    Ameen-Moore carries Mullen to state title

    By Kyle Ringo
    Special to ESPNRISE.com

    DENVER -- When the television cameras eventually find Adonis Ameen-Moore -- and they will, because they have a way of gravitating toward young, personable athletes -- they will like what they see. He has the million-dollar smile and the gregarious personality to go with it. He's quotable, charming and a straight shooter who has eaten just the right amount of humble pie.

    "My uncle named me," he said of his fitting first name. "You know, it's the Greek god of beauty."

    In the moments after the Colorado large-school state championship game was decided at Invesco Field Nov. 29 with Ameen-Moore's Mullen High School defeating Cherry Creek 20-16, many of the other 16-, 17- and 18-year-olds greeted interview requests with shyness or uncertainty. Ameen-Moore embraced every question with a where-have-you-been-all-my-life manner. He patiently answered every query, to the point that his friends and relatives began heckling reporters still peppering him more than 30 minutes after the game had ended, delaying their celebration.

    Prominence has its price.

    I've gotta believe that the big boy is going to outgrow the running back position. I thought he was taller than 5'10", though, so I've already been wrong about him.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    This has got to be priority Recruit #1 for the next 2 years....I've seen him live many times and was dumbfounded at his talent from the first game he played as a freshman....kid is an absolute bruiser with excellent vision

    I think he has a good shot at being the #1 RB recruit in the nation in the 2010 class

    I know nothing about this kid. So, why do I get the feeling that he will be swept up by Texas, USC, or Florida?

    DH needs to establish a full commitee focused on keeping all of our in-state kids. He needs to start as early a junior high, and reconnect will ALL CO HS coaches much like Mack does in Tex@$$. Of course he needs to win in field and get the nat'l spotlight back on CU as well.

    He is Jerome Bettis #2. I thought I read somewhere that Bama was his favorite. Or a school he liked a lot

    No. He'll be a good running back, probably even have the ability to change directions... :cool:

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    Call me crazy, but I think we have a better shot at Hinder than Ameen-Moore. It could be my deep seeded dislike for Mullen, but that program is filled with mercenaries. Mercenaries have no loyalty to anybody, much less their own community. Mullen players don't view Colorado as their home, and are therefore more difficult to convince to stay here. It's not to say that we have no shot, but we have no advantage over Notre Dumb, Alabama, USC, Oklahoma, Texas, whoever that we would have with a kid from any other Colorado High School.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    **** you both....:lol:....sign me up for 1 Mullen kid that turned down soccer scholarships to just step foot on the school of my dreams because CU & Colorado is home....that's such a BS blanketed statement I almost threw up for laughing too hard, since I can think of so many Mullen friends of mine that have contributed greatly to CU (sports & the school).

    I'm not 100% confident by this statement, but I think that Mullen (in recent years...not historically since they were a small boys school only until the late 80's) most likely has provided more football recruits to the Buffs than any other local H.S

    The only reason why Adonis will be a difficult recruit to real in will be because he'll be the #1 recruit in the nation and if we can't right the ship and start winning games, it would be hard for ANY kid to pick a floundering program like us. The "Cu is an up & coming program" BS has worn off....WE MUST WIN SOME GAMES THIS YEAR

    That's good that you and others are examples against the theory, but I think it holds some weight.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    Denver East - 2 recruits in 2009
    Mullen - ZERO.

    OK, so that's just one year, but still. Denver East isn't near the football factory that Mullen is.
    Instead of looking at how many Mullen kids come to CU, how about looking at the percentage of D-1 players from Mullen who go to CU compared to other schools? I don't have the figures, and they may be difficult to get, but I would suspect that a much lower percentage of Mullen D-1 recruits end up at CU as opposed to kids from other Colorado high schools. Mullen is stocked with D-1 talent. Always has been. It stands to reason that a program that pushes out so many D-1 kids would send a certain number to CU.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    Define 'recent years' and we'll go take a look.

    My comments were not related to all Mullen HS graduates, but specifically the football team. The football players are recruited from all over the Denver Metro area.

