    The first stop in January recruiting is Hawaii. CU is strongly in the mix for what may end up being the 4 highest rated prospects from the Aloha State this cycle:

    OG Paulay Asiata
    DE Juda Parker
    DE Lake Koa Kaai
    OLB KT Tuumalo

    Parker is at the US Army All-America game this week and is scheduled to make an Official Visit to Colorado for the weekend of January 21st.

    Embree and Cabral will be making in-home visits to Asiata, Kaai, and Tuumalo today.

    Said Asiata in a new Rivals interview: "I am still uncommitted," Asiata confirmed on Monday night. "I just have my trip to Colorado and then I will make my decision after that. … I have kept Washington, Arizona and Colorado [as my finalists]. It is just those three."

    Tui might put in more work over the next six weeks than Bandison did in five years.

    Embree and crew deserve a whole lot of credit if they can pull all of those guys. Get it done!

    Hawk could probably have got one of them, Embree and crew have a higher bar in recruiting. I demand at least two of these for signing day, if not more. I know the time is massively working against them, but lets dare to dream bigger.

    Asiata is one of the top 5 OLs in the west this cycle. He could play for anyone, imo.

    Koa Kaai is definitely legit at DE. His offer list pretty much says it all.

    Parker and Tuumalo are both tweeners. Parker is a DE/OLB who doesn't have ideal speed for linebacker and doesn't have ideal size for DE. But he's got great burst off the edge and could be an excellent pass rusher. Think Forrest West here. Tuumalo is a OLB/SS tweener. Probably not fast enough to play safety but needs to put on some bulk to play linebacker. Flies all over the field, though. If we ever utilize a "rover" package, he'd be perfect.

    I like all 4.

    I recall reading that Parker would be ideal for a 3-4 D. I also seem to recall that Embree wants to install a 3-4. Could be a good fit for both.

    Gonna be a 4-3 base.

    Parker's the kind of guy you can zone blitz with, though, and drop him into coverage while bringing a LB. There's a lot you can do with him. Good athlete.
