    As a junior Letlow won the Colorado 2A state wrestling championship at 215 lbs, going 36-0 on the season.

    In track & field, he posted a 26.85 in the 200m and a 37'10" triple jump.

    Lots of message board chatter has popped up. Through 4 games this season, Letlow has 87 tackles. An all-around athlete, he is also averaging 45 yards a punt.

    Supposedly, Oklahoma has discovered him and has invited him to Norman for an official visit during the weekend of the OSU game.

    (FYI - Hayden, CO is in between Craig and Steamboat on the 40.)

    I put him as a DE, but he may be an OLB. Would probably play Beatty's LIZ linebacker hybrid position.

    Hat off to this kid. That is an impressive record and seems like he has some skill. I sure we offer him quick and he loves Colorado enough to stay in state. Honestly this sounds like a type of athlete that can develop and be very special. His intensity in those pictures alone would be enough for me to recruit him.

    I really hope that OU doesn't come in out backyard and steal another recruit away that comes back to haunt us at some point.

    Big brother plays LB for UNC Bears:

    Coy Letlow

    Looks like he is a redshirt freshman this year, 2009 graduate of Hayden.

    Scout has added an initial profile for Letlow.

    They have also written a pretty good article:

    There's something about this kid, his name, his attitude, his fierce victory photos that just screams:

    I'm gonna play Sundays.

    I surely hope we ARE recruiting him and glad to hear he came for the GA game. What a thrill that must be for a high school player to be around that win!

    Rivals has a profile up on Letlow.

    Adam Munsterteiger of BuffStampede has an article on Treyben. Couple of highlights:

    update on Rivals

    Says he is willing and interested in walking-on at CU, but ...

    Was leading the state in tackling at one point last season.

    Certainly worth giving him an opportunity to walk on. At 6'4" 220lbs if you get him on a strength and conditioning program and he is willing to put in the work I think he could really help the team out a few years from now.

    Curious why CU wouldn't invite him to walk on?

    Maybe the new coaches don't know who he is? Too focused on recruiting profiles (and small school kids rarely have much written about them.) I hope this was a momentary blip and doesn't indicate that they aren't examining all options, or having too many calls screened. I know one problem (from other HS players saying this), some schools make it clear who their recruiting coordinator is, so they can call/email that person and tell them the situation. We haven't had one listed for a long, long time, and the coaching upheaval may also mean prospects are having a hard time knowing who to contact.

    Just a possibility. See here? no recruiting coordinator listed.

    Treyben is a fierce competitor. Would really like to see him get a shot.

    No news on the football front, but Letlow remains undefeated this wrestling season. Still no word if CU has been in contact ...

    Steamboat Pilot, Jan. 24:
    Letlow, Domson shine for Hayden wrestling at event

    Senior 215-pounder Treyben Letlow went undefeated again, winning all five of his matches to stay perfect on the season.

    As a junior, Letlow went 36-0 last year and won the Class 2A state championship at 215 pounds.

    Crickets.

    He has some small-school offers, but is wisely waiting to see if other schools lose a top recruit and come knocking at the last minute. Give him credit: Treyben Letlow is a patient guy.

    He was already quoted as saying he loves CU and would consider walking on, but has not been able to reach anyone. This is why I keep bumping the thread. I am astounded that we haven't been all over this kid for a number of reasons.

    Come one, Treyben, don't give up. The guys are new, but they'll figure it out shortly.

    Verbal commitment to CSU-Pueblo.
    Said had preferred walk-on spots to CSU and Wyoming, but got a scholarship from CSU-Pueblo.

    I know we are closing out the 2011 recruit profiles, especially those athletes who aren't coming to CU. But wanted to wish Treyben Letlow a great career at CSU Pueblo. There's quite a few former Buffs on the coaching staff, and keep hearing good things about the program. I'm sure we'll hear good things about Treyben over the next few years -- and all I can say is, wish he'd be in Boulder, but at least we aren't playing against him and asking "how did we let him get away?"

    Just a quick update on his other sport, wrestling. After winning state title last year, as a junior, Treyben won his class again (pinning his opponent) at the state wrestling tournament this weekend. Had a perfect 33-0 season, and won his last 71 matches straight. Pretty amazing statistic.

    Steamboat Today story
    http://www.steamboattoday.com/news/2011/feb/20/haydens-letlow-takes-2nd-state-title/

    “I had a great run,” Letlow said. “That’s all I could really ask for.”

    I'm sure we'll be seeing him light it up in the UFC some day, unless he can beat the football odds.
