    On the roster:

    Joe Silipo, Senior

    DT/Snapper
    Cherry Creek HS, Colorado
    Attended two years and played one season at UNC, Greeley
    Was fourth on depth chart at snapper for CU in 2009.

    Mario Conte, redshirt Freshman
    Mullen HS, Colorado
    primarily a WR, learning the art of snapping

    Ryan Iverson, Newport High School CA
    Says he is committed to Colorado

    Stephen Barber, Dakota Ridge, Colorado
    Considered walking on to Colorado: Has attended CU practices this spring.

    Neither Iverson nor Barber show up in the Rivals or Scout databases in my quick search.

    I didn't see Iverson or Barber either. They're also not in the ESPN database. Makes it hard to create profiles on them.

    from my observations, we are lacking consistency at long snapper - especially on punt team. The two incoming guys (assuming they both come here) will have a shot at it.

    I think Iverson may be The Answer.... :thumbsup:

    Seriously, I think we're all going to realize how spoiled we've been the last few years. Never having to worry about a long snap is something you don't think about, unless something goes wrong. Hopefully somebody steps up...

    Dakota Ridge's Stephen Barber is also a very very good long snapper. If he chooses Colorado, I'd hope that works out for him. He's been at practice, so interest is there at some level. A friend that met him at the practice said he is a big, big kid, really looks the part.

    Just to throw you for a loop, Iverson is also a linebacker, just in case the snapping isn't where it's at.

    In this story that mentions Iverson, there's another twist ...
