The Utah Utes are losing another wide receiver to the transfer portal.

Multiple outlets reported Friday afternoon that Samson Nacua, who has played four seasons for the Utes but has one year of eligibility remaining because of the pandemic, has entered the portal.

A short time after the reports surfaced, Nacua announced his decision on Twitter.

Listed at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, Nacua, a Timpview High graduate, has caught 82 passes for 1,015 yards and 11 touchdowns in his career.

At the beginning of February, another Utah receiver, Bryan Thompson, announced he was transferring, and he has since committed to Arizona State.
