    Looking like a quality year for Oaks Christian next year. Riggins looks like a solid all around back, good at most things, not great at any one thing.

    Greg Biggins has an update with Riggins today. He will be attending a camp in So Cal where our coaches will be helping out (not sure which one).

    Haven't seen video of him at camps, but it seems like he gets mentioned a lot as a guy that makes everyone miss and catches the ball really well. I can see the coaches really digging those skills in a RB.

    Per Adam Gorney's Rivals story today getting Pac-12 love from Utah, UCLA, Oregon State and Washington to go with Hawaii ... hoping for more P12 offers.

    Committed to Hawaii. I doubt this is solid if bcs programs offer

    Alternative theory...

    Some players are "practice players" who, for whatever reason, look great in practice and just can't put it together when the real thing comes along. Others are the opposite. But 1-on-1's and a game situation are not necessarily the same thing. Perhaps his game film doesn't look good to coaches? Or perhaps he doesn't look as good playing in the more game-simulation type scrimmages? Or, still thinking here, perhaps he doesn't fit in well with the particular offensive schemes of the teams that have taken a pass? (Similar to how Montae Ball fell in the Bronco depth chart because he isn't as good at pass blocking as Moreno is.)

    Kind of hard to really know.

    I've got a lot of respect for Greg's evaluations, but each team is looking for their specific thing and recruiting is an inexact science.

    I was looking at his stats recently and there very well may be a problem once the pads go on. I think he was averaging about 4.3 yards per carry (not good in HS)

    Maybe a guy CU will still look at.

    (Adam is looking into it.)

    For anyone with a Rivals account,



    Riggins to consider options

    There was a chance D.J. Riggins would visit Colorado this weekend but that trip is off. Another one could be on for the three-star from Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian.

    We had to cancel his trip because both Ballage and Dotson want to commit and we only have 1 spot.

    Slider. I recommend you spend much more time in this thread here over the next 6 days.

    If he is willing to come and we have spots, why not let him come? Or do they know something that we don't (as in who will probably commit Feb 5?)

    Maybe we don't think he's good enough to occupy one of our scholarships for the next 4-5 years?
    Maybe he doesn't want to come?
    Maybe Adams just flipped Dotson?

    Funny thing about recruiting, we only get bits and pieces.

    I would guess the coaches are going all in on Ballage and Dotson.

    Poster on Rivals earlier in the week said it's not over, fwiw. Not sure if we flip him though.
