Utah will host a bevy of recruits on the second to last weekend of the recruiting season

The Utes bring in multiple prospects committed to other programs for a big recruiting weekend.

Bill has been dead silent since the summer after looking like a Utah lean. He's a versatile local prospect that could end up on either side of the ball. The Corner Canyon Charger has expressed a desire to play on defense and that may end up being a big factor in his decision. Utah is open to him playing either spot at this point. Bills is a possible sign and send who will decide between Utah, BYU, Stanford, and Oregon State.

Utah was Hall's first offer following a tremendous showing at the 2014 Ute Shoot. A BYU legacy though, Hall committed to the Cougars and hasn't wavered in that commitment. With a mission pending, he'll have 2+ years to think things over and reassess where he wants to be after he completes his service. A flip to Utah would be a surprise, but the Utes are playing the long-game, making sure he knows what they have to offer upon his return.

Maka has been silent throughout his recruitment. What he's thinking or where he'll land is anyone's guess.

Moss is a Utah commit that has flirted with a few other schools, namely Tennessee. He'll visit the Volunteers the final weekend of the cycle (which can be scary), but the Florida prospect has insisted that he's committed to Utah and just wants to check out some other places to see what they're like. With two high school teammates committed and already enrolled in Demari Simpkins and Tyler Huntley, Moss will get the full court press from his teammates this weekend.

Pututau has been viewed as a long-time Utah lean, especially with his brother set to come off of a mission and join the team for 2016. He's visited BYU unofficially and has a visit to Oregon State scheduled, but we'd be surprised if the sign and send ended up anywhere but Utah.

Taufa has had an odd recruitment that has seen him commit to Utah, flip to Kansas, and then back to Utah. He's been solid in that commitment and we don't expect him to waver despite a scheduled visit to Utah State next weekend.

Taumoelau is a prospect and visitor that caught us by surprise. He's a commit to Oregon State (anyone else noticing a Utah, BYU, Oregon State theme here?) that plays for Brighton High School. Kyle Whittingham's daughter is a cheerleader at Brighton, so Whittingham has seen him play quite a few times. No insight on his recruitment right now.

Tooley is an intriguing prospect and someone that looked like they were locked in with BYU, but Utah has continue to stay in contact, and having former Utah wide receiver John Madsen as his personal trainer let's him pick the brain of the former Ute. A flip wouldn't be as big of a shock as Jaren Hall doing so, but it would still be a surprise. Tooley is a sign and send prospect, so again, this is another long-game visit for the Utes.

The Golden Goose of the weekend visitors, Trinnaman is an instant impact wide receiver from the JC ranks. Despite a commitment to BYU, he's continued to show interest in the Utes with Utah appearing to have the lead at times in a back and forth recruitment. The hiring of Guy Holliday gave the Utes a leg-up, but the Cougars countered with the hiring of Ben Cahoon, who Trinnaman has done private workouts with. This one will be a battle that comes down until the final week.
