    Not much to say at this point. I found that he was home schooled through the 8th grade and started football as a freshman at Liberty. He's been hitting some combines (Under Armour, Houston Nike) and getting some exposure. Plays on a good high school team in Texas 4A.

    Would like to see some film, because with him being unrated by the premium services and holding a low D1 offer list other than CU it's hard to have much of an opinion.

    It seems like CU is offering a bunch of 2nd tier prospects now

    It also seems like Marshall as a recruiter has been underwhelming.

    I really hope we can get Marshall and Brown some help on the recruiting trail. They're obviously good coaches and can identify talented players, but they must not be overly personable or something.

    There's a balance. Those guys have the chops as coaches and they are working hard in recruiting. They are the types who get a bunch of guys once the program is winning and kind of sells itself. We have the opposite problem with some of our other guys, lots of charisma and will eventually be great recruiters, but they don't have the resumes yet as college coaches.

    Figure that almost this entire class will be closed by Embo, EB, Tui, Kennedy and Cabral. And Brookhart could surprise. He's good.
