So we’re two practices in to Utah Football Spring Practice 2012. And what have we learned?
Well like most every school in the country, everything looks fantastic and we’re sure to win the national title.
First Jordan Wynn has put on weight and it appears to all be in his arms. Guess who has two tickets to the gun show? Jordan does that’s who. All reports seem to indicate that he’s throwing the ball as well as he ever has and does really appear to be healed. Now if only Mr. Glass can only stay that way.
As for the two kids who’ve come in to compete with Mr. Wynn, all comments seem to be looking good as well. Both Kyle and our child OC Brian Johnson like how they’re both competing and picking things up. The sense that you get is that Mr. Hays will not be seeing the field this fall. Perhaps if we tried to use redshirts on both Hansen and Wilson, then Hays becomes our mop up guy to get Jordan out of blowouts. Also from reports, my guess is that Travis Wilson is a bit ahead of Chase Hansen right now, but that could change.
All things look good in the backfield and the receivers. John White is still John White, Kelvin York has been a bit slower to pick things up because he’s new and Harvey Langi seems a bit behind them. The receivers look great especially with the edition of Anthony Denham.
The defensive line looks to be where we may have gotten even better. The Kruger brothers have gotten even bigger and stronger to join potential All-American Star Lotulelei and Nate Fakahafua looks like the favorite to star at left end.
The final question would have to be about child OC Brian Johnson’s offense. What we do know is that Brian wants to be aggressive and that John White says it will have multiple formations and he likes to spread the ball around. So its somewhere between Chow and Urban Meyer. Hopefully we’ll know more after the scrimmage tomorrow.
So there is your Ute Football Fix for the day.
