Utah Football Ready To Showcase Talented Tight End Group

Aug 30, 2022, 1:19 PM

SALT LAKE CITY – One of the deepest and most talented position groups for Utah Football is their tight ends led by Brant Kuithe and Dalton Kincaid.

Utah feels likes they have two or three guys behind them that can contribute, which has created competition and depth.

Dalton Kincaid and Brant Kuithe are expected to have a big year for the Utes and are All-American candidates. Both players decided to return to Utah rather than declare for the NFL Draft. Kincaid and Kuithe each received offers to participate in the NFL Draft Combine but both declined.

Utah Football Depth At Tight End

Utes tight end coach Freddie Whittingham didn’t have very much turnover at his position from last season aside from Cole Fotheringham who moved on to the NFL. However, Whittingham is feeling confident he’s found a good replacement for Fotheringham in 2022, along with a couple of other guys who have made strides to be in the rotation.

“We brought in Logan Kendall who is a grad transfer from Idaho,” Whittingham said. “You’re going to see him as a line of scrimmage tight end, big physical blocker. We can still get into those 13-personnel groups and will do kind of what Cole Fotheringham did for us last year. He can also play some fullback for us. Thomas Yassmin is also another tight end I feel great about. He’s big, he’s athletic, he can run. He can do it all. Run block, pass protect, run routes. Munir McClain has also moved to tight end and he’s more in the mold of a pass-catching tight end, very athletic, he can run, has really soft hands so I feel really great about the depth going into this fall.”

Yassmin and Kendall both have experience playing the tight end position. McClain joined the Utes in 2021 as a transfer from USC playing wide receiver. During the offseason, McClain and the Utah coaching staff decided to switch him to tight end.

The Utes open their 2022 season on Saturday, September 3 on the road against the Florida Gators at 5:00 p.m. MT on ESPN.
