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).
I’d like to thank my parents, coaches, and teammates for their support through the recruitment process. With that being said, I’d like to announce that I am 100% committed to the University of Utah! #goutes @TomLoy247 @ChadSimmons_ pic.twitter.com/ElGYlMt67a— Cole Bishop (@Cole_bishop_8) October 31, 2020
