Utah will be short one running back on its depth chart this fall as the school announced that running back Harvey Langi has accepted his mission call and will leave the program on July 25.

Langi came to Utah as an All-American out of Bingham High School in Utah but did not have a great freshman season for the Utes. He carried the ball only 13 times for 70 yards last season.
However, Langi had been turning some heads this spring, including Utah coach Kyle Whittingham. Whittingham said "the light switch is starting to come on" for Langi back in April during spring practice.
Unfortunately for Whittingham, it looks like he'll have to wait a while before flipping the switch again.
