    I wanted to see who everyone thinks we need (position or exact player) to round out our class. I thought this post was appropriate after our win on Sunday. I'm not getting ahead of myself, but we have at least tied last years wins and the coaches have something to sell now.

    Current Commits:
    Watanabe #62 OLB (TX)
    Rodriguez #56 OT (TX)
    Bennion #58 DE (UT)
    White #60 S (CO)
    Lopez #75 DT (TX)
    Gamboa #38 ILB (CA)
    Apsay #48 QB (CA)
    Miller #110 OT (CO)
    Brown #128 OLB (CA)
    Waz #131 S (TX)
    Franke DE (CA)
    Shaver DE (UT)
    Keeney TE (CA)

    DE - 3 DT - 1 ILB - 1 OLB - 2 OT - 2 QB - 1 S - 2 TE - 1 (13)

    I am hoping that we can land at least 2 4 four recruits. Hopefully we can sign a big RB and a speedy WR. My break down is,

    WR - 2 RB - 2 CB - 2 OG/C - 2 TE - 1 ATH - 2 P/K - 1

    And more specifically:

    WR - Brown #54, Martin #130 RB - Starks #30, Canada #32 CB - OG/C - Noller #15, Jones #22 TE - Green #41 ATH - Ballage #52, Hartley #132 P/K -

    Noller isn't close to being a BCS recruit. Look at his recent drop in the rankings. We aren't recruiting Starks.

    I agree that we need to recruit better. However, I trust the coaches a lot more after the performance of Gillam and Chido.

    I'll take Nik's list in a heartbeat. Sure seems like he is drinking some Kool-Aid now too, but if we got 3/4 of that list that would be allsome

    Perfect. I'd be pretty happy with half of that list.

    Hartley's hard to get a read on. I love the offers from Wazzu, Houston and Oregon State since I've got a lot of respect for those coaches on WR evaluations. And I know HCMM and staff have scouted and liked him for a long time. But he's definitely more of an under-the-radar guy.

    I love Dotson, but his 4.5 speed is with a smaller frame and 30 fewer lbs than the 4.5s run by Enwere and Ballage.

    I do want 2 RBs, though. So if we don't land either of my top guys, Dotson would be 3rd on my list with Canada 4th.

    I stuck with guys we know CU is recruiting and has a reasonable chance at landing.

    Jaeden Graham as a LB wouldn't be so bad either.

    You project Holland at OG? His profile lists him at OT. With Miller and Rodriguez already in the class, I'm curious if you are penciling Holland in at OG due to the numbers at OT and are speculating that's where he'll ultimately end up.

    Just a hunch, but I think if we stay on Risner, he'll change his mind. All we have to do is show a pulse and we're automatically a better option than KSU.

    Holland is listed at 6'4" on the premium sites. For the BCS, it would be unusual to play OT at that height even if it's camp verified / legit. Bakhtiari was a notable exception. And, honestly, most prospects play tackle in high school and get listed there but then many see a move to guard in college. Not a lot of high schools put their best OL at guard.

    Yep. That would pretty much put an end to the argument that we shouldn't expect kids with other offers to come to CU.

    We need more hyperbole and bad arguments about recruiting

    Saw him in person this summer and if he is 6'4" he is barely, I'd guess a touch shorter. Definately has the build of a guard. Looking at Miller and Rodriguez it looks like M2 wants tall tackles who are highly mobile.

    It also seems like the strategy is to recruit quality athletes and then worry about fitting them where the can contribute most so he could end up at tackle but I wouldn't expect it.
