Utah might be getting a good one.
Lake Forest (Calif.) El Toro pro-style quarterback Conner Manning, who committed to the Utes in July, smashed the Orange County single-game passing record by throwing for 613 yards in a victory against El Cajon (Calif.) Valhalla last weekend.
He also had a personal-best seven touchdown passes.

"I had a good game," Manning said.
"I can tell I threw a lot but I would never guess 600 yards. Someone told me after the game that it was a record and that's how I found out.
"It's nice. It's really nice actually to see that kind of stuff. Without my team nothing is happening so all the credit goes to them."
Manning, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound three-star prospect, said some programs are still recruiting him but he's sticking with his Utah commitment.
After visiting there this summer and getting to know the Utes' coaching staff, Manning said he knew he found the right program.
As other colleges didn't offer earlier in his recruitment, Utah took a shot on him and the three-star quarterback said he wouldn't forget it.
Manning is so firmly committed to the Utes that even when other schools call to inquire about him he tells the coaches thanks, but no thanks.
"I'm sticking with Utah for sure," Manning said. "They were the first ones to take a risk on me and they've always been there so I'm a Ute.
"Some schools have been recruiting me but my coach and I have been telling them I'm going to Utah. Some have stopped after we told them that."
