    Re: '10 CO PK Justin Castor

    Showed well at the CU camp, but I'm really torn on whether we should offer a kicker this cycle.

    On the one hand: Jameson is done as a placekicker after having more surgery, Goodman hasn't shown anything on gameday and will be a senior in 2010 anyway, and Grossnickle may end up being a punter.

    On the other hand: 4 scholarships invested in kickers/punters is overkill when many of our competitors don't have 1.

    It's unpredictable until we see everybody play. But I assume it will become clear as the season progresses what our needs are this cycle.

    Could go any which way.

    It's good there are a couple decent kickers interested. Castor has Wyoming offer already.

    Good for Castor. It seems like Colorado's really producing a lot of good kickers.

    With Berger and Crosby in the NFL, it may make kicking and punting something local kids think about more often.

    He switched to the good guys today. Very nice pickup and much needed.

    I'll be interested in what Alferd has to say on this. But I thought Castor was the best kicker in the state (with Kip getting all the hype). I'm very excited about this commitment.

    Hmmmm, 6-5 huh. If he gets one blocked, at least he can get the rebound. Welcome young man.

    At the very least, he better have a REALLY short leash. He should not have free reign to miss several kicks and still keep his job.

    I just read that 2 he missed in the Regis game were from 51 and 69. What we really need is the breakdown of 0-29, 30-39, 40-49 and 50+.

    His punting was at over a 43 yard average per Maxpreps.

    Rivals is holding off on reporting Castor as a CU verbal. Visiting this weekend and de-committed from Kansas (with offers from ASU and CU). Let's hope Scout didn't jump the gun here. Either way, we're still in great shape.

    Nice, hopefully this kid creates some competition within the kicking department. So tired of the deflating misses. Congrats Justin on a fine decision.

    I don't know anything about this kid, but I do know that having a kicker that can consistently kickoff into the end zone and convert FGs from 50 yards and in is an unbelievable weapon. It opens up the playbook in ways you can't imagine. No more going for it on 4th and 3 from the 40 yard line. No more giving up huge runbacks on kickoff returns. It tilts the field in your favor.

    I like this kid (alot) and feel good we might get him.

    However, he has not committed to CU. He DID tell Kansas no thanks, but he is visiting both Boulder and ASU in January, He is officially undecided.

    The scout reporter is not their main guy, he's based out of Arizona. I think he heard "I decommitted from KU, I have a CU offer" and jumped the gun.

    I think Adam has it right on this one.
