Utah State is starting the year off with an important recruiting weekend to start things off.
Two very important positions this recruiting class are Linebacker and Wide Receiver. The Aggies have some good prospects at the positions but would like to close the deal to add to the young group coming back next year.
It is no secret that Ustate loses the majority of their receiving production and all 4 starting Linebackers will not return next year. The addition of Drew Lewis or Justus Tei would be very important to add to the Linebacker depth. Drew Lewis may be more ready to play after spending ayear at Washington then Coffeyville CC last year.
Replacing all 4 linebackers seems like it will be job number one so there will still be more linebackers visiting in the coming weeks as well.
The WR Corps would equally be bolstered by the addition of John Okwoli or Mekhi Stevenson. Craig Rucker has already commited and is also a dynamic playmaker.
Tre Miller is the only instate visitor and after going through a lot of drama with BYU offering and pulling their offer he has an offer and visit setup.
He will serve an LDS mission but could play next year possibly depending on which school he chooses.