    And I did mention that there are folks who still go to CU, but it seems the majority of D-I level players have the mercenary mentality.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    I agree to a certain extent here and I've been blaming Dave Logan for being a terrible recruiter for his alma matter, and I have wished that we landed many more Mullen guys than we've been able to...BUT, this thinking that it's only Mullen is pure BS, because some of the biggest guys to leave the state have played for other programs especially Cherry Creek (yes, I will drag these scumbags in the debate as well :lol:)

    I'd be interested in comparing high schools in CO to see how many players that played D1 football went to CU & went elsewhere....I'm certain that Mullen would have a decent # that stayed & left as with many many other schools

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    There are currently 3 Mullen players on CU's roster. There are 4 Creek players and Mullen has had WAY more D-I talent than Creek in recent years.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    Like I already said above....I'm not going to completely disagree here, because there are a lot of kids that come to Mullen so that they can play in the spotlight and get some national looks

    I would also like to argue that CU hasn't done a really good job of persuing some of the Mullen guys as well....there were a few they could have signed last year that we didn't persue until too late...Charles Ragland & Alex Logan being ones that frustrated me

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    Considering they both played in the Title Game...I'm thinking this is an overstatement...despite the fact that I like hearing that Mullen > Creek :smile2:

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    Mullen is always loaded with D-I talent. Probably moreso than any other school in the state. Doesn't mean they are always the best team, although they're usually in the thick of it.

    And considering that Mullen won this year's title game, it would be hard to say they weren't the best team.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    There's only THREE kids from Mullen on CU's roster!?

    Hell, there's three from Boulder High (Smart, Gouin, Pericak), and Boulder High isn't anywhere close to the football factory that Mullen is.

    I think that seals it, personally.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    Ok...This is what I could find on Mullen recruits by going of the Colorado top 25 recruits list on Rivals and finding where they went...I only looked at Mullen, and I'm sure there's interesting info on other schools

    2009 - Mullen - 3 D1 Signings - (CU = 0/2 - Ragland was our fault and we never really wanted him)
    - Alex Logan – Cal
    - Ryan Hewitt – Stanford
    - Charles Ragland – Cal (CU did NOT offer til late)

    2008- Mullen – 4 D-1 signings - (CU = 1/2 of guys we recruited)
    - Bryce Givens – Colorado
    - Nolan Breswster – Texas (CU had no shot as his dad coaching @ Minn.)
    - Jimmy Miller – SDSU (CU Did NOT Recruit)
    - Jonathan Gaye – CSU (CU Did NOT Recruit)

    2007 - Mullen – 5 D-1 signings (CU = 1/3 of guys we recruited)
    - Clint Brewster – Minnesota (CU did not recruit)
    - Devin Agilar – Washington
    - Steve Watson – Michigan
    - Shawn Daniels – Colorado
    - Phillip Morelli – CSU (CU Did not Recruit)


    2006 - Mullen – 3 D1 Recruits (CU = 0/1 of guys we went after)
    - Chris Guarnero – Cal
    - Chris Carney – KJuco (CU Did NOT Recruit)
    - Ricky Brewer – CSU (CU Did NOT Recruit)

    2005 -Mullen – 3 D1 Recruits (CU = 2/4)
    - Maurice Greer – Colorado
    - Jesse White – OU
    - Grant Crunkleton – ASU
    - Ben Burney - Colorado

    2004 - Mullen - 0 Recruits

    2003 - Mullen - 2 D1 Recruits (CU = 2/2)
    - Brian Daniels – Colorado
    - Stephonne Robinson – Colorado


    Bottom Line: CU has landed 6 out of 14 (43%) of Mullen guys recruited....Definately not good numbers, but not bad either...BUT I do remember Barnett doing very well with Mullen guys (see 2003 & 2005 years) and Hawkins has yet to establish that relationship....this could obviously be due to our lack of success in recent years as well as Dave Logan being a TERRIBLE ambassador for the Buffs

    Dave's job is not to recruit for the Buffs. His job is to help his athletes get scholarships wherever they can & want to go.

    Re: '11 CO RB Adonis Ameen-Moore

    I understand that, and he does a pretty good job at that seeing that the guys that didn't sign with the Buffs on my list above went to Stanford, Cal, Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, ASU & Minnesota...I just wish that he could help Coach Hawk want to go after & then swing a few more of his guys our way :thumbsup:

    This is false. Brewer was CU commit up until the coaching change.
