A little over two weeks ago, the Utah football program received a commitment from a 6-foot-7 prospect whose first love was basketball in Pleasant Grove’s Isaac Vaha.
On Monday, the Utes got another pledge from a player with a similar story, as 6-foot-8 Arizona offensive lineman Zereoue Williams announced his commitment via Twitter.

The Arizona Republic reported in October 2019 that Williams just started playing football for the first time since seventh grade, but before he even played a game, he already had multiple Power Five scholarship offers thanks to some film that had been dispersed.
According to 247 Sports, the 250-pound Williams, who attends Mountain Pointe High School in the Phoenix area, now holds offers from Arizona State, Boston College, Florida State, Iowa State, Missouri, Oregon State and Tennessee, in addition to Utah.
Williams becomes the 14th prospect to commit to the Utes as part of their 2021 recruiting class and second since Saturday after Georgia safety Cole Bishop announced his pledge.
