    Looks like he's still pretty raw, but still pretty impressive for how young he is.

    You like to see him get a little more fluid with his kick, punch, etc. It doesn't look all that natural to him. I would definitely say he has the body to play and the thick lower half to anchor and drive on the field. It will be interesting to watch this kids progress over the next year.

    Well Iowa is after him and you know that place is like a factory for great offensive linemen. I think many, based off these clips, will be taking a wait and see approach with him however there are a few things you can't coach on the field... 6'6", 6'7" with room to grow is one of those things.

    Speaking of Iowa, it is my hope that Embree can turn Boulder into an OL/road grading factory. Nothing speaks to recruits more than physical play. I think we got two solid ones this year with the potential for more.

    Won't hurt if we can get Solder and Miller to go first round the next two drafts.

    CU has not offered, but with the way his recruiting has blown up I don't think it matters. I'd expect Big 10 or Notre Dame.

    A lot of Michigan fans seem to think he will be picking them very soon. Should help with Thurston.

    Diamond chose Auburn today.

    That should cause them to pull out of the pursuit for Kozan's signature. It will make the battle between Michigan and Iowa a lot more heated, though.
