    I think you've got a good chance of getting your wish.

    Rivals Premium Update Aug. 2

    He has at least 7 offers now, but says most interested in Colorado and Arizona.
    Spent summer rehabbing knee (torn ACL), but says he's fully recovered.

    Might come to the CSU game.

    Sounds like ESPN doesn't have a clue because they don't even has us listed under the schools he's considering. :confused:

    That's typical. ESPN doesn't really have a clue about recruiting outside of looking at everyone else's top ten lists.

    I can be way off on this, but I think ESPN Scout Inc. seems to be seriously underfunded. I think there are about a handful of guys trying to sift through thousands of kids.

    That's the approach most teams are taking with him. I say roll the dice and try to bring him in. Rodney Stewart also blew out his knee his JR. year.

    Rivals Update

    Anthony Beard says he will take an official to Colorado this weekend, or if Colorado doesn't come through with details and a final plan, he might visit CSU instead. His HS team has a bye weekend and he wants to take an official ... somewhere.

    Colorado is supposed to "let him know" if this is a good weekend for him to visit. I hope so!

    Mine too but with the way things are going, all these guys on the list might be a pipe dream.

    Visited Baylor. Has a new top 5 of Arizona, Arkansas, Baylor, Colorado & Texas Tech. Among those, the only schools that have offered are Zona and CU. Still wants to set up a visit to CU.

    On the academic side, he wants to major in Wildlife Biology. I don't think we have that at CU, but I did find something in the Biology Department called and EBIO (Ecology & Evolutionary Biology) that seems to prepare you for the same career options and then some versus a BA in Wildlife Biology.

    Re: '10 TX MLB Anthony Beard

    :lol: I was actually going to major in wildlife bio and CSU is a good school for it as is Wyoming. I think Arizona was up there on the lists I was looking at, so that may be bad news. I'm not sure of the difference between EEB and Wildlife, but I assume it would suffice as undergrad work, as would any generic Biology degree.

    Good news!

    AZ is reporting on Buffscoop that Beard is among the 3 visitors this weekend (Ringo had said there were 3 but only reported Whiteside).

    Beard's still one of the guys I really want in this class. Hopefully we can lock him down this weekend. :thumbsup:

    Yep. We've already got the commit from Lowell Williams and it looks like we're in the lead for Evan Palelei too. Then there's 4* JUCO Derek Earls that we're right there on. This has a chance of being a very special linebacker class.

    And I think it needs to be since we're graduating Burton, Mohler, Stengel & Smart, we lost Katoa, it's too early to tell on Webb & Nobriga from the '09 class, and at this point it doesn't look like we're getting much from the '07 Ahles/Hartigan class.

    No complaints about how either of those risks have turned out (West & Speedy).

    I think we need to sign at least four LBs in this class with everything you mention.

    Re: '10 TX MLB Anthony Beard

    Just read a post by Adam over at Rivals. Premium article coming up soon, but the gist of it is that Beard fell in love with CU, we're his strong #1, he was tempted... but he's probably going to wait to commit.
