PROVO – Day 2 of fall camp was another day of “fake football” with no pads being worn yet, but the practices have still been physical and some players have stood out.
Uriah Leiataua ready to emerge
Leiataua had a great practice on Friday. All the hype that was there when he signed in 2014 is starting to show now. He’s confident and he was beating Thomas Shoaf on multiple plays. He’s one of the three best pass rushers on the team.
Austin Kafentzis with zero snaps at QB
During the 30 minutes I was able to watch, Kafentzis took zero snaps at quarterback. Day one of practice was not good for Austin, he threw five straight ducks that were not catchable. He’s being used in the kick return game right now.
JJ Nwigwe at Tight End
Nwigwe had a catch on a trick play from the TE spot sporting #96. Tight ends coach Steve Clark was jumping up and down when Nwigwe caught the ball. They want to get Nwigwe on the field, because it probably isn’t going to happen at offensive line. He’s getting beat out and might not be on the two-deep at either of the offensive tackle spots.
