Athlete prospect Eric Weddle (6-0, 190, 4.4) from Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Alta Loma has canceled all his visits as he has made new Utah head coach Urban Meyer and the Ute fans happy when he committed to Utah this past weekend.
“I committed to Utah,” Weddle said. “I have since canceled all my visits.”
“I liked the coaches,” Weddle said. “It was more of friend to friend rather than coach to player. I just felt real comfortable about Utah.”
“I liked everything about Utah and I like the direction the program is going in,” Weddle said. “The new coaching staff is great.”
Weddle canceled visits to UNLV (January 17th), Wyoming (January 24th) and New Mexico State (January 31st).
Weddle stood out on both sides of the ball as a senior playing quarterback and defensive back.
As a QB, Weddle passed for 975 yards and threw for four touchdowns. He also rushed for 650 yards and had 22 rushing touchdowns.
Weddle flat out shined on the defensive side of the amassing 130 tackles, eight pass deflections, five fumble recoveries, five picks and three fumbles caused.
Weddle projects as a free safety for the Utes.
