    Seems like we are pretty high on his list despite the new offers coming in.

    Went ahead and updated the profile.

    Are we recruiting him as an ATH or QB?

    I assume athlete as he was backup QB and played Safety last year but moves into the starting role at QB this year. Also it was Mac who offered him, not Lindgren, I assume Lindgren goes and watches each QB throw before we offer them.

    Important to note though:

    Would be a good fit at Airforce at QB. Will be a good DB at CU.

    He's made it pretty clear QB is his preference.

    Adam has a new article on Rivals about his visit. It does seem like he is very high on CU, is open to playing on either side of the ball, but would probably prefer QB. This should be interesting to see how it plays out. I wonder if we try to get 2 QBs, Moran and another more QB only guy.

    Or if we don't get one of our top targets, like Noyer on his visit next week, if Lindgren and Mac would be willing to have the QB offer go to Moran and say he starts out as a QB prospect, but if he doesn't beat out his peers within a few years, could switch. Kind of nice for a QB to have that option since, as we know, many good QBs never win the starting job.

    Got a feeling we get the one Oregon State doesn't want.

    Well it is a weird situation since we offered Moran as an athlete. It will be interesting to see if Moran really believes his long term position is quarterback.

    Since it's Moran's choice where he plays, then I don't see how it would be a factor, we basically offered him as a QB if that's his preferred position. The real factor would probably be the timing, Moran has said he won't commit anywhere until he's had a chance to show his skills at QB. I think we end up with whoever commits first, which is probably Noyer. Assuming someone doesn't swoop in for either one which is entirely possible.

    What are you talking about? We didn't iffer Moran as a qb and Oregon state did. If he is more confident in his ability to play defensive back or wide receiver then who knows where he stands with OSU.

    No, we did "iffer" him. "We'll give you a shot at QB if you want but we may move you somewhere else if that doesn't work out."

    Per Adam: Moran told me the following when I asked him what position Colorado is recruiting him for: “They said they would let me go there, try out both sides of the ball, and whichever one I liked more, they would respect my decision and let me roll with that.”

    Pretty sure that could be considered a QB offer if he wants it to. He's never played WR, so I don't know where you're getting that from.

    I'm pretty sure that's for wide receiver since he is being recruited as an athlete.

    Moran indicated that he coaches told him that he would be granted an opportunity to play QB here if he accepted the Buffs offer. He's being offered as an Athlete to either play QB or S. I think he ultimately ends up on the defensive side of the ball, but he's also the starting QB for the first time this season, so it should be interesting to see what he can do on the offensive side of the ball.

    I never saw that update. All I saw was that he was being recruited as an athlete here and undecided on which side of the ball that would be.
