    Also says academics are very important and he wants to major in Computer Science. How does our Computer Science program rank against Duke's?

    That kid is clearly related to John Elway.

    Looks like a guy who should GS for us and would be better off having 6 years to get the ability and body in tune. The offer list is surprising.

    How in the world does a kid like this not get offers from CSU or CU when he is sitting in our backyard and is being offered by conference rivals. I don't understand the recruiting game sometimes.

    There are different schools of thought when it comes to OL and QB for sure. A guy good for Alabama may not be the guy for Oregon.

    In this case, it would seem that this kid would be a good fit for CSU which runs a Pro-Style not unlike Oregon State or San Diego State. The KSU offer is quite different though.

    Comes down to what the position coach likes to work with as "starting material". Oline guys have 2-3 yrs generally before they are ready. Rips evaluation of QBs was much different than our current QB coach. I don't believe Dillon was coveted by more than a handful of programs, but to Rip and Embree, he was the cat's meow.

    Positions like CB and WR tend to rely more on God Given ability rather than techniques and coaching... In the end, it's just personal choice I guess.

    So Elway's not paying us to force him out of state? Shucks.

    Don't get why CSU isn't on him. But with Valor kids they do get a LOT of out of state attention compared to other HS and their coaches have a lot of connections with college staffs. Not saying he's only getting offers because of those connections but it definitely helps. Personally I'd like us to take this kid and Holland and in addition with Isaac Miller give us 3, instate, big bodied. solid developmental, good OL that know how to win as they have all own state championships in HS. It definitely helps a team if they are full of winners in my book.

    Would be interested to hear Maximus' opinions on him and the other OL in state this year. Normally he's already in on that.

    Still think he is a development type guy but I don't like seeing KSU take 2 kids from inside the borders.
