Pleasant Grove, Utah, quarterback Dallas Lloyd has officially become a wanted man.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound dual-threat quarterback already had three offers on the table from BYU, Stanford and Wyoming, but over the past few days he's added two more impressive offers to his resume.
Tulsa and Utah were the latest to offer Lloyd, who threw for 1,689 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior. And both offers really caught his attention.

The Tulsa offer came on Tuesday, and Lloyd was pumped about it.
"It is quite an honor to be recruited by such a strong program," he said. "Going 11-3 says a lot. I actually watched most of the game where they man handled Ball State in the in their bowl win. They had like 600 yards in total offense that game.
"Coach Todd Graham has really got the program going. It means a lot to be offered by a school that has lead the nation in total offense the last two years. I love their scheme and play calling and think it suits my style perfectly. I think I would be a good fit there."
Lloyd said he's being recruited mainly by Bill Blankenship.
"I have spoken with Coach B several times, and he is amazing," Lloyd said. "It is important to me to have a great relationship with my position coach, and he has been fantastic in every way. I just need to plan a visit this spring, and I am looking forward to going out and seeing it for myself."
Late last week is when Utah entered the picture. The in-state school has a lot to offer, especially with the program's recent run toward the elite in the nation.
"I am really excited for this offer," Lloyd said. "Growing up in Utah you cant help but follow and imagine yourself playing there. A distant family member played for tight end for Utah a few years back, as well as my high school coach's son started for Utah last year. I have heard so many awesome, behind the scenes stories it is cool."
Lloyd said he thinks Utah was the nation's best program last year.
"Utah should have ended up No. 1 last year," he said. "We all know how hard it is to run the table and go undefeated in anything. I know that's a bold statement, but think about it – they handled Alabama so easily. You give Coach Whit time to prepare for anyone, and he and his staff will come out on top almost every time.
"I have a visit set up with them later this week . I'll maybe sit in on an offensive meeting and then attend a practice. They want to explain everything to me, and how I would fit in, the offense, schemes, etc. I am looking forward to it. They have amazing facilities and are great people."
