University of Utah athletics director Mark Harlan announced that the department has created a Ty Jordan Memorial Scholarship. Jordan, who passed away on Christmas night, had a stellar freshman season for the Utes in 2020. He earned Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year honors after rushing for 597 yards and six touchdowns over five games.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham and his wife, Jamie, were the first to donate. They contributed $100,000 to the fund. To learn more about the scholarship and to make a donation click on this secure university link.
This Is The Place Sports offers its condolences to all those impacted by the tragedy.
