Welcome to Utah.Scout.com

My name is Brian Swinney and I'll be running your website and message boards going forward

Welcome to Scout.Utah.com. We're looking into changing the name or the site from UtesRecruiting.com to InsideUtes.com or something along those lines in the coming days so expect that shortly. Premium memberships will also be available soon, giving you insight into all things Utes that you won't find on the current free boards. Things will probably start out a little slow for the first few weeks while I gain my footing running the site and because of the down time in Ute athletics, so bare with me. As soon as fall football camp opens in August, expect an onslaught of information and analysis of all things Utes throughout the year. As I entrench myself further into the game of recruiting, I'll be bringing you as much Utah recruiting news as I can get my hands on as well. Expect big things for the Utes in the future as they make the jump from the Mountain West Conference to the Pac 10/12 in 2011. I'm excited to be a part of it and excited to have all you along for the ride. It's a good time to be a Ute and Ute fan.

A little about myself:

I'm a local Utahn, and have been so on and off for the past six years. I currently work with Sports Radio 1280 the Zone in Salt Lake City on the production side of things, but hope to be on the air shortly (more news on that to come next few weeks, hopefully). I covered Utah football in 2009 as a field reporter and will be doing the same again this year and beyond. Born and raised in California, I'm a UCLA fan, but attended school at the U and am inching ever closer to Ute allegiance each year (which will make things hard starting in 2011). I'm married with 2 kids and couldn't be happier to be heading up this site.
