Hooker Finds His Spot

Hooker Finds His Spot

LB Reshawn Hooker committed to Utah after visiting over the weekend..

The sweet sounds of the recruiting season continued Wednesday with the commitment of 3 star linebacker Reshawn Hooker committing to Utah, giving the Utes 4 commitments from players that visited this past weekend.

Hooker made his pledge this afternoon with a phone call to the head coach and will go over the commitment more this evening with an in-home visit.

"I called Coach Whittingham and committed. He's actually on his way over right now."

Utah fit all of the criteria that Hooker was looking for in a school, specifically they way the coaches will use him and the opportunity he'll have to be successful in the Utah defense.

"My family decided that it was the best place that I could fit in as far as football schematically. I think I'll fit in real good with their scheme and what they want to do."

Hooker stressed academics as well with Utah being the perfect place for him to succeed in the classroom.

"The education side of it things is academically sound and that is important. Also, it's not too far from home. It's far enough, but not too far."

Hooker's official visit this past weekend sealed the deal after spending time with host Brian Blechen and other members of the team.

"We went to a lot of places and went tubing. I got to spend a lot of time with some of the players. I really liked it out there."

The Stevenson Sylvester clone did have a visit planned to Oregon State planned for this weekend, but has cancelled the trip.

"I'm all done."
