning in seniors Eric Rowe at free safety and Brian Blechen at strong safety. Both are four-year starters and former Freshman All-Americans.
Coach Whittingham Says
"Getting Brian Blechen back from injury is a positive and returning starter Eric Rowe is expected to split time as both a safety and a corner. The addition of Tevin Carter brings another element of size and speed to the position."
