    Completely under-recruited guy who is starting to blow up. 1st Team All-Region with 150 tackles last year.

    Personally, I'm hoping he hears what CU coaches have to say. Some of those schools are really quite small.

    That article also said that he's a vegetarian. No doubt that he's going to love Boulder, right?

    Agreed. The only real reason to go to Maryland is the crabcakes.

    Crabs aren't vegetables?

    What's up with him being unrated? Not make any camps or what? Competition in that area?

    I thought the same thing. 6'3" 228 lbs and runs a 4.57 (obviously, these could be a little embellished) with 3 P5 offers?

    Yeah it seems strange. Maybe he's just one of those players that slipped through the cracks. It does happen, I don't think as much as years back.

    Either way, DJ Durkin obviously likes him, so a prospect to watch for sure.

    Hell yeah, he'd be a welcome addition to CU.

    Easy guess is he is 6'1 210. Durkin thrived at Florida with smaller, athletic backers but it only really works with a good defensive line.

    Still planning visit July 24th? If so that could mean good things for us. Would love to see him following Ralphie out onto the field on Saturdays.

    Seems 50/50 at the moment, with the UMD and CU visits deciding things. BBQ and other things hopefully gives us the edge.

    Like they way he reads plays and also how he hits. Seems to run well.

    I imagine he needs to put on 20+ pounds to play in the middle. Doable with a redshirt season.

    BBQ vs blue crab. Do we know who is catering? There is a lot of crap BBQ in this state and I wouldn't want CU Footballs success riding on most of it.

    Not really. There is a lot of crap bbq in Colorado but there's good bbq too. BBQ could mean burgers and brats and as long as there is a never ending supply that probably qualifies as good bbq to most 17 year old recruits:)

    Ugh. BBQ should never mean burgers and brats. And I agree that there is starting to be some real good BBQ here.

    Thankfully, the quality of the BBQ may have no bearing for him. What's going to be the never ending supply he will enjoy? The sauce, maybe the grilled veggies?
