Utah Utes football: Star QB commits to Utes

SHARE Utah Utes football: Star QB commits to Utes

Jordan Wynn, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound quarterback from Oceanside High School in California, has given the University of Utah an early recruiting commitment. He plans to graduate in December and join the Utes in January.

"I love the system at Utah," Wynn said. "It's a perfect fit for me."

Wynn originally committed to Colorado but changed his mind after thinking things over the past several weeks. He attended the Utes' 63-14 win over San Diego State last weekend and is making his official visit to Utah for Saturday's game against BYU.

Wynn led Oceanside to a state and sectional championship last season while throwing for 2,589 yards and 21 touchdowns. He's also surpassed the 2,500-yard mark as senior, guiding his team to a 9-0-1 record and the top seed in the upcoming playoffs.

Besides completing 65 percent of his passes in a spread attack similar to what Utah operates, Wynn has thrown 26 touchdown passes this season and has ran for two scores.

With Brian Johnson graduating and a chance to compete for playing time right away, Wynn decided Utah was his best option.

"I'm going to give it my best," he said of his hope to play as a true freshman.

The Utes' 11-0 season was also a "huge factor" in his decision.

"It's a better fit for me than Colorado," said Wynn, who called it a "gut feeling."

Wynn plans to room with former Oceanside teammate Sam Brenner at Utah. Brenner signed with the Utes last year, but opted to "grayshirt" while recovering from a foot injury. He was a starting left tackle for Oceanside.
