    HS coach (Tesone) played at CSU. Prefers Wyoming early. Will camp at CSU and UW this summer. Also talking to CU and NU. Plays LB in high school but projects as a DL in college (like Pericek). 4 year starter.

    Here's a kid I hope changes his mind. He'd be a good addition to our DL.

    Is Chez the last person from Niwot that was a buff?

    EDIT: Forgot about Jeremy Hauk's brief stint in Boulder as well. Any other cougars?

    Yeah, but it would be a tough thing culturally. I think he's found the right home with Wyoming. He's a cowboy type (wears boots to school).

    If we are winning at home, and these local guys get to some games, you never know if they might catch a little Buff fever.

    Re: '10 CO DT Tyler Strong (Committed to Wyoming)

    Let's just say he ATE ALIVE a certain soon to be Husker lineman in Laramie early this summer...... This kid is way under the radar and don't let the lack of the scouting services fool ya on this guy. CU wants him real bad. Nebraska wants him and CSU wants him. I don't see him changing his mind though. He loves Laramie.

    I know we're interested, but how can you say we want him "real bad" if we have not offered?

    Re: '10 CO DT Tyler Strong (Committed to Wyoming)

    I don't know about that. Niwot is a small town, but it still is really close to Boulder. Also, every kid I met from Niwot while in college (which was a decent amount, including Ches) was NOT a farm boy. Some of them had some country ties, but they did not consider themselves country folk.

    I agree with BB that I'd rather have other DTs. I wish this kid the best.

    Boulder Camera Article

    Wyoming right fit for Niwot's Strong

    Cougars linebacker looks forward to senior season after committing early

    By Joshua Lindenstein (Contact)
    Sunday, July 19, 2009

    BOULDER, Colo. — Roaming the halls of Niwot High, Tyler Strong is a bit of an anomaly.

    Cowboy boots and Wranglers, after all, aren't exactly standard garb at the school that's tucked in the upscale community on the southwestern edge of Longmont. Instead of a hand-me-down Audi or BMW, Strong rolls up to school in the morning in his jacked up Dodge pickup.

    And that's just the way he likes it, which is why his college choice is really no surprise.

    Chez is ALL farm boy. He not only was raised on a ranch, he still helps run it. I am good friends with that family.

    Re: '10 CO DT Tyler Strong (Committed to Wyoming)

    Yeah, I know his family has a ranch - but come on, I think it's a stretch to say that he is ALL farm boy. I didn't go, but from what I've heard from his good friends, his wedding in NYC was not a good-ole country get together. I am not friends with his family, but I would not say he is ALL farm boy. Yes, he has some country roots, but the assertion that kids from Niwot may not blend in well at Boulder is false in my opinion. Niwot isn't separated from cities as Sterling or other country towns.

    No it's not, and I am a Niwot guy as well. It's really just between Boulder and Longmont. I'm not sure where people think of Niwot as a big farming community. But ya, Chez is a farm guy. But most Niwot people are just normal Boulder or Longmont type people.

    Re: '10 CO DT Tyler Strong (Committed to Wyoming)

    I think you guys missed the point. The article above says he's an anomaly at Niwot because he's about the only cowboy there....

    Boulder Buff: First of all, just because you didn't read it on rivals doesn't make it so. Players themselves report to Rivals who they have offers from. Tyler isn't the self-promoting type and he got the one offer he wanted and cancelled everything else on his summer itinerary. CU likes this kid. I will say that it's not a slam dunk he would get into CU though.

    Re: '10 CO DT Tyler Strong (Committed to Wyoming)

    I make it a point to watch the top HS kids who may end up at CU every year (Cunningham, Miller, etc). I live in Niwot, so I've seen this kid play since his freshmen year. The Cowboys grabbed this kid and had him cancel his invite to CU's camp.

    This kid had my jaw dropping last night. Get over the cowboy thing kid and step up to the Big12 and see how good you can be! He's not 280, but he's a fit 260 it looks.

    Re: '10 CO DT Tyler Strong (Committed to Wyoming)

    Sounds like being called a 'Cowboy' is as important to him as playing football. Someone like that would probably not be very comfortable at Boulder. If he wanted big time football and a country feel, seems like NU would be a better fit, so I am good with him going to Wyoming.
