The Utah football depth at quarterback is reportedly getting thinner.

Rivals reported Tuesday that freshman Peter Costelli is entering the NCAA transfer portal.

Costelli has not played a down in his Utah career, as he’s been stuck on the depth chart below quarterbacks like Charlie Brewer — who also entered the transfer portal — Cameron Rising and Ja’Quinden Jackson. Rising, a sophomore, took over for Brewer in the team’s third game and has led the Utes to an 8-3 record, including 7-1 in Pac-12 Conference play.

The 6-foot-3, 216-pound Costelli was a ballyhooed signee with the Utes in their 2021 recruiting class as a four-star prospect out of Mission Viejo High in California. He was rated the nation’s No. 10 dual-threat QB prospect in that class, according to 247 Sports.
