Albritton Favoring The Utes

Justing Albritton is closing in one fifteen offers, but is loving the attention he gets from Utah...

Anahuac (TX) athlete Justin Albritton is one of the top all around players in the state of Texas with the ability to play four different positions. The utility-man is closing in on 15 offers, but has one school standing out above the rest.

"My recruitment is going pretty good. It's going about as I expected it to be and I've enjoyed it. So far I have offers from Utah, Lamar, Purdue, McNeese State, Texas State and a few others. There are like 13 schools total that have offered. When it is time to choose and pick it's going to be hard to make that final decision, but Utah is my number one pick."

Utah's constant contact with Albritton has been a positive in his eyes and has helped distance the Utes from other schools that have offered.

"First, it's the communication with the coaches. We e-mail every day. The communication is very positive. The other schools, they don't really communicate like Utah does. The Utah coaches show that they are very interested in me and they really care for their players. Lately I've been talking to Coach Scalley and Coach Hill over e-mail."

The 5-11, 183 pound Albritton, who plays running back and safety in high school and is being recruited as an athlete, makes no issue with trying out new positions and finding the right spot.

"I'm an athlete. I'll play anywhere that the coaches put me. Wherever they put me, I'll be able to play. Wherever Coach Scalley wants me to play, I'll play. If they want to move me around, I'll play where they put me."

The Texas athlete is also high on Utah's ability to put defensive backs into the NFL in recent years consistently.

"Thew have talked to me about that. It is something I really like about Utah."

Albritton is putting winning high on his list of priorities wanting to play for a school that prides itself on its success.

"I'm looking for a school with a good academic program, a winning tradition, and a team that really wants to win."

Albritton, who has never been to Salt Lake City, will be visiting late in the season, a visit that could lead to quick commitment.

"I haven't been out to Utah, but I'm coming out for my official visit in November. I'm just waiting to see the environment and take my official visit to see where I'm going to be and how I fit in before I commit anywhere."
