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 Tribune, Quinton 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.
