    Don't expect Thennell to have any kind words for CU.

    Let's not start this in a recruit thread. I'm sure that Thenell will support his players and be very enthusiastic about them getting an opportunity to play for CU. The guy's a successful professional who has been doing this a long time. He went to CSU and had a problem with Hawkins. That describes a lot of in-state HS coaches. He'll support his players and give a professional recommendation on CU based on MacIntyre, his staff, the on-field performance the next couple years, the new facilities, the Pac-12 competition, and the personal situation of what's best for the player. Let's leave it at that.

    Say what you will about Mac, but he has done a hell of a job rebuilding some in state connections that were destroyed by the previous 2 coaches.

    2017 may hold the most talent in any recruiting class CO has had in a very long time. That quote sounds like McElroy would commit today if UCLA offered. Not good for CU.

    This kid may be the best RB in the state, when he brings his A game.

    He has returned a kickoff for a TD in every game so far this season. Two of them were called back, but he has physically taken one back every game. He's big and extremely fast. He'll most likely get that UCLA offer.

    Ah, the lure of Hollywood. California is great to visit and I can see a kid going there for a visit and thinking it's the end all. My kid loves the South Bay area. But he's really missing Colorado and can't wait to get back. DON'T DO IT MARCUS!!

    I thought I read somewhere that he will be here, but I couldn't find it.

    The article you quoted from WR is nearly a year old, hopefully he's getting over his calfatuation.

    McElroy has been up to CU countless times since the Buffs offered him when he was still a sophomore. His father informed me he has trips planned to check out Purdue, Kansas State, Wyoming and Air Force in the coming weeks.

    McElroy has some good tape, but IMO you can't fully appreciate his skills unless you see him in person at a game. Versatile, agile, good burst. He actually reminds me a lot of Michael Adkins, but obviously you'd hope he proves to be more durable and focused in college.

    I think he is a more fluid runner than Adkins.

    McElroy hudl highlights are impressive. He looks like an all around solid back, speed, moves and some power

    Hope there is a spot for him. Can't imagine we take more than 2 running backs. There are a couple RBs who have high interest in the Buffs.

    FWIW - I've heard from people I trust, including someone close to McElroy, that there is a good chance he will decide later this summer.

    But wait, that would mean Howell was mistaken.
