Utah hosted their second official visit weekend of the year, this time with only one player coming in. That player is JC running back Cameron Artis-Payne, who would help a position group that loses its superstar in John White after this season.
"My visit went really well. I there on Thursday night and got back last night. They have a real good program. I like the coaching staff, offensive coordinator, and running back caoch. They have a very friendly atmosphere there and take care of their players."
Artis-Payne was hosted by fellow running back Lucky Radley, who made sure he got to see everything that Utah has to offer.
"They took me around to see the stadium, the campus, and the surrounding Area. Lucky and I got to hang out. He's a cool guy."
The 5-11, 210 pounder came to Salt Lake City hoping to get an offer, and walked away with a coveted Pac 12 scholarship.
"They offered me during the visit. Coach Whittingham called me into his office and had the offer waiting there for me."
The offer could result in a quick commitment, helping Utah get an immediate impact back.
"I'm definitely thinking about committing, but I need to talk to my father about it this week. Utah is my leader though."
Artis Payne, who also has offers from Utah State and New Mexico, is working hard in the classroom and is on trac to graduate in a few months.
"I'll be graduating in December and have 3 years to play 2."
