In a similar situation at quarterback, there isn't a ton of depth but four-star Washington commit Cyler Miles, from Denver (Colo.) Mullen, is more than capable here. He was outstanding all summer and is one of the nation's top quarterbacks.
In the secondary, four-star athlete Chase Hansen would lead the way along with fellow Utah commit Austin Lee, but there would be some issues there.
The offensive line for Colorado/Utah would be one of the nation's best but that region doesn't have many playmakers. Arizona's defensive ends are very strong, along with the wide receivers, and that gives it the edge.
Nearly every year of the last 10 this would have been a heated debate, given all the teams in these four states. However, entering 2011 the only state keeping up its end of the deal is Arizona and that single state will carry the debate. Arizona has Chandler Hamilton, Scottsdale Chaparral, Peoria Centennial, Chandler High, Brophy College Prep and several others that would be able to go and compete, or beat, Denver Mullen - which would be by far the best team of the Colorado/Utah combination. Both New Mexico and Utah are down entering the season and neither has a single team ranked for the RivalsHigh 100 entering the season. The pair really does not bring much to the best versus best debate this year. In past seasons the combination of South Jordan Bingham and Sandy Alta, among others in Utah, could have held their own in the clash but this season it isn't in the cards. Arizona could have won this if it were against the other three states combined, too.
