Utes at a glance

Racket’n Utes have up and down day in Boise

The Ute men’s tennis team had success in the semifinals at the ITA Mountain Regional Competition before failing to get a win in the championships later in the day.

Miron Mann, Ryan Scott and Wes Hancock all posted singles victories over Boise State, with teams of Mann and Zach Ganger and Jason Yap and Tomasz Grzyb picking up doubles wins.

In the overall team competition, the Utes beat Boise State in the semis 4-3.5 on the Broncos’ home court.

Utes get three more commitments

Following a big weekend of on-campus visits, Kyle Whittingham’s program received oral commitments from three high school players.

Walter Watts, son of the Walter Watts who played basketball for the U in the early ’90s is a 6-foot-2-inch, 300-pound offensive lineman out of Los Banos, Calif. He had originally committed to UCLA but changed his mind after getting persistent attention from the Utes. He was ranked the 45th-best high school senior in California by recruiting site before the season. Watts plans to play offensive guard in college.

Also giving their commitments were two Utah Valley products. Zeke Wiley, a 6-foot-5-inch defensive tackle from Orem High School, chose the Utes over offers from Oregon and BYU, while Mountain View offensive lineman Peter Tuitupou plans to serve an LDS mission before joining the Utes.
