    Thanks, bcs. Rep. I wasn't sure.

    I like the size, forty, the 4.3 shuttle, and the productivity (110 tackles with 5 sacks this year).

    Very solid walk-on who could earn a scholarship.

    Sweet. We could use about 10 more guys like this as PWOs at other positions.

    Nice pickup. Seems like the Mike is becoming like the FB in CFB. Situationally used.

    May be part of the reason that he didn't get much recruiting attention and scholly offers.

    Picked up a Northern Colorado offer so the kid has a free education option, or a walk-on option at CU among others.

    Really like the kid who wants to test himself against the big boys. You can always transfer to UNC and be a star there. Hope he shows he belongs.

    Unless his parents are rich...I'd advise him to take the free education. College is not worth the cost anymore.

    If you believe that you can play at the highest level and that is what you truly want to do then give it a try if you get an opportunity.

    He isn't talking about paying for 4 years at CU, his first year will tell the story. After one season on the practice field he and the coaches will have a pretty good idea if he belongs or not. If he belongs then he can earn the scholly and the rest is paid for.

    If it turns out that he doesn't have what it takes to play at that level he is still going to have the options at lower level programs. He will likely still have the UNC option, if not there are plenty of D2 schools in Colorado who would take a guy who was good enough to be a PWO at a PAC school.

    What would suck for him is going through the rest of his life wishing and wondering if he should have tried it at the highest level before settling for the lower level offer.

    Teenagers should chase their dreams.

    I'm thankful that CU is able to attract players of Berry's caliber to walk on. It enhances the program so much. And as any athlete will tell you with their teammates, it doesn't matter how you got there. All that matters is what you do once you get there.
