High school quarterback Brandon Cox, who de-committed from the Arizona Wildcats last week, pledged to attend Utah on Sunday.
Cox, a three-star recruit from Pasadena (Calif.) High School, committed to Arizona in the summer but then took a recruiting visit to Utah earlier this month when the Utes played host to USC. He decided to open up his recruitment last week, and it’s not much of a surprise he ended up with Utah.
Cox also was able to talk to Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham and offensive coordinator Brian Johnson after the Utes’ loss at UCLA on Saturday.
“I liked their loyalty,” Cox told the Salt Lake Tribune. “I was impressed with all the former Utes on the staff, that is big with me.”
Arizona has two other quarterbacks in its 2013 recruiting class — Anu Solomon of Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas and Tommy Woodson from Gateway High in Monroeville, Pa. Solomon is considered one of the centerpieces of the recruiting class, rated a four-star recruit by Rivals.com.
