Utah is off to an early start in recruiting with already four players committed from the state of Utah.  Utah's first commit, Isaac Asiata, committed before even Utah's 2010 recruiting class had signed.  He is a local product from Spanish Fork High school who is drawing attention from top schools in the West.

Ranked as a 4-star, No. 10 guard in the country by Scout.com, Asiata looks to be a great prospect for Utah.  He is on the Rivals250 watch list for 2011 as well.

Asiata is a big, strong lineman.  For a high school athlete, he already has ideal size at the Division 1 level.  He is a very good run blocker with his ability to push opponents at will.  That is the strong point of his game.  Experts will agree.

"As his reel started, I tried to find No. 59 on the field. What I did see was a bone crushing hit about 10 yards past the line of scrimmage," said Warren Lent, a recruiting expert for ThaRinger.com.  "After the wreckage, I checked for the number of the lineman who laid down the monstrous hit and sure enough, it was No. 59 Isaac Asiata. Despite only having two offers, this kid is the real deal. I love his athleticism, and he can only get better heading to a program like Utah's. His strength is the best part of his game. On every play, it seemed like he could push his opponent at will."  

Asiata participated in the U.S. Army Combine where he did well.  He made the Combine All-Lobby Team for his outstanding performance.  He looks to be a blue-chip type of player and will likely get more attention once Rivals and ESPN put out their rankings.

He was named first team all state by Deseret News and The Salt Lake Tribune as a junior in high school.
