  08/08/21 - WR Devaughn VelerJr/2024, Utah

  At one point, as University of Utah wide receiver Britain Covey made his way through Radio Row at Pac-12 media day last week in Los Angeles, the topic turned to redshirt freshman wideout Devaughn Vele. Covey's assessment of the former walk-on was partially rooted in the fact that Vele will perform well in practice, but he has had trouble transferring that into games. With Utah fall camp starting to unfold this week, Vele finds himself in an advantageous position. The Utes have depth questions at wide receiver beyond Covey, Solomon Enis and Jaylen Dixon. Kyle Whittingham gave every indication during spring practice that Vele can step in and grab at least the No. 4 spot, which would get him on the field consistently, but it's up to him to finally break through.

"Going into a game is really hard when you haven't performed at a certain level in a game and you go into a Pac-12 atmosphere, it really is a challenge," Covey said later in the afternoon at Pac-12 media day. "I think there is a mental-toughness side that people don't focus on enough. There's something that you have to carry over, and I feel like I've had that. I had to have that my whole life because I was small, being under-recruited, so I'm trying to help Vele develop that. "When he goes out there, he needs to have no doubt he's an All-Pac-12 receiver. We'll see what happens, but he knows that, which is a good thing. He recognizes that part." - Salt Lake Tribune
