USU's final visits

Look for at least 15 high school football players to make a visit to Utah State this weekend as Aggie football coach Gary Andersen puts the finishing touches on his second class of recruits.

A source close to the football program has informed the Deseret News that most of those coming to Logan are recruits that have already made verbal commitments to Andersen. But not all of them.

Fullerton (Calif.) High running back Joseph Hill will join the recruiting party as will Juan Diego safety Frankie Sutera and Bingham safety Travis McKrae. McRae had 81 tackles and seven interceptions for the 5A champion miners while Sutera had 85 tackles and five picks for the 3A champ Soaring Eagle. Those players, the source said, could be offered preferred walk-on positions with USU though Hill is getting more attention lately and could be offered one of the final scholarships Andersen has to give out.

Expected to be in Logan this weekend at players such as Alex Hart, Keegan Andersen, Bryce Walker and Jordunn Mattinson.

One key recruit scheduled to come in is Nevin Lawson — considered a good get from Florida and a solid defensive back with tremendous speed and athleticism. Lawson has already given USU a verbal commitment and Andersen, the source said, is making a home visit with him early this week.

One thing is for certain, Andersen and his coaching staff will be busy over the next 10 days.
