    Rivals article: Remember the name Shane Callahan

    [​IMG]

    Last summer, Chaparral head coach John Vogt referred to Brendon Austin as "the next Jack Harris". And last month, he called Shane Callahan "the next Brendon Austin".

    "Shane is kind of a mauler," said Vogt.

    Added Callahan: "I am a good pass blocker because I have a lot of length. … I am a pretty athletic guy for my size. I play basketball, too, so that helps a lot."

    "I have actually been up to CU a lot," he said. "I have attended some of their games and practices. I really like it up there. I love [offensive line] coach [Denver] Johnson there at CU. He is just a real good guy and it seems like their offensive line has a bright future.

    Scout: Introducing Shane Callahan

    [​IMG]

    The 6-6 285 pound junior to be has a big frame and mauling style that will catch the attention of DI programs.

    Q- Who is the best player you ever played against?

    A- "Freshmen year I was invited to the Nike Camp in Boulder and competed against some of the best upper classmen in the western region."

    Q- How do you think your coach would describe you as a player?

    A- "I believe coach Dobbs would call me a leader, smart, strong, and able to get nasty. He has told me that I am very coachable and respectful."

    Q- Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

    A- "Ryan Clady." [Clady played at Boise State under Dan Hawkins. Might help, assuming Hawk's still our coach for 2012.]

    CU is first up with an offer for Callahan after he had a tremendous showing at CU's Friday Night Lights Elite Camp.

    Looks like our biggest competition is going to come from Notre Dame on this one. We need a good season if we want Callahan to help lead us into the Pac 12.

    Callahan was at a practice this week and seemed really into it. His parents were there and nice folks. All seem really interested in the Buffs.

    Wow, this kid looks like another great prospect. Hawkins has put together a bitchin hog farm. Looks like Solder and Miller are sure thing pro's, with quite a few good space eaters coming up. Hopefully Callahan will be next.

    He made Scout's initial top 100 watch list for 2012. Looks like he is going to be a national recruit.

    4* initial rating. He's going to be one of the Top 10 OLs in the west, imo.

    When several people call him a better prospect than Jack Harris, you know Callahan has big time potential. Must get for the next coaching staff.

    Shane's a beast and a good kid. Anything Voght or Dobbs say about a player is true. Dobbs is one of the best people I've had the pleasure to have as a teacher. Hope we land him.

    FWIW, I'll be at the Chaparral/Mullen playoff game Friday night.

    Should be a good game - Chaparral has the best chance of any Colorado team of giving Mullen some challenge this year.

    I don't think it's really good or bad that Snow's an asshole. It just is.

    Callahan will be a kid whom takes quite a few visits before deciding IMO. I expect us to be right in it though.

    Notre Dame is likely to be a factor here.

    IMO. If CU comes out and has a very promising year (at least 8 wins) then I don't see why our Colorado kids would not strongly consider if not commit to the program.

    8 wins? I don't see it's happening. I know people are having high expectation now due to the good result from recruiting but can we stay in reality before they actually translate the recruiting to the performance on the field? 8 wins is too much for them, let alone the "at least"

    Whats wrong with 8 wins? Heck with the crap ass coaching staff we had last season we 'almost', should have had 8 wins. I am not talking about the recruits we just recieved. They don't do the game planning. I am talking about the new coaching staff we have who is seasoned. No, our HC has never HC'd before but, look at the last ninkompoop we had.... I think I am very grounded. If I were to have high expectatins of this next season I would exect the same season the KU had not just 2 or 3 seasons ago when they shocked the Nation. I have'nt started on the kool aide yet.

    Think about this. If I were a kid growing up in Colorado and I were a 7th - 8th grader watching the horrible team that was Colorado Buffaloes I would have reservations about playing there. Playing at home and things are all great but, if I wanted to at least win some games....CU was not very attractive. Face it, losing makes it harder to want to study, practice, just down right give all I had even in the place I love. It would be like living in Washington with all the rain. Can get very depressing.

    I'd like to lock up a number of guys before the season even starts.

    Callahan is on that list.

    Yep. He has been up to Boulder a couple times in the last few months, just need to get him up there again some this spring/summer and get him to pull the trigger.
