Anyone have a sub?
HotRack, I think. Oh, wait, not that kind of sub.
Colorado landed a huge commitment Tuesday night from ESPN 300 signal-caller Tyler Lytle (No. 296).
What he brings: Lytle has good height and a slim build, but he has some strength to build upon. He is a surprisingly good athlete who, at times, is used as a designated runner. He's accurate. He throws to space rather than at a receiver, and he can lead receivers. He shows good range in the short and intermediate zones and throws a quick, catchable ball. Lytle has the arm to make all the necessary throws including downfield and outside the numbers when his feet are set and he's balanced. He shows a slightly quirky, quick delivery and the ability to change ball speeds. He pushes the ball just a bit. Most kids who are tall and have not grown into their body yet do not get rid of the ball as quickly as he can.
How he fits: This is a huge need for the Buffs as Sefo Liufau is now a senior and there is very little depth and virtually no experience behind him. Lytle could come in and have an opportunity to be a program changer.
Reminds us of: Seth Russell, Baylor -- A thrower who can run. They both have excellent stature coupled with the feet and instincts to make plays when things break down yet still be a passer on the move.
How the class is shaping up: Colorado has eight commitments to this point with a heavy presence in the state of Texas and California. OLB Jon Van Diest(No. 234) and Lytle headline the class so far as both are in the ESPN 300.
"Lytle's ESPN ranking was immediately downgraded to an Unrated QB..."
