The Utah Utes football program got its second commitment of the weekend on Sunday.
On Saturday, 2023 prospect Mack Howard announced his pledge, and on Sunday the Utes got a pledge from a player who could help more immediately, as former Illinois State safety Clayton Isbell announced his commitment on Twitter.
Proud to announce I am 100% committed to The University of Utah ‼️🔴⚫️ #GOUTES @Utah_Football @UtahCoachWhitt @SafetyPride pic.twitter.com/VLzAo5SZqK— CLAYTON ISBELL (@claytonisbell10) March 27, 2022
Listed by Illinois State at 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, Isbell had entered the transfer portal after the 2021 season and was reported to have received interest from numerous Power Five schools.
That came after a sophomore season in which Isbell totaled the 62 tackles and three interceptions.
A native of Naperville, Illinois, Isbell is expected to be eligible to play for the Utes this fall. He has two years of eligibility remaining in all.
Isbell joins a safeties unit that is rather young but has gotten some solid game experience.
