His second visit is in the books.
Three-star RB Jalen Ortiz from Peoria (Ariz.) Centennial tripped to the University of Utah and witnessed the Utes pull off a 24-21 win over rival BYU.
Ortiz comments, "The gameday atmosphere and the fans there are crazy."
He continues, "It (the trip) was legit. I liked it a lot. Utah's coaches are big on family and academics so that was very cool to hear as well."
Ortiz (5-9 170) is having a great year for the 4-0 and #1 ranked Coyotes. He has rushed for 333 yards and 5 scores on just 31 carries. He also has caught 9 passes for 100 yards and another score.
The success of his team is vital but he has also squeezed in time for two official visits (other trip was to UCLA) and has two more scheduled. "I would rate the visit to Utah an 8," he says. "Both of my visits great, left me with a lot to think about before my decision."
Ortiz will also visit Boise State and Washington.
Centennial plays Suprise Willow Canyon (3-1) this Friday.
