Utah landed a massive transfer pledge on Monday. Former USC and Arizona wide receiver Dorian Singer is joining the program, and Utah has already announced his signing. The program needed a true No. 1 option at receiver, and Singer can certainly fit that bill.

One fan apparently promised to go streaking through his neighborhood if Utah landed Singer. So, when the program announced Singer’s addition, it didn’t matter that there was snow on the ground. He stayed true to his word.

Singer was a victim of USC’s heavy, heavy rotation at receiver in 2023 and he never quite meshed with quarterback Caleb Williams.

But when he was at Arizona, he was an All-Pac-12 performer. In 2022, Singer caught 66 balls for 1,105 yards and made highlight-reel catches just about every week.

With Utah losing Devaughn Vele and Mikey Matthews, the Utes went into the offseason with a major need at wide receiver. So far, the offseason haul is looking promising. Utah has also added former 4-star Washington receiver Taeshaun Lyons.

Cameron Rising and Brant Kuithe are coming back for the 2024 campaign, but after both missed the entire 2023 season, there will almost certainly be some kind of adjustment period. While Lyons is more of an upside play, the 6-foot Singer has already proven he can be a leading man in an efficient offense. Getting him into the program should give Rising a reliable option down the field.

No Pac-12 pass-catcher had more contested targets than Singer in 2022. And only UCLA’s Jake Bobo had more contested catches that year. Singer also finished that year with the most catches on downfield passes (20 yards or more) of any Pac-12 pass-catcher.
