SALT LAKE CITY — Recruiting is the lifeblood of any collegiate program, and it's no different for the University of Utah football program.

Below is a brief look at who has already committed to Utah, as well as some players to be on the lookout for in the coming months.

Check back often to see how the 2025 recruiting class takes shape.
