Utes dismiss projected starter at receiver

Arizona Utah Football AP

Well under two months before the start of summer camp, Utah has taken what could be a significant hit on the offensive side of the ball.

According to the Salt Lake TribuneQuinton Pedroza has been dismissed from the Utah football team.  Other than the standard “violation of unspecified team rules,” no reason was given for the wide receiver being on the receiving end of Kyle Whittingham‘s boot.

Pedroza played in 14 games the past two seasons, mainly on special teams.  He did not record a reception during his time with the Utes.

However, coming out of spring practice this year, the junior was listed as a starter at the wide receiver position.

    I am always sorry to hear these things about players, especially my Utes. I had heard rumors this may be coming, but I feel bad for Quinton and for the team. This would have been his opportunity to start this season. I hope he works out his problems and gets in with another team.

    Go Utes!
