    Give some props to lawdogg if he makes an appearance in this thread. He found the "heads up" on 247 sports that CU is expected to offer soon.

    :thumbsup:

    Fantastic prospect. I'm sure Kanavis sees a little of himself in this guy.

    "Outside linebacker/defensive end Bryce Cottrell (Plano, Tx./West) continues to see his stock rise in the spring evaluation period. Baylor (Phil Bennett), Pittsburgh, Tulsa, Rice and Texas A&M were at the school on Wednesday to see the 6-foot-3, 220-pounder with TCU expected today. LSU was by the school earlier in the week and is taking a long look at Cottrell as a weak side defensive end. He currently has verbal offers from Baylor, Mississippi State and Syracuse with Colorado expected to offer shortly."

    Arizona is involved here as well, so he is open to the Pac-12. If he stays at LB, I like the size. We are definitely going after bigger backers in this class.

    If we can get to Cottrell up to Boulder this summer (as expected), I think we will be in good shape here. Scout shows a USC offer, but not sure where they stand now that the sanctions are being upheld. Think there is the potential for a really good DE class for 2012.

    Really hope Kennedy can work his connections here in the DFW area. Cottrell has nice athleticism.

    Doubt we have a shot here. Hasn't he pretty much said he's going to USC or Oregon if they offer?

    Funny top 3 list if winning is his thing, though. Baylor and BC? :lol:

    I'm not sure what our chances are here to be honest. But I think it is pretty clear that Cottrell is willing to look at schools outside of Texas.

    USC will not be offering, they essentially told him that at their camp. Oregon can probably be considered the favorite, but the turmoil in that program is not going away. He showed interest in us when we first offered, I think it is reasonable to think we can get him to Boulder for an official visit.

    I hope we get him, he's a good looking DE in the making. I just see him as the type that goes for bigger and better and Oregon fits that profile perfectly.

    He's visiting Oregon and Arkansas in the next couple of weeks and then will decide between those two schools.

    Am I the only one concerned that me might not land a DE?

    I think you are going to be quite happy about the entire DL class, DTs and DEs, when NSD comes.

    Disappointing that we didn't get him, and that he's going to a conference rival just adds to the frustration. Ah well, more fish in the sea I guess.

    Anyone in particular you're alluding to?

    Kofavalu seems like a solid bet, Johnny Stuart as well. Not sure who else.
