  Among Utah's intriguing position battles this spring is at running back. The arrivals of T.J. Pledger, a transfer from Oklahoma, and Chris Curry, a transfer from Louisiana State, have been well publicized while a three-star recruit from Florida, Ricky Parks, will join the Utes this summer. But overlooked somewhat is 5-foot-11, 200-pound redshirt freshman Micah Bernard, who is actually No. 1 on the depth chart this spring. Bernard has been in the program since 2019, arriving on campus when he was just 17 years old.

Bernard, a three-star recruit, rushed for 2,411 yards during his career at Gahr High School in Cerritos, California. He hails from Long Beach. After redshirting at Utah in '19, Bernard played in five games last season, rushing 15 times for 76 yards and catching four passes for 25 yards. So what puts Bernard at the top of the depth chart, ahead of Pledger and Curry at this point? "He's 200 pounds and he has great hands out of the backfield. He's tough and really smooth. You didn't really see Micah last year for obvious reasons. But he's really made a big jump from last spring to this spring. Now it's his time to shine." - Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, on Micah Bernard - Deseret News
