Pick Analysis: Ursua and his two older brothers all played college football, though his brothers stayed on the mainland to play at their current home state at Southern Utah while he returned to the state in which he was born to attend college. After an accomplished career as a high school quarterback, Ursua went on a two-year church mission in Paris. He redshirted in 2015 at Hawaii before earning starts in 13 of 14 games played at the inside receiver position the following year (53-652-12.3, three TDs). Ursua was leading the nation in receiving yards per game (130.6) and receptions per game (9.2) through six games before succumbing to a right knee injury. He led the team with 667 receiving yards (47 receptions, 14.2 average) and five touchdowns despite the injury. Mountain West coaches appreciated his comeback season in 2018, voting him first-team all-conference after he led the nation with 16 receiving touchdowns, finished fifth with 1,343 receiving yards, and ninth with 89 receptions (15.1 average).
