Mohamoud Diabate or Gabe Reid? Clayton Isbell, Landon Morris or Logan Kendall?
What about recent JUCO transfers Luca Caldarella, Jadon Pearson and Ti’Quan Gilmore?
All of the aforementioned players have transferred or are expected to transfer to the University of Utah ahead of the 2023 college football season, but which one will be the most important addition for the Utes come the fall?
The answer obviously won’t actually be determined until the season itself, but it is prediction season right now, and according to 247 Sports’ Will Backus the answer is Diabate, the former Florida linebacker.
