Things are starting to heat up for the Utah Utes football program as coaches put together their 2024 signing class.

On Saturday evening, Utes received a commitment from California linebacker Ashtin Kekahuna-Lopes, marking the third commitment Utah has gotten this month already.

Listed by 247 at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Kekahuna-Lopes is designated as a 3-star prospect by the website and plays for national power St. John Bosco High.

He received interest from numerous Pac-12 and Mountain West programs, along with Boston College, Charlotte and Weber State.

In June, Kekahuna-Lopes posted on Twitter that he took an official visit to Utah and then Oregon State a short time later.

Kekahuna-Lopes becomes the sixth player to be pledged to the Utes as part of their 2024 recruiting class so far.
