Damian Alloway worked out for another Pac-12 school in recent days, the coaches liked what they saw and the 2016 prospect has landed another big offer.
Utah is the latest program to offer the 2016 prospect from Fontana (Calif.) Summit who is playing more wide receiver in addition to also being a running back.
Alloway said he had a great experience working with the Utah coaches and it's something that definitely interests him early in his recruitment.
"I went to their camp and they liked what they saw and they decided to offer me a scholarship," Alloway said.
"It was really nice. I got a lot of work with the wide receivers coach. We had a quick talk and he said I have a lot of skills that he would really like to work with if I did go to Utah. What he really wants to do is mold it. He said once I get to the college level he would like to mold it and get me better."
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound prospect has had an exciting off-season. Utah is the latest to offer and Alloway has also picked up Cal, UCLA, Washington and Washington State.
Normally a running back, coaches have been intrigued with Alloway's potential as a slot receiver so he's also impressed at that position.
"I know I'm labeled as a wide receiver so when coaches do call me they say they want to try me at slot receiver and then motion me into the backfield so I can get some hand-offs," Alloway said.
"If I do play receiver I could do it but I really need to start working on my craft. This is the first year I've really played receiver."
More interest is coming in for Alloway, who said USC, Oregon, Stanford, Oklahoma and Notre Dame have all reached out. After a strong performance in a 7on7 tournament at USC, the Trojans are way more in the mix and it's a big deal to the 2016 standout.
"My Ground Zero team went to the USC tournament and we actually won the whole thing and after that I talked to all the coaches," Alloway said. "Coach (Peter) Sirmon said he was definitely going to keep in touch and I got to meet coach (Steve Sarkisian) and he told me he really liked what he saw because I was playing offense and defense. He said he liked how I could go both ways and do a lot of things.
"An offer from SC would mean a lot. They have so much talent at SC and knowing they think I'm someone who can play there and make a difference there, it would mean a lot."
