    Henington had 11 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries and 104 tackles as he anchored the interior of the Mullen defensive line as a junior.

    His dad played football for Texas Tech and his mom ran track there. But CU is the program that has been most in contact with him, according to Adam at Rivals.

    And here's some wrestling footage so you can get an idea of his how well he uses his hands plus decent feet/agility for his size (I love interior linemen who are also wrestlers - they develop those attributes and understand leverage):

    Ryan Casey scooped it: http://www.denverpost.com/preps/ci_17683018

    Hopefully he'll stop by to let us know if he had any other offers, if he's attending CU's Junior Day/ Spring Game, etc.

    Did we ever have a pre Spring Game commit under the old regime, let alone 3? If you only started following recruiting a few years ago you´d have thought it was illegal to have guys commit before September.

    It was okay to commit to CU before September as long as you ultimately signed your LOI somewhere else.

    Solid start to the DL recruiting. Give Henington a couple years to gain weight and I think he can be a contributor.

    Hopefully he and Norgard can get in the ear of their fellow in-state prospects on Junior Day.

    :thumbsup2:

    This staff knows the deal and they are getting out early. I have no concerns. This staff gets it about the DL and this is a good get.

    Welcome Tyler :thumbsup:

    From the videos the 265 seems to be a real number and a solid 265, not a bunch of puppy fat. Should be able to add 25-30 lbs pretty easily by the time he gets to Boulder. Also 6'5" with reasonably long arms along with the balance and leverage developed as a wrestler. This is a legit defensive tackle get.

    Going to be nice to have some guys already committed at junior day, a guy this big will get noticed and may help inspire some others to jump on board when they are all here together.

    Welcom Tyler, you are going to be a part of something special in B&G.

    Could this be the rise of a calmer, less syko buffsyko? With a staff that understands DL recruiting, we might have to rename you buffmello...
