    Josh Scott, Addison Gillam and Juda Parker amongst players honored at CUSPY’s
    Full CUSPY’s write-up can be found at*cubuffs.com. Some excerpts:
    - Rune Oedegaard (skiing) and Josh Scott (basketball) were the co-recipients of the Male Athlete of the Year Award, the second straight year the award was split between Oedegaard and a men’s hoopster; he shared it last year with Andre Roberson.
    Scott became the team’s most consistent performer after junior Spencer Dinwiddie was lost for the season with a knee injury.* Named a first-team All-Pac 12 performer, he averaged 14.1 points and 8.4 rebounds per game, blocking 84 shots in leading the Buffaloes to a 23-12 record and a tie for third in the conference.
    - The Male Freshman Athlete of the Year Award was the first in the 14 years of the CUSPY’s that any honor was shared among three athletes – and each recipient in any other year could have easily stood on his own.* Ben Saarel (cross country), Addison Gillam (football)and Mads Stroem (skiing)were the tri-recipients.
    Gillam set several freshman records on the football team, including 119 total tackles, a number that led the entire team, the first time a freshman has ever done so.* His 78 solo tackles were also a frosh record, as were his 18 tackles against Oregon for a single-game.* He played 838 snaps from scrimmage, the most ever on defense by a Buff freshman.* He also led the team in third down stops (15) and in tackles for zero (11).* He earned first-team Freshman All-American and honorable mention All-Pac 12 honors.
    - The SAAC Distinguished Service Award, presented to senior members who contributed significantly to the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, was given to nine seniors: Aschenbrenner, Hunsucker, Kipp, Beau Gamble (basketball), Lindsay Hubbard (cross country and track), Hayley Hughes (soccer), Winde Janssens (tennis), Fletcher McDonald (skiing) and Juda Parker (football).
    Former Buff Jermane Clark killed in North Carolina
    From the Greensboro, North Carolina News-Record … An N.C. A&T University student was shot and killed Tuesday night on the street in front of his home.
    Jermane Darnell Clark, 22, of 425 Stedman St., was shot about 11 p.m., police said. Police found Clark in the 400 block of Stedman Street, said Capt. Mike Richey.
    “It looks as though he was approached by one or more people, an argument ensued and he was shot as a result,” Richey said. Clark was taken to Moses Cone Hospital, where he died. Richey said it is unclear how many times Clark was shot.
    Police are still investigating what sparked the argument. Police do not believe Clark was robbed. Investigators are still searching for a motive in the shooting.
    Richey said although Clark was a student at A&T, the university does not have anything to do with the shooting. Clark was a pyschology major from Winston-Salem who also was a linebacker on the football team.*Clark played in six of A&T’s 11 games during the 2013 season and assisted on one tackle against Hampton.
    Clark graduated from Oak Ridge Military Academy after attending Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem for two years. He spent his freshman year of high school in Lynchburg, Va.
    Clark began his college career at Colorado. But he left the program in August 2012 after several players on the team were involved in an incident with a pellet gun, the Daily Camera of Boulder reported. Clark, who was a redshirt freshman at the time, was not charged, but the newspaper reported that Clark decided to leave Colorado because of his involvement in the incident and family issues.
    …. Here is information from Clark’s bio from cubuffs.com … ESPN ranked him as the No. 93 player from North Carolina (the No. 10 outside linebacker).* He played running back, linebacker, defensive end, safety, wide receiver and saw action as a kick returner and on other special teams units throughout high school.* He spent the 2010 season at Oak Ridge Military Academy after attending R.J. Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem, N.C., the previous two years.* He spent his freshman season at E.C. Glass High School in his native Lynchburg, Va., and graduated from R.J. Reynolds by the end of his junior year before enrolling at the Oak Ridge Military Academy.* He played running back, safety and outside linebacker in helping independent Oak Ridge to a 10-0 record.

    Post-Spring Depth Chart released
    Somewhat more quickly than last spring (which makes sense), the Colorado coaching staff has compiled and released its Post-Spring Depth Chart.
    The full list can be found and downloaded here, but here are some highlights:
    - There are no favorites in the backfield. Junior Christian Powell is listed first, but senior Tony Jones, sophomore Michael Adkins, and red-shirt freshman Phillip Lindsay are all listed with an “OR”, meaning that the coaches have not drawn any clear-cut distinction amongst the three;
    - Red-shirt freshman wide receiver Bryce Bobo is listed as the No. 1 “X” wide receiver (though Tyler McCulloch is listed as “injured” at that same position), with two seniors, Nelson Spruce and D.D. Goodson, listed as the other starters at wide receiver;
    - Sophomore tight end Sean Irwin has supplanted returning starter Kyle Slavin as the No. 1 tight end;
    - If the Buffs were to line up today, the Buffs would have two seniors, two juniors, and a sophomore along the offensive line. Sophomore Alex Kelley would be the starter at center, flanked by two fifth-year seniors at guard – Kaiwi Crabb and Daniel Munyer – and two juniors at tackle – Marc Mustoe and Stephane Nembot (this lineup could change, though, if injured Jeromy Irwin or junior college transfer Sully Wiefels have an impact during fall camp);
    - There are familiar starters along the defensive line, with juniors Tyler Henington and Josh Tupou joined by senior Juda*Parker. A red-shirt freshman, Derek McCartney, is listed as the No. 1 right defensive end, though sophomore Jimmie Gilbert, injured this spring, will also play at that position this fall;
    - Both of the academically suspect defensive linemen – Samson Kafovalu and Justin Solis – are listed on the depth chart, but there status for the fall won’t be known until after the spring grades are in (in a few weeks);
    - The linebackers appear fairly set, with two sophomores – Addison Gillam and Kenneth Olugbode – joined by a senior, Woodson Greer, in the starting lineup;
    - Greg Henderson is set at*left corner, with Kenneth Crawley “OR” Ahkello Witherspoon playing right corner. Chidobe Awuzie is the first to come in to play at nickel back – which will be most of the time. Jered Bell returns at one safety, with Tedric Thompson taking over for the departed Parker Orms (though Terrel Smith is listed as “injured”, and will compete for the stating job this fall);
    - Three year starters Darragh O’Neill and Will Oliver return as punter and place kicker, respectively. The only possible surprise may be that Diego Gonzalez has not taken over the job as kickoff specialist.

    Saturday Edge features CU’s Spring Practice Report
    The Saturday Edge has published its listing of Spring Practice recaps. The recap for Colorado was written by, well, me.
    I was asked to write about strengths and question marks coming out of spring practices, breakout players from the spring, grades for each unit, and a prediction for the upcoming season.
    Most of my responses will be familiar to you, but if you want to check it out, here is a link to The Saturday Edge.
