SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #15 is Utah’s Cole Bishop (S).

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).

“Started as a true freshman last year, exceeded everybody’s expectations but ours,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said of his safety. “We knew how good he was. I don’t think the rest of the league did. He’s a guy that is poised to have a very good sophomore season.”

Utah’s Cole Bishop

Bishop is a sophomore from Peachtree City, Georgia. He was a standout at Starr’s Mill High School where he was a three-star recruit. Bishop was named first-team all-state as a junior and all-region and all-county as a sophomore while also earning County and Region MVP. The Georgia native was invited to the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl. As a junior in high school, Bishop racked up 101 tackles, nine pass breakups and five interceptions.

In his first season with the Utes in 2021, Bishop played in 10 games and started the last six contests of the season. He was named Pac-12 All-Conference honorable mention. Bishop led all true freshmen on the team with 54 tackles, nine tackles for loss, three sacks and five pass breakups.

This fall, the Utes will open their 2022 schedule on the road against the Florida Gators. The Utes and Gators will play on September 3. Utah’s first home game is against the Southern Utah Thunderbirds on September 10.
