Utah’s Nate Ritchie

Ritchie is a sophomore safety from Cedar Hills, Utah.

Coming out of high school, Ritchie was a three-star prospect and the fourth-best recruit in the state of Utah.

During his time at Lone Peak High School, he was a two-time first-team all-state selection, Region 4 Defensive MVP, and a state champion.

Ritchie made his Utah debut in 2020. He started all five games in the COVID-shortened season and posted 28 total tackles, four tackles for loss, one sack, one pass breakup, and one fumble recovery.

He didnt suit up over the next few seasons before returning to action in 2023.

Last season, Ritchie played all 12 games and posted 22 total tackles, 1,5 tackles for loss, and one sack.

Ritchie’s father, Brad, played football at BYU.
