The Utes are the latest school to offer the rising linebacker prospect.
"It was definitely a surprise for me," Head acknowledged about his first Power 5 offer. "Coach (Guy) Holliday told me I had the offer and he told me about the program and how it's a good fit for me.
"He said I have the same type of playing style that the previous linebacker had."
As a freshman for the Blue Dragons last season, Head finished with 79 tackles, six sacks, 13 tackles-for-loss and one interception from his outside linebacker spot.
"I can play both outside spots, but I am more of a weakside guy," Head noted. "I tackle well. I can cover the field and I'm good coming off the edge blitzing.
"My coaches use me in different ways and I think that's what really helps me have an impact on the game."
As a prep at Mary Persons High School in Forsyth, Georgia, Head was a sought-after player, but his academics kept him from qualifying so he decided to go the JUCO route.
"The coaches here are great and I already knew someone (Tre Willis) who was here and felt good about the opportunities here,": Head recalled. "It was just the right fit for me and it's worked out."
Head will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2017 football season.
