SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #48 is Utah State’s Brian Cobbs (WR).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

“Brian Cobbs, the Maryland transfer with one year left to play has been a pleasant surprise,” Utah State head coach Blake Anderson said of his wide receiver. “He came out of Maryland with 50-some-odd catches in the Big Ten. Stepped in day one and started showing up in spring ball. Was very consistent, his ball skills were off-the-charts good. I expect him to have a great season. Been a huge get for us.”
