The Utah Utes signed three junior college players Wednesday, with tight end Greg Reese out of Arizona Western, offensive lineman Andrew Albers from Orange Coast Community College and Davion Orphey, a corner out of Santa Ana Community College, all signing with the Utes.
Utah coach kyle Whittingham said all three players should compete for starting roles since the Utes lost key players. Albers could be someone who could step in at left tackle where the Utes graduate Sam Brenner.
"He is a big, 6-7, 310 guy who has a lot of physical attributes," Whittingham said of Albers. "He could fill a big need for us."
