Carlos Lozano said he loved his visit to Utah and the Pac-12 school is one of two standing out most in his recruitment but before he makes a decision there will be a couple more visits.
The 6-foot-8, 360-pound offensive tackle from Monterey Park (Calif.) East Los Angeles College has been to Utah and Kansas State - his top two schools - he's at Kansas over the next couple days and then will visit Washington next weekend before making a decision.
Lozano said everything went really well during his weekend trip to Utah and there is a good chance he could end up playing there.
"I really liked it out there," Lozano said. "Everything was good and I didn't see anything bad. It was a great place and now I'm headed to Kansas just to see how that's going to be.
"I really liked the players and the coaching staff at Utah. I really liked how they do things out there with school and football and just the success they've had. Next year they're going to have a good team."
During his trip to Utah, Lozano, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, got the impression he'd have a chance to compete for early playing time and that's clearly a draw in his recruitment.
Utah wide receiver Anthony Denham and Lozano are acquaintances and that could help the Utes' cause as well.
"I really like teams that are offering me a chance for a starting spot," Lozano said.
"Both of their tackles are gone so I'll have a chance to play left tackle or right tackle so that could be good for me if I decide to go there. I got along with everybody and I have a friend (Denham) that plays there so that really helps, too."
