    I don't know. If he wanted to go so badly he should've pulled the trigger by now.

    I'm thinking ASU as well, but it is curious that he did not jump on that offer right away. Seems like the top Arizona kids seem content to play it out.

    Colorado is recruiting Abreu as a CB.

    Hmm, interesting. Perhaps he can play the part.

    Re: '10 AZ ATH Ramon Abreu

    He's very focused on the academic side and how well a program does at preparing its athletes for life after football. I have a good feeling that Abreu will eventually be a Buff and will eventually be a great Safety for us.

    Scout's got a very good premium article up on him today.

    Abreu is visiting this weekend for the A&M game. I have a pretty good feeling about this one. ASU wasn't able to lock him down before he visited. Supposed to be beautiful weather this weekend.

    Scout's SW Recruiting Analyst (Jason Jewell) reported that Abreu's response when asked whether he liked CU: "What's NOT to like?". :cool:

    Aside from Jewell screwing up and thinking that Texas A&M beat us :rolleyes:, Jewell's interview article is very solid.

    Abreu is expected to take a visit to Arizona State and it looks like they're our only competition (and we definitely made up ground this past weekend).

    Some choice quotes from the article:

    Abreu's first impression, "It was awesome organization by the program to show us the school, academics, the people and the players."

    The support despite the loss also made an impression on Abreu. "It was a college football town which was awesome. I have never seen such loyal students and fans. The team doesn't have the best record but walking into the stadium, you wouldn't know that." He adds, "A lot of the players were really humble and great people," he adds.

    *** btw, he won't see that type of fan support or college town environment at ASU and he didn't see it at his other official (San Diego State). Decided advantage for CU.

    Abreu decided to take no more visits after seeing CU and ASU. He's believed to be a heavy Sun Devil lean (live down the street from the stadium), but he didn't commit when he was there so who knows. Expect a decision soon. He was waiting until his HS season was over to make the announcement.

    Curious that Abreu hasn't committed yet.

    Maybe offer(s) aren't committable?

    Maybe he's a silent to either CU or ASU?

    Or maybe he just hasn't decided yet?

    He'd be a very nice addition to this class if we could pull off the late surprise here.

    Seems that Rivals answered my question this morning. Abreu's still deciding, CU's definitely still in it, and a decision should be coming in the next couple weeks.

    http://colorado.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1036009

    Abreu said his top three choices remains unchanged, with Colorado a finalist along with San Diego State and hometown Arizona State.

    "I've been waiting to see if I picked up any new offers, but everything is the same," Abreu said. "It's close between those three. I plan to meet with my family and my coaches before I make a decision. I haven't heard from anybody new, but you never know what's going to happen in recruiting."

    One of the schools that Abreu, a 5-foot-10, 170-pounder, was waiting to see if it would make a late recruiting pitch for him was Arizona. That's because former Colorado defensive backs coach Greg Brown, who was recruiting Abreu for the Buffs, left Colorado for a job at Arizona.

    But Abreu, who has 10 offers in all and is ranked the No. 10 prospect in his state, said Arizona told him it isn't looking for more defensive backs to add to its Class of 2010.

    "Coach Brown was one of my favorite coaches, so it changed things at first for me," Abreu said. "But I like the new coach (Ashley Ambrose) Colorado has recruiting me as well. I've got a good relationship started with him."

    *****************

    Go Abrose! We could really use Abreu in this class. He brings a lot of athleticism.

    Earlier, valdezj had posted the youtube video of Abreu's junior year defensive highlights. Here are his offensive highlights (his athleticism really shows here):

    In all seriousness, I wouldn't be surprised at all if Brown steered him toward CU when they talked. He's tight with Ambrose, was a Buff for many years, and does not want to see Abreu playing for rival Arizona State. When he told Abreu that Arizona simply didn't have room for any more DBs in this class, odds are he put in a good word for us. :thumbsup:

    Damn. A lot of speculation that he was an ASU lock from early on, but it seemed to be turning our way on this one.

    I wonder if this means that we bring in A.J. Powell. Or maybe the coaching staff is on someone else with more prototypical safety size/speed who we're unaware of right now.
