Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr receiver Delshawn McClellon finished his senior season with several impressive stats. McClellon had 65 catches totaling 1,045 yards and scored 10 touchdowns.
His speed on the field captured the attention of several competitive programs during the spring of his junior season, when McClellon received offers from Arizona State, Hawaii, Utah and Idaho.
Shortly after receiving the offer from Utah, McClellon committed to their program in June. Roughly six months after committing, McClellon discussed his status with the Utes.
“I am pretty solid,” said McClellon. “I am looking forward to my official trip out there in January.”
McClellon will be traveling to Utah after the New Year on Jan.13th for his official.
McClellon listed the reasons he knows Utah is the right fit for him.
“I will fit well into their offense. Also the coaches have told me I will get to play early,” said McClellon. “I also really like the school. They are in the process of remodeling their football facilities, which will be done by the time I go there.”
Another reason McClellon was attracted to Utah was because of his great relationship with the coaches and his family connection in Salt Lake.
“I’m already familiar with the area because my grandpa lives out there. It’s a nice community,” said McClellon. “I also really like the coaches. I keep in close contact with head coach Kyle Whittingham, Coach Norm Chow and Coach Aaron Roderick.”
McClellon talked about where he will fit in to the Utes offense.
“They want me to play both slot and outside receiver,” said McClellon.
There is another program on McClellon’s radar that started showing him interest earlier this season.
“Oregon started to contact me during my season,” said McClellon. “I like their football program because I could bring a lot of speed to their already quick offense.”
