Utah loses commitment from 2023 defensive lineman
Utah lost a member of its 2023 class late Saturday night.
Caleb Bryant, a 2023 defensive lineman from Vicksburg (Miss.), announced on social media he has de-committed from Utah. According to 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong, the Utes remain in the running to still ultimately land his signature.
I Am Verbally Decomitting From The University Of Utah .💯 My Recruitment Is Now 100% Open.

Bryant told Wiltfong he felt he committed too early. He took an official visit to Salt Lake City back in mid-June and committed at that time.
In the last two weeks, though, Bryant has picked up offers from both USC and Oregon, and it would seem that’s forced him to reconsider.
Bryant is a 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive end. He rates as a 3-star prospect in the industry-generated 247 Composite. The No. 9 player in the state of Mississippi, he rates as the 60th-best defensive lineman and the 507th overall prospect in the 2023 class.
In his last two seasons of high school ball, Bryant has 30 tackles for loss and 20 sacks. He’s starting to see his recruitment pick up a bit with the new season upon us, so we’ll see if Utah can bring him back into the class or if he’ll end up somewhere else.
