    Early list looks like

    Evan White
    Kaleb Hill
    Kolin Hill
    Deshane Hines
    Glen Ihenacho
    Trevor Kelly
    Hanuteli Vatuvei
    Pio Vatuvei
    Rick Gamboa
    Donovan Lee

    (info listed on pay sites, no sub required for scout/247s)

    You have to imagine Apsay will be here along with a couple other commits

    We'll probably get recruiting violations for letting the kids use department jackets.

    What a huge weekend. If we get 2 to 4 of the non-committed players from this weekend that will immediately make us a solid class. All on the list would be great, but I am really hoping for Louisi. Does anyone know if his brother is coming?

    Not the coldest in three years. Last winter there was a brutal stretch where it didn't get above single digits and in January 2011 the highs were below zero. Still, sucks that the weather is gonna be cold, hope the environment wins out.

    The cold weather doesn't scare me. People know it gets cold here. A lot of people actually believe Boulder and Denver are mountain towns anyway.

    The elevation and cold weather only serve to give us better home field advantage (once we have enough talent to compete).

    These kids are committing to the staff, the system, playing time, education and the program's potential over weather. And of course, wins count for more than anything.

    If a kid can't handle the cold, I don't want him! Only tough guys need apply. :lol:

    Hey, you never know what will appeal to a kid. Plus, the entire central US, including Texas, is going to be colder than a witch's tit in a brass bra. Colder than a well digger's ass.

    According to the news this morning, the coldest temps in 3 years. I'd research it, but I'm sure you will for me. Just repeating what the newsman said.

    Not going to pretend that unseasonably cold weather is a good thing or even a neutral thing. It would be better if it was 60 and sunny.

    But if the weather is going to determine how well this staff recruits, we've got big problems.

    I can attest - 35 degrees here in merry land feels like 20-25 in glorious Colorado. If they can't hang, we don't need their candy asses.

    And the logic of having a ton of recruits in when there's no game is ….? Or maybe that's a good thing.

    Yeah, it's not like this is NCAA 14 and we'll lose visit points because there's no game.

    Uh, maybe because there's a basketball game against the #2 team in the country with a packed house of CU fans.

    I really, really want Vatuvei. He looks like he could come in right away and replace CUD. I like Reed and Gilbert okay, but this guy is fast and weighs in at 285. Seems like a really good DE prospect.

    The cold weather is a huge advantage for CU. Allows for bonding experience while ice fishing in Boulder Res.

    ^This I wonder if Oregon and UW are worried if it rains during one of their recruits visits. Everyone knows it gets cold here.

    The campus, Boulder, and the Flatirons look even more beautiful with a coat of snow. If the cold weather is a deciding factor, then that kid really shouldn't be considering us.

    When the weather's cold
    the liquor flows
    and the coeds
    look for friends
    to warm their beds

    As long as the staff isn't paying for them, I'm all for it.
