A week before the Utah football program is set to kick off its 2020 season, it got a commitment for its 2021 recruiting class from a prospect who was previously committed to another Power Five school.

Georgia safety Cole Bishop announced his pledge to the program via Twitter, a declaration that came two weeks after he decommitted from Duke (he had committed to the Blue Devils in late March).

Listed by 247 Sports at 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Bishop is designated as a 3-star prospect. According to 247 Sports, he also holds scholarship offers from a number of Power Five programs around the country.

A senior at Starr’s Mill High School in Fayetteville, Georgia, Bishop becomes the 13th prospect to commit to the Utes as part of their 2021 recruiting class.
