Utah football is gearing up for the class of 2024. Their latest commitment hails from Sammie Hunter, a three-star cornerback prospect. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound talent is a product of Chandler High School situated in Chandler, Arizona.
In conversation with Blair Angulo of 247Sports, Hunter expressed his dreams of playing on the grandest stages. The back-to-back Pac-12 championships and past two trips to the Rose Bowl by Utah caught his attention.
He commended Utah’s football record and the outstanding work of coach Kyle Whittingham in developing young talent. Originally not from the West Coast, Hunter has developed an affinity for it, appreciating the short flights it will afford his parents for home games.
Hunter’s junior season at Chandler chalked up impressive figures indeed. As per MaxPreps stats, he contributed a total of 21 tackles and deflected four passes.
Hunter found a home in Utah amidst offers from Iowa State and Washington State. His commitment is part of a broader strategic move by Utah, as he becomes the fifth player to commit to their 2024 class.
Among the new roster, beside Hunter, is four-star quarterback Isaac Wilson. The class also includes three-star defensive lineman Vili Taufatofoa. Jeilani Davis, a three-star safety, is on board as well. The final member is three-star linebacker Hunter Andrews. This class of 2024 is promisingly diverse and dynamic in scope. The Utah football team looks forward to the value they bring to the table.
