Utah Utes Game Notes
Utah received a verbal commitment from 2023 four-star WR Carlos Wilson. One of the biggest targets for the Pac-12, Wilson (5'11/165) decided on the Utes. He selected Utah over Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, and Colorado among his 13 offers. During his junior season, Wilson caught 32 passes for six touchdowns while averaging an impressive 19.8 yards per catch. Wilson is the 22nd-ranked athlete and the 21st-overall player in the state of California per 24/7 Sports.
Florida Gators Game Notes
Florida junior WR Ricky Pearsall (foot) is considered day-to-day. According to 247Sports, Pearsall (6'1"/200) suffered the injury on Wednesday and was initially feared to be a broken metatarsal. However X-rays revealed he only suffered two bone bruises and avoided a potentially serious injury that could have drastically affected his availability this year. Pearsall led Arizona State with 48 receptions, 580 yards and four touchdowns last year and has drawn rave reviews in camp, so this is a very fortunate development for the Gators' passing game. Florida gets a big test in their season opener against Pac-12 favorite Utah.
