Brandon Cox, a California high school quarterback who had verbally committed to the UA over the summer, has changed his mind and will attend Utah.
Cox verbally committed to the Utes Sunday, a week after visiting Salt Lake City for the Utah-USC game.
The 6-foot-3-inch, 200-pound Cox told the Salt Lake Tribune that Utah felt like a good fit. Cox decommitted from the UA a week ago, a decision he told California reporters was "mutual".
"I liked their loyalty," he told the Tribune. "I was impressed with all the former Utes on the staff, that is big with me."
The Scout.com recruiting service lists Cox as a three-star recruit and the 57th-best quarterback in the nation.
He threw for 2,697 yards and 26 yards and rushed 95 times for 562 yards and eight scores as a junior at Pasadena High School. His senior season has been slowed by injuries.
Cox's decommitment leaves the UA with two quarterbacks in its 2013 class, Las Vegas Bishop Gorman's Anu Solomon and Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway standout Tommy Woodson.
