The first big recruiting weekend of of the year is upon us as we head down the home stretch. While Utah is currently struggling a bit to land big name players to their class, they'll be bringing in quite a few highly rated players over the next few weekends.
Here are the expected visitors for this weekend:
Bray is a two star wide receiver out of Georgia, an area that Utah generally doesn't recruit, but is widely considered the fourth best state for producing prospects outside of the big three of California, Texas, and Florida. Polite-Bray is a speedster who would help the Utes in that regard, while also developing in-roads in the south. His teammate and good friend, offensive lineman Joshua Outlaw, visited Utah in November and has the Utes in his final six. The two have stated that they would like to play together at the next level, but a decision isn't expected until later this month.
The running back commit out of Las Vegas put up gaudy numbers this past season. Williams committed to the Utes over the summer and has held strong in his verbal. Not an instant impact guy with a load of backs already of ahead of him, Williams will add depth for the foreseeable future.
Cornerback Hipolito Corporan has been committed to Virginia for quite some time, but Utah is bringing him in and will have a great chance to flip the DB with good size and speed. Don't be surprised if he commits over the weekend or shortly after.
Kenneth Santa Marina
Utah still needs one more high school offensive lineman, and Santa Marina is a beast. He's friends with current Utah commit and other visitor Carlos Henderson. Santa Marina is committed to Tulane at the moment, but is probably Utah's best shot at getting another high school lineman in this class.
The Utah commit is the younger brother of safety Charles Henderson. He's an elite athlete and one of the top players in the state of Louisiana. Being on campus with Santa Marina gives him a chance to help Utah bring in the big man.
The four star linebacker out of Texas is currently committed to UCLA, but the Utes have been able to get him out for a visit. He'd be an instant impact player for Utah, but Utah's chances of getting him to flip his commitment are very slim.
