    BuffInVA uncovered this one. :thumbsup:

    An offer from CU has yet to be reported, but there seems to be interest. LSU's ESPN-affiliate web site, Bayou Bengals Insider, had this to say about Balancier:

    Quite frankly, the position with the best depth at the top is at safety. Eric Reid from Dutchtown, Tharold Simon of Eunice and Anthony Balancier of McDonough 35 in New Orleans are all elite level safety prospects.

    Wayne Reese at McDonough 35 has sent his fair share of talented high school players to college. While at Carver in New Orleans he coached future NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk. And Reese has high praise for Balancier, and sees him as a tremendous college prospect. Balancier is a physical player, who could find his way on the field in a number of roles.

    I found some video on Rivals that was posted yesterday (not attached to his profile, so it took some digging). It doesn't look like it's premium content.

    http://memphis.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1040923

    Based on the 2 INT returns, he's got some wheels. His size is obvious. And he hits like a linebacker. Interesting prospect.

    Rivals shows Medium interest (may be just from Balancier's side)

    On Gatti: Scout reported that CU has requested video

    If I remember right from filling out a Rivals profile for a High School kid and his family a few years back, interest means nothing more than the kid included it in his form of schools he was interested in. For a kid with a tie to CU such as he lives in Colorado or he has family here, etc - it means nothing. For kids that are DBs in New Orleans, it probably means he's been hearing from the staff a lot..... Thanks!

    buffaholic,

    That's what I was thinking. Especially with Ambrose being our DB coach and recruiter for Louisiana. I don't include most of the no offer guys with a CU interest. :thumbsup:
