After it (very quickly) didn’t work out at one Pac-12 school, Logan Stott is going to give another member of the same conference a whirl.
Stott’s father, Dale Stott, confirmed to the Salt Lake Tribune that his son has decided to continue his playing career at Utah. At least initially, the offensive lineman will be a walk-on with the Utes, but one who could see immediate playing time.
“The coaches have said it’s a possibility [that he earns a scholarship], but whether he has a scholarship is not the most important thing,” the dad told the Tribune. “He has an opportunity to compete for time. That’s what he wants.”
Stott was a four-star member of Arizona’s 2013 recruiting class, rated as the No. 14 guard in the country and the No. 3 player at any position in the state of Utah. Shortly after signing with the Wildcats, Stott left the football program for a reason or reasons that aren’t entirely clear.
The paper writes that “[h]e’s spent the last few months playing for the undefeated (and unpaid) Dixie Rebels, a semi-pro football team Dale Stott coaches.”
Stott’s also been taking online classes at Utah as well as shadowing “players to a few team meetings, practices and weightlifting sessions this spring, and… following a Utah strength and conditioning program to enter camp in proper shape.”
