Utes had at least one player drafted to NFL, MLB and NBA

With the Lakers' selection after a trade for the rights to Kyle Kuzma in the NBA draft Thursday, the Utah Utes had one or more players drafted to the NFL, MLB and NBA this year.

A tweet from @redditCFB noted that Utah is one of just 23 schools that had a combined 10 or more players drafted to the three leagues.

Utah had 13 players selected, tied for seventh place among all schools, with eight in the NFL draft, four in the MLB draft and just Kuzma in the NBA draft.

Of the 23 schools, the University of Michigan had the most athletes drafted in the three sports, with 23 athletes, and four schools filled out the bottom of the list with 10.
