Central Utah – Rising Stars (Defense)

Here are the top defensive performers from the Central Utah – D1 Showcase:

Top Performers

DB Kaleb Lundquist, Spanish Fork HS, 2019 (Co-MVP) – The shut down corner is full of talent, energy, and a non stop motor.  Lundquist is a coach’s dream at the DB position.  He dominated every segment during this event. He’s an absolute Division 1 talent.

DL CJ Alatini, Timpview HS, 2019 (Co-MVP) – Alatini looked like a man playing against boys.  He’s on a different level, and is a legitimate Power 5 football player.

DL Jordan McKean, Fremont HS, 2020 – The Fremont D-lineman is strong, quick, and has long-quick arms.  McKean is one of the top football players in the 2020 class, and leads the defensive line for underclassmen.

DL Logan Fano, Timpview HS, 2021 – Fano is one of the top football players in America at his position.  He is only a freshman and is just as good as any senior in the state at his position.

DB Mekhi Bright, Kearns HS, 2019 – The Northern Utah MVP came down to get some work against the top receivers in the region.  The end result was pretty much the same as the first Showcase, with Bright dominating.  Bright is as talented as they come at the cornerback position.

DB Kimball Henstrom, Alta HS, 2019 – The Alta DB competed hard, and showed great ball skills.  He had some great battles against legitimate D1 receivers, which earned him a spot on the D1 Watch List, and a ticket to Rising Stars. We like what we see in this young man.

DB Raider Dumani, Timpview HS, 2021 – Dumani has the potential to be a star for years to come.  Dumani challenged anyone and everyone, during the elite one on one competition segment, and shined.

LB Sam Knudson, Juan Diego HS, 2019 – Knudson is a natural LB, and is a legitimate D1 talent at the LB position.  We like what he brings to the table.

LB Carson Stokes, Northridge HS, 2019 – The Northridge product is a legitimate D1 caliber player.  He has the potential to do very well on the D1 level.
