Utes Look To Re-Load Defensive Line
(KUTV) The Utes have a reputation for developing elite defensive lineman. In the 90’s Luther Elliss anchored an elite d-line, Steve Fifita starred on the Utes undefeated 2004 Fiesta Bowl champs and Star Lotulelei and Joe and Dave Kruger captured the headlines the last couple of years.
But what will happen in 2005?
Kyle Whittingham believes Tenny Palepoi is a star in the making. Kyle also believes he has a JC transfer and a walk-on who are ready to carry some of the load.
Nate Fakahafua has changed his name to Nate Orchard but along with Trevor Reilley they should provide a pass rush. If Whittingham has assessed the talent correctly, now the Utes just need to develop depth.
