SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Improving team speed became a top priority for Utah after suffering consecutive losing seasons for the first time in 24 years.
Judging by the 2014 signing class the Utes brought in Wednesday, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham believes his team made great strides in that direction - especially in the secondary where a lack a depth and inexperience helped lead to multiple big plays and several close losses during the 2013 season.
The Utes made a concerted effort to shore up that secondary going into 2014. Out of Utah's 16 new players, six were recruited to play as defensive backs. Senior Tevin Carter headlines the new crop. He originally signed with Utah a year ago and was expected to make an impact in 2013, but he failed to qualify academically.
