Matt Stowell, the record-setting sprinter from East High School, has signed a letter of intent with Utah State University.

Stowell, the two-time 400-meter state champion, set a 4A state record of 47.79 last spring. He will compete in the Youth Nationals this weekend in Spokane and in the junior Olympic national championships July 26-29 in Lincoln, Neb. Stowell won the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes at last weekend's state junior Olympic championships at East High."Matt's a great athlete, and once we get him in our year-round program we think he'll be an even better runner," says USU coach Greg Gensel. "He was our No. 1 sprint recruit."
