Utah loads up in secondary, pleasantly surprised at receiver

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The defensive secondary was the clear priority for the Utah Utes after losing three starting cornerbacks to expiring eligibility and safety Marcus Williams to early-entry into the NFL draft.

Jaylon Johnson headlines the group with a four-star ranking from 247Sports Composite. The No. 11 cornerback in the country had offers from Michigan, California, Nebraska, Georgia, Oregon, USC and others, according to 247Sports. Blinn College transfer Corrion Ballard also received a four-star ranking and is already enrolled. Tareke Lewis is a three-star transfer from Riverside Community College and Javelin Guidry is a speedster from Vista Murrieta (Calif.) High School that had offers from Texas, Houston, Arizona State and Oregon State.

"We lost probably 90 percent of our secondary with the four corners and Marcus Williams," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. "That was obviously a point of emphasis.
