WHAT IT MEANS: Kincaid Transfers to Utah
The University of Utah received good news from the transfer market today, as University of San Diego tight end, Dalton Kincaid has transferred to the Utes. The 6-foot-5 243 pound junior had 44 receptions in 2019 for 835 yards and eight touchdowns. He hit the NCAA Transfer Portal a week and a half ago and announced his decision on Twitter, Thursday:
What Utah is getting
Dalton is a big-time receiving threat that still has his best football ahead of him—he only played one year of high school ball. He’ll want to work on his blocking, but that will all come with time and it won’t be anything that keeps him off of the field. With this addition, tight ends coach Fred Whittingham, might have the best group at that position in the country.
As the best FCS tight end on the transfer market, scouts already believe he has NFL potential. The best part about the news today is the belief that Kincaid should be immediately eligible, as San Diego doesn’t give out athletic scholarships in football.
Kincaid will be an instant impact transfer in the spring, regardless of how good the position already is.
What this means for the class
That’s to-be-determined, depending on whether or not Brant Kuithe has a big season during the spring and decides to head to the NFL. Therefore, they could also try to continue to land one high school tight end.
