With Utah's need for cornerbacks, 2014's Adarius Picket won't be able to help in a couple of years should be pick the Utes. If he does though, they'll have a possible immediate impact player coming in.
"My recruitment is going good. I've been in contact with a lot of schools in the Pac 12 and all over the country."
His main interest has been coming from the Pac 12, but that could expand as he gets further into his junior year.
"I'm hearing from Arizona State, Cal, UCLA, Georigia, Wisconsin, Colorado, Mississippi and a few others."
Picket has only one offer to this point, and is enjoying the budding relationship with that school.
"The Utes are my only offer. I love talking to coach Tuiaki and I like Utah. He seems like a good guy and it's a good team and school."
Picket will be taking a long look at the depth chart before making a decision on where he'll be headed.
"The most important things to me are academics, depth chart and location."
While playing 3 different spots for his high school team, Picket is excelling mostly on the defensive side.
"I'm being recruited as a cornerback, but I also play running back and wide receiver. I prefer to play corner in college."
The 5-11, 183 pounder has already made a few visits to Pac 12 schools and will be trying to visit more in the near future.
"I've been to Stanford and Cal. I'll be at the Cal game on November 6th. I'm also trying to get up to Utah, UCLA, and Oregon in the next couple of months."
Utah Is the First For Picket
