Recruiting Central

Utah cornerback Soe excited to join Griz

on

As Corbin Walker raced into the end-zone on a pick-six that put an exclamation on a playoff beat down, Autjoe Soe saw a flash of what he might want his career to be.

Walker, a true freshman from Renton just outside Seattle, capped Montana’s 73-28 victory over Southeastern Louisiana in the second round of the FCS Playoffs. That Saturday on December 7 last year, the Grizzlies hosted a slew of recruits, including Soe, an athletic yet under recruited cornerback who, like Walker, might push for a spot on the depth chart as a rookie.

Soe and the rest of the recruits along with Montana’s redshirt freshmen stood at the corner of the south end-zone in Washington-Grizzly Stadium as Walker sprinted across the UM goal line with two minutes left.

That walloping, Montana’s first post-season victory since 2015, proved a crucial performance in front of a collection of prospects who ended up signing with the Grizzlies on December 22. The interception return certainly left an impression on Soe.
