Clay Norgard: The first commitment of the 2012 class and is likely to enroll early next January. The new coaching staff really had to win him over, but were able to do it pretty quickly. He only had a CU offer at the time of his commitment, but I think some schools really wondered if they stood a shot against CU so they were going to wait before offering. Cyler Miles: Offers from CU, Arizona State, Baylor, Illinois, Notre Dame, Utah, Vanderbilt, and Washington. Think he will get attention from other Pac-12 schools as the summer approaches. He is the one in-state player I am not very confident in landing. Paul Thurston: He is arguably the top player in the state and is piling up offers from programs all over. He currently holds offers from CU, Arizona State, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, Stanford, and Utah. I really like our chances here and think it is likely he will be a commitment by or on Junior Day. Shane Callahan: Last Fall, it appeared that Callahan might be the top prospect for the in-state class in 2012. It has not quite worked out that way, but Callahan is still a very good prospect. He currently holds offers form CU, Arizona, Michigan, and Utah. I like our chances here, although a Notre Dame offer could change things. In the end, I think Callahan will take his time with the process and will be a late-summer commit at the earliest. Evan Baylis: He is a prospect that seemingly flew under the radar for a while, but is certainly getting major attention now. He currently holds offers from CU, Arizona, Boise State, CSU, and Michigan. I think there is a good chance that Baylis is a commitment by or on Junior Day. Alex Kozan: The type of player that CU might have slow-played in the past. Right now, he has offers from CU, Arizona State, and Kansas State. Kozan is another player I could see committing on or by Junior Day. Overall, I think CU is in a great position with the Colorado prep players for the 2012 class. We should be able to land 4-5 of the above players and perhaps any late bloomers. You will also notice that several of the same schools are popping up: Arizona, Arizona State, Notre Dame, Michigan, and Utah. -Arizona's tie to Colorado is former Grandview High School and Buffs standout Ryan Walters. -Arizona State's ties to Colorado include former Buffs assistant Craig Bray and Scott Brown, recently hired away from CSU. -Notre Dame's tie to the state is former Colorado Springs resident and CSU star player/assistant coach Tony Alford. -Michigan's tie to the state is Fort Collins native and former CSU player/assistant coach Darrell Funk. -Utah's ties to Colorado seem mostly due to proximity.
