    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    Langford visited Michigan 2 weeks ago (no offer). Current offers are from the MAC. Considered to be a bit underrated by the scouting services and he's having a big senior year.

    Season Totals: 205 Carries, 1932 yards, 9.42 avg., 214.7 Y/G, 24 TDs

    Langford also plays some safety.

    Those are pretty solid numbers for a guy who appears to be 40! I hope he considers our Buffs.

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    Those are some good numbers. Is the reason he is underrated on the scout systems because of the talent level he plays against? Or something else?

    He looks pretty impressive. Nothing I have read has mentioned his grades. I hope that is not the reason he is not getting offers

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    Reminds me of a Chris Brown, and dare I say it?? A Terrell Davis kind of guy. Makes a cut and goes forward, always going forward, and does not dance in the hole. Once through it, tends to run away from the defenders. that being said, it is HS football and tackling was not the strong suit they exhibited out there.

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    Langford is visiting for the Nebraska game.

    New article up on Rivals (LINK) that answers a lot of questions and got me very excited about Langford's potential:

    - "The main thing that separates Jeremy from the average high school running back is his speed," John Glenn Athletic Director Brian Swineheart explained. "He is lightning fast."

    - Langford ran track for the first time this past spring and he clocked in at 10.7-seconds in the 100-meter dash.

    - "If Jeremy was fully qualified from the beginning, he would have had a dozen offers by the time this fall rolled around," said Swineheart. "But honestly his first three years he struggled academically. It just wasn't a priority for him. This past spring, I met with him and his dad and got him in summer school and he did great. He has turned it around academically. And as a person, he is a great kid. He has never been in trouble. This year he became a real leader for our football team which finished 8-2."

    - "I know this, he is extremely excited about his upcoming trip to Colorado. I'll be real honest, if Colorado offers, it will be hard for him to turn that down."

    More good news on the recruiting front:

    Jeremy Langford has been offered a scholarship by CU and will be visiting the weekend of December 18th.

    Still some interest from Michigan State, but it's looking good for us. :thumbsup:

    Would be a nice complement to Mister Jones. Always have to be a bit nervous about the in-state school though.

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    Langford has now picked up the Michigan State offer we were worried about.

    This was despite them gaining the commitment of LeVeon Bell this week. A RB was suspended from the team for his role in that fight they had, so that may have opened up a spot.

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    Rivals now confirming:

    "They are definitely in the mix," said Langford of the Spartans. "I like the offense and I like the coaches. The coaches are nice there. I like the distance away from home. It is almost right around the corner for me, I like that."

    Langford lists Michigan State and Colorado as his top two teams.

    McConico has very little shot of qualifying. He is not an option. The Michigan State offer for Langford is not good news.

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    I would bet that they are talking to some Calif kids that don't show up yet on Rivals/Scout as having interest in CU. Just based on where this staffs contacts have been, they go into a HS coach and say they are looking for a RB and they are told, go check out such and such kid from our league who has offers to the WAC or something and there you go. I think we are seriously in plan B mode at RB.

    I would be pumped if we were in Plan B mode for RB. But we both know it is more like Plan D or Plan E now.

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    One advantage we do have over Michigan State is that we are recruiting him as a Running Back. MSU is recruiting him as an Athlete, which as everyone knows, is pretty much code for "we're moving you to defense". Langford did play some Safety in high school and definitely has the measurables for it. But when you look at his film, imo, it's obvious this is a guy that needs to get a legitimate shot at carrying the ball.

    Re: '10 MI RB Jeremy Langford

    I think getting this guy would be huge. Not that I watch all of them, but only a few highschool clips have caught my attention - Speedy's jumped out right away (much more impressive than Scott's), Danny Spond's and this guy's. Hope we land Jones but definitely think this guy could be faster/better.

    I think Slider is right here. Langford is going to visit MSU sometime in January and I expect him to commit there on that visit.
