    Good news!

    He just de-committed tonight!

    Rivals Content

    Top 3 of Texas Tech, USM, Kansas State.

    We're in the next group with Virginia, Utah and Nebraska.

    He's looking for PT, Grad Rate & Coaching. (Not sure the GR criteria is sincere based on who's in and who's out of his Top 3.)

    Urell Johnson has been reported by Rivals as on an official visit to CU this weekend. Ruffin and the other defensive coaches who were fired from Texas Tech were his main reason for committing there. He has opened things up and we have a real chance here.

    Per Rivals, Johnson will visit Illinois next weekend and then decide among CU, the Illini and TTU.

    "Boulder is nice. I enjoyed myself out there," said Johnson, who stands 6-foot-0, 185-pounds. "I loved the environment, the mountains, their stadium and the players there made me feel comfortable. All the people I met in Boulder were great."

    Given the TTU staff has just switched over, and Ashley Ambrose (former NFLer,[FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif] native of New Orleans, he graduated from Alcee Fortier High School in 1988)[/FONT] is his recruiter and position coach, I like where we sit. Still worry more about someone like Tennessee's new staff getting involved as he had an offer there. Does seem like he's interested in leaving the south. Lubbock, Illinois, Colorado....

    We need this guy badly imo.

    Would be a huge pickup. Can't see him going back to TTU.

    Really? That was the only thing the Zooker had going for him.

    Convincing kids with other D1 options to go to a "coach-on-the-hot-seat" program is tough. Zook's class is really weak right now.

    Sounds a little like our situation to me. Politics saved Hawks job this year, next year he has to win or they won't have much choice but to move him.

    The real question is how many programs can actually say they are stable at the coaching position for the next 5 years. BCS conference schools if you aren't at least .500 and going to a bowl every other year you are getting looked at, most of these schools if you are not at least contending for your conference every few years you don't need a fixed mortgage. At a lot of schools if you are not winning at least 10 boosters are grumbling (realistic or not.) On the other side of it, if your coach is winning you have to worry about the guy leaving. Outside of Texas, Florida, and maybe five or six others, how many schools can win big (or even do reasonably well) without worrying about somebody coming in and poaching their coach. If it is not for a bigger paying NCAA program (or closer to home, or the dream job, etc.) it is the NFL.

    The days of having multiple coaches in a conference with 10 or more years at the same school are in the past. Players should pick their school for what the school offers them because depending on a coach being around for 4-5 years is a fool's bet.

    Average tenure of NCAA football coaches is less than 4 years (closer to 3). Athletes need to commit to a school and a program, not a coach.

    Yeah for sure, but I mean Zook just kind of me reminds me of Orgeron, even when he was losing big he was still hauling in the recruits. For Zook to have a class worse than ours is pretty bad.

    The CB position is looking pretty thin after Brown and Smith graduate.

    Honestly, I am not even sure what that means.

    It means he does not know what the word "commited" means. As is true for a lot of these guys.
