Travis Wilson was announced as the starting quarterback today over Oklahoma transfer Kendal Thompson. On the defensive side, three positions are still too close to call. At left end, Jason Fanaika and Hunter Dimick are neck-and-neck; there's a three-way battle at nose tackle among Sese Ianu, Clint Shepard and Lowell Lotulelei; and at stud linebacker, Uaea Masina and Pita Taumoepenu are deadlocked. On special teams, Kaelin Clay and Bubba Poole are currently listed co-starters at punt returner.


Dominique Hatfield will play both ways for the Utes this season. The sophomore wide receiver began taking reps with the corners last week when starter Reginald Porter suffered a season-ending knee injury and is now in the two deep at both receiver and corner. Hatfield played both positions in high school and had eight interceptions his senior season at Crenshaw High (Calif.) ... Sam Tevi, who played defensive tackle as a true freshman last year, was moved permanently to offensive tackle last week and has already cracked the two deep at right tackle ... Pita Taumoepenu has moved from defensive end to linebacker and is the co-starter this week at stud and backup at rover linebacker ... Tight end Wallace Gonzalez is experimenting at defensive end. Listed as the co-backup at right end this week with another former tight end, Greg Reese, Gonzalez will remain a tight end on the roster for now ... Impressive walk-on wide receiver Tim Patrick is the new starter at Z receiver ... True freshman Travonne Hobbs wants to officially be called by his nickname Boobie Hobbs.
