Utah football may be close to adding a big-time player from another Pac-12 program: Oregon's Darren Carrington.
He graduated from Oregon this spring, and is eligible to play right away for another team.
On Wednesday, columnist John Canzano of The Oregonian said that multiple Pac-12 programs expressed interest in Carrington, and that he was on a visit to Utah.
Now, Tom Hackett—a former All-American punter and Ray Guy winner for the Utes and current ESPN Radio host—says that he has heard that Carrington to Utah is a distinct possibility.
Carrington was a second team All-Pac 12 receiver in 2015. In three seasons with the Ducks, he caught 112 passes for 1,919 yards and 15 touchdowns. He has had a number of off-field issues during his collegiate career, even before this DUI, but I'm sure there are a number of teams that will take him on for one final season.
