Adonis Ameen-Moore is still focused on finishing out his senior season since Denver (Colo.) Mullen is undefeated and in the playoffs but the three-star running back has a visit set up to Utah for Dec. 17 that he's looking forward to because the Utes are one of his favorites.
"They've been involved for about a year," Ameen-Moore said. "They offered at the beginning of the season but I've been talking to them for a long time.
"They wanted to offer earlier but they didn't have a spot open for a running back. Ever since I met the coaches we talk frequently."
Utah is one of the leaders for Ameen-Moore, a 5-foot-10, 215-pound prospect who's rated as the No. 36 running back nationally and eighth in the Colorado state rankings by Rivals.com.
Ameen-Moore and Utah running backs coach Aaron Alford have built a good relationship in the past year and now the Denver Mullen standout will officially visit. Already one of his top schools, Utah could move up even further on Ameen-Moore's list after the trip.
"It's a great program," Ameen-Moore said.
"The running backs coach is my recruiting coach so I have good communication with him. He's from Colorado too so that helps. I like it a lot. It's going to be good to go up there. They're one of my favorites."
A recent official visit to Syracuse also went well and Ameen-Moore said the Orange are also being seriously considered. He has also visited Colorado State.
Colorado, Kansas State and Northwestern have also offered Ameen-Moore, who said he doesn't plan to make a commitment before Christmas.
