    This year, more than most, don't get hung up on ratings. There are a ton of guys who will be 3* prospects from the west who are rated outside the top 20 OT or OG prospects who would usually be 4* or just below and in the top 20 in other years. It's ridiculously deep this year. Colorado has as many 4* caliber guys as you might see out of California in most years -- and California is also stacked this year. We're also seeing multiple top OLs from Arizona, Nevada and Washington out of the west.

    Good year for CU to be loading up. Even if we get what look like 2nd tier guys, in most years they'd be 1st tier guys.

    Now we just need some damn OL commitments to get this thing rolling.

    I'd build a team around 3* OL that can come, redshirt and sit for another 2 years before taking the field. The 5* and 4* OL are great and would love a class full of them, but this is usually one place where I'd rather have a huge pipeline than 4* players that are severely needed and have to play as true freshmen.

    How many OL are we graduating?

    We haven't signed one yet. That's a problem.

    It's June 9th. Offensive linemen usually don't commit early unlike QBs.

    Technically, neither has any other college in the nation.
