Heading into the Utah spring game, here are five things to watch for during the scrimmage on Saturday. Watch For The Three Quarterbacks In Spring Game
Five Things To Watch For During Utah’s Spring Football Game The quarterback that has received the most hype since Tyler Huntley is Baylor transfer Charlie Brewer. He will suit up on Saturday for the red team and will have Texas transfer Ja’Quinden Jackson as his backup. Those two plus 2021 recruit Peter Costelli on the black team are the three quarterbacks to keep an eye on.
Don’t discount Costelli or Jackson. Those two will be having battles for the third quarterback spot and are the Utah signal callers of the future. Will be fun to see how they perform in this type of setting. Going into the 2020 season, the position group(s) with the most concern in preseason was the secondary. With all of the starters from the 2019 team gone to either graduation or the NFL, it was a clean slate for the secondary. The newcomers and new starters performed really well last season and gained some valuable experience without losing any eligibility.

It will be Utah fans’ first chance to see Brewer in action. This will make for a tremendous quarterback competition with Cameron Rising in the fall.
Clark Phillips III, Aaron Lowe, Faybian Marks, LaCarea Pleasant-Johnson and Kenzel Lawler will be the cornerbacks for the black team, along with safeties Stone Azarcon, Nick Billoups, Cole Bishop and Vonte Davis. For the red team, keep an eye out for JaTravis Broughton, Malone Mataele, Drew Rawls and Zemaiah Vaughn at the corner position. The safeties will be Dakota Hansen, R.J. Hubert, Kamo’i Latu and Bleu Stewart. Utah Wide Receiver Group
It’s unlikely that Covey and Enis will play a ton in the spring game, which will allow the younger guys to shine. Ben Renfro moved over from safety to wide receiver to fill some depth issues during spring football as did Caine Savage from cornerback to receiver. Renfro is on the red team and Savage is on the black team. Vonte Davis is the only starter in the secondary that is a senior so the future is obviously bright for this group moving forward.
Devaughn Vele has received some high praise from Kyle Whittingham during spring ball. He is on the red team. Other guys to watch for on the black team, includes freshman Makai Cope and Money Parks. It will be interesting to see how these guys perform after a full spring ball under new receivers coach Chad Bumphis. Vonte Davis is the only starter in the secondary that is a senior so the future is obviously bright for this group moving forward.
