    Tweet from a few hours ago:

    BobLichtenfels Bob Lichtenfels
    McKeesport (Pa.) four-star Branden Jackson will decide on Monday between UNC and Colorado for fifth and final official visit


    Bob Lichtenfels is the recruiting guy for Scout out of Pittsburgh. He's been with them for 8 years and is very well connected.

    Embree and company doing work!

    Visits taken:

    Texas Tech on 9/18
    Rutgers on 9/25
    Iowa on 10/22
    Oregon on 11/5

    Will it be Colorado or North Carolina in the next couple weeks for his 5th OV?

    Interesting note on Jackson: he was primarily focused on basketball until about a year ago. He's a really good hoops player and was close to quitting football after a position change.

    Yes, I'm listening. Embree stated if kids from the east want to be a buff he'll recruit them. I'd love to get him and his DT friend. I'm just wondering why these dl in texas and cali aren't getting offers besides seau, ka'ai, pete jr. Who knows, maybe lopa,and others will be making suprise visits over the next few weeks. They are working hard no doubt. I have to bitch about it every year,pay no mind.

    Hey, AB just wouldn't be the same without the occasional syko rant about DT's. Don't let us down now, brutha.

    Excellent! The Buffs are on the rise!

    This would be a great fit for both Branden and the Buffs.

    :smile2: That's great news! But it's DT fanboy to you. Isn't one of his teammates a damn good DT?

    I know he's not impressed with the ****hole that is Lubbock, Rutgers has no tradition and apparently Phil Knight's facilities weren't enough. Great news Branden! Now you get to take in the Flatirons.

    This might be one instance where having the last visit actually is a good thing.

    Looks like he is no longer visiting. Anyone know whats going on here? Rivals is still showing us as one of four finalists and it looks like that list has been updated within the last couple of days so hopefully were not out of it.

    Pitt came hard. However, since it's so easy to do an unofficial for the local school it seems weird that he cancelled the CU trip for sure in order to do the local OV. He does still list us in his top 4, as you said. I took him off the visitor list earlier today, but I'm not sure it's definitive that he dropped us for next week.

    Seems like many of the good players our new staff is after are also being pursued by the new staffs at Michigain, Pitt, and Miami. Makes me wish those schools had never fired there coaches.

    no confirmation either way, but seems unlikely he is visiting, unless he's really keeping it quiet.

    In an article dated Jan. 21, Rivals says "As it stands right now, Jackson's top four are Oregon, Texas Tech, Colorado, and Pitt."

    ... and then this: "Jackson has visited Texas Tech, Rutgers, Iowa, and Oregon. He planned to visit Colorado next weekend but cancelled that trip and is considering an official visit to Pitt."

    Happy if they commit, visits meh. We have plenty of room for 3 -4 DL now. Parker situation sounds less likely...
