    Interesting tidbit from that article talking about Christian Cumber and Marcus McElroy on the prospect of going to the same school:
    Being that the Buffs have offered all three, this might help us out.

    Most underrated player in the state of Colorado. Ridiculous that his only offer besides CU is Montana. Not gonna complain if it helps to get him into the black & gold, tho.

    Has he not camped anywhere? Good size and decent speed for S coming out of HS.

    Like his film and his measurables, but I agree the offers don't add up. Is there some other factor here? did he play his entire JR year?

    Lack of exposure isn't an issue here. There have been A LOT of G5 and big time P5 programs sniffing around Mullen the past year or two. The lack of offers is a little concerning.

    Safety. I don't think he's got the hips for CB.

    6'1" 200+ lbs... Moves and tackles well. 3* 5.7 RR, 3rd-5th ranked recruit in CO and 28th ranked S prospect with 1 P5 offer. Do not understand.

    If the CU offer is good, I don't care so much what others think. Good players get overlooked, especially in states like Colorado. If Coach MacIntyre and JMFL think he's worthy, who am I to argue?

    If he could put on about 20 something pounds, maybe he'd have a shot at lb? Safety is probably right though.

    He is a bit of a tweener at this point in time, but I think Banks will grow into a linebacker. He seems to have the frame for it. The picture at the top of this thread is old... Banks has filled out quite a bit.

    Really like guys that are athletic enough to play DB, but put on some weight and move up to the 2nd level.

    Reminds me of Keelan Poole a couple of years ago.

    I was going to update the pic the other day. Unfortunately, the most recent pic I could find that best showed his current physique was from when he camped with the Nubs. And I'll be damned if I'm going to have a pic on this board with him wearing a t-shirt that reads "Go Big Red" on the front. And the 2nd best option was from the UCLA camp with him in Bruins gear.

    You mean "second worst option." Correct?
