    ASU is all over Colorado. Thats what 3 guys you've posted that don't even have CU offers, and I think most of them don't have CSU offers either. What is up?

    ASU made a lot inroads when Matt Lubick (Sonny's son) was down there as recruiting coordinator. They generally get at least one player a year from Colorado. Ezekiel Bishop, Nduka Onyeali, Matthew Tucker, Andrew Sampson, and Jack Elway have all gone there in recent years.

    ASU is usually one of the first schools to offer Colorado prospects. They seem to have very good relationships with Mullen and Grandview among others.

    BTW, CSU seems to have given up on in-state prospects. The only players with serious interest in them are Joey O'Connor and Jordon Vaden. Otherwise, they are pretty ambivalent. They offered Alex Kozan last week, that is straight out of the Dan Hawkins recruiting playbook right there.

    CU seems to be passing on him. Is a tweener (DE or LB?) and may just not be a good fit for what they want to run here.

    I'm a tad concerned that we are not connected at Valor Christian. Hope the Brock Bergland thing hasn't blown up into an issue. They should be a pipeline in coming years.

    Also - only seeing 2 offers on Scout and 1 on Rivals. Where are these other offers being reported from such as Uconn, Iowa...?

    He reported them in a new Rivals interview. They haven't propagated the info to his profile yet.

    VC had a BB issue before we did. Anyone who perceives it as an issue isn't a good fit for our program.

    CO DE back on the market

    Three-star defensive end Michael Mann (Highlands Ranch, Colo./Valor Christian) has jumped back into the recruiting process after being committed to Arizona State since July, according to multiple sources.

    Duke hitting the west hard this cycle. In addition to McCaffrey and Mann, they've got 4* Shaq Powell from Bishop Gorman and LB Deion Williams from Orange Lutheran.
