    Four-star cornerback Javelin Guidry committed to the Utah Utes on Friday, giving Kyle Whittingham’s team its 13th commit in the cycle.


    Kyle Whittingham is taking a running start into National Signing Day (NSD). On Friday, less than a week before NSD, the Utes landed 4-star cornerback Javelin Guidry out of Murrieta, California.

    Guidry announced his decision via social media, thanking all the coaches who invested time in recruiting him.

    “College football recruitment has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I have faced success as well as rejection. With God’s guidance and grace, He has helped me succeed in football and earn a free college education. Thank you to all of the coaches who took the time to recruit me, it has been a blessing. Thank you to my loving family for their support and investment into my future. I have decided to open the next chapter of my life in manhood and play football for the University of Utah. #GoUtes.”

    Ranked the No. 38 cornerback in the nation, Guidry is a lockdown defender who possesses blazing speed. He’s been scouted by some as a running back, but projects as a defensive back at the next level.

    Guidry’s commitment is a nice coup for Whittingham and the Utes, as they were going heads-up against Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns. A one-time Houston commit, Guidry promptly decommitted from the Cougars after Herman left for Austin. From there he was immediately offered by Utah, and then Texas. It’s quite a credit to Whittingham that he pulled a SoCal native out of California, and blocked Texas from landing a kid who had a longstanding relationship with Herman.

    The Utes now sit at No. 43 in the 2017 class recruiting rankings.
