    Way early, and a ton of offers to come, but I think we're going to get him.

    Adam will have an interview article as a follow-up to today's CU camp.

    But he did mention today that Mr. Van Diest was team chaplain when GB was coach.

    Colorado seems to pump out linebackers and offensive lineman. Would be nice to have an all Colorado linebacker core.

    Impressive highlights. The kid is a wrecking machine. Especially for a sophomore.

    Following up from Adam's interview posted in Robert's profile... Van Diest is an absolute monster. His film against Pomona, who has one of the biggest and most talented OLs in the state, was eye opening. Would be huge for CU if they are able to get him and his teammate, LB, Santino Marchiol.

    Must get. Not only does he play the biggest position of need on the team but he's also an elite prospect. Marchiol gets all the hype but Jon is every bit as good and in my humble opinion even better. His performance against Moretti of Pomona says it all. Beat him on several occasions and everyone is well aware of Just how good Moretti is. Van diest has incredible quickness. His shuttle time is on par with many WR.

    As TS referred to, this has already been linked in a different thread but if you haven't seen it yet, Adam has a good article up for Van Diest on Rivals (free): https://colorado.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1835533

    Also, his junior season highlights are up:

    I agree. Fairly close, but the difference in offers is totally due to how much Santino has marketed himself. Van Diest is the player the Buffs should want #1 from Creek.

    I don't think there is a chance we lose him to Nebraska, but I don't want to even imagine a scenario where we did.

    Good looking prospect. These are the kids that our staff need to keep home, the ones with an upside. Looks as though he trains at another gym, not with McChesney?
