Utah cornerback JaTravis Broughton has entered the transfer portal, according to multiple reports. UteZone’s Steve Bartle was first on the news.

Broughton spent five years in Salt Lake City, where he has been a regular starter in the secondary. He’ll enter the portal as a grad transfer with one year of eligibility remaining.

A 5-foot-11 corner from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Broughton has 29 career starts in 46 appearances. He started 11 times this season for the Utes, totaling 36 tackles, two pass breakups, and a tackle for loss.

He started all five games in 2020 as a true sophomore, started the first two games of the 2021 season before a season-ending injury took him out of the lineup, and then returned in 2022 to make 11 more starts.

From a coverage standpoint, Broughton had his poorest season as a Ute this fall. Pro Football Focus gave him a 42.7 coverage grade and charged him with eight missed tackles. Still, the experience he brings to the table is hard to replicate and harder still to lose.

His entry into the portal brings the tally of outgoing Utah players up to 14. Six of those departures have come from players in the secondary.
