As the longest-tenured coach in the Pac-12, Utah’s Kyle Whittingham has turned developing less-heralded recruits into an art form. His next masterpiece sculpture could come from the clay that is raw 3-star offensive lineman Luke Felix-Fualalo, who committed to the Utes on Friday.

The 6-foot-7, 300-pound Felix-Fualalo originally is from Australia but is set to play his senior year at Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, the defending mythical high school national champions. He’s ranked No. 1,237 overall by 247Sports, which also lists him as the 109th-best tackle.
Felix-Fualalo is the second offensive lineman to commit to Utah in the last week, both from California. On Sunday they got a pledge from 3-star guard Marist Talavou, who plays for St. John Bosco in Bellflower.
