    Coming off a strong junior season, including all-district honors. Van Alstyne plays at the 3A level and is about 45 miles north of Dallas. Mayes is a TCU legacy and would likely commit there if offered.

    Offensive Tackle is certainly a point of emphasis thus far

    I really like our chances here, considering he hasn't visited yet.

    Agreed, it sounds like his visit may decide it.

    Also, Alex has a younger brother who looks like a very good Center prospect for 2014 and the two are definitely interested in playing college ball together.

    Help me out. I can't think of one thing Minnesota has that would be perceived as better than CU. Is this a matter of him getting along with the coaches really well? How could somebody choose Minnesota over CU? What do they have that we're lacking? I'm honestly lost on that.

    He just hasn't been to CU yet. No one can escape the allsomeness that is CU and Boulder.

    He has a good relationship with the Minny coaches. He actually really liked Kansas before the coaching change there (believe he would have committed there already if that had not happened).

    Minnesota has brand new facilities. Beautifully done. There's concern there, though, that they didn't get the recruiting bump the last 2 years those facilities should have allowed. Changing coaches again was a last gasp effort to capitalize before it's too late.

    Mayes said he has no preference for a particular conference and whether a school will allow him to play in Texas in front of family and friends more than others. He said he likes the idea of playing for the Buffs in the Pac-12.

    "I'm really excited about Colorado and playing over there on the West Coast against all those guys," Mayes said. "There is good competition over there in the Pac-12."

    Just from that preview it sounded very good.

    It is. If the offer list stays like it is, I think he's a Buff. I'm worried about what may come out of his unofficials to Okie Lite and TCU before he gets to Boulder for an UV, though.

    I'm really high on Mayes. This is a recruiting battle we need to win.

    Losing to Minnesota would hurt.

    If for no other reason, we need him for the sideburns. Those rock.

    Committed to the Golden Gophers today. I wonder if the timing was at all related to our recent commit?

    He seems to have been set on Minnesota for months now.
