    Can I get an update of the top 5 guys we have a realistic shot at now. This class seems pretty mediocre and I am curious who we are rounding it out with.

    I am high on Sefo, Parsons, Ross, Loud, and the beef at OL.

    I think we need to close the deal on one more high 3 star player and find more speed at WR.

    I would also like to get in on any of the top RB's that are left. I just don't understand how CU can't pull a top 35 RB every cycle.

    CU should always get the best kicker in the country also...I know we have to many on the roster now, but there was a good one right here in Colorado Springs Colorado. Did not even try and he is going to the SEC

    It's all a little moot if we lose out in epic fashion and bring in new coaches.

    Please someone give me a shred of excitement. Show me a list of a few top guys we are really in on.

    For me, success of this year starts and ends with keeping Parsons committed, adding a WR with speed, and getting a couple of LBs worth a damn.

    -Liufui is looking great, I think we're good to go there.
    -I'd personally go after another RB, but small not overly fast RBs are apparently our main target.
    -Can't say Hardaway is what I'd target at WR, but at least he's got size. Bobo is having a great year, I think he's a legit steal.
    -Not sure what we're after with LBs. Moffitt looks good, I'd definitely be happy with him. I thought we were going to go after the Latu twins, but it seems we never ended up offering the other brother. Colorito and Ragin seem to be people we're after. I'd probably group them with Jimmie Gilbert as guys that would be LBs for us but more rush end types that can drop into coverage. There's always Kaleopaa as well, I believe he has always been high on us, Arky, and Cal. Poor kid, his 3 favorites have tanked about as hard as you can.
    -Seems we're after that Tatum Taylor kid, which is great, but we were pretty late to the party. Either way, hopefully we add another DB to the class. How we aren't using our Westlake connections to go all in on Dashon Hunt has me beyond confused. Get that kid on the team now.

    Remind me on Liufui. What position does he play?
    Are we in on the Taylor kid from Texas at all. I was hoping we would have a legit shot at a 4* RB this year. I am guessing the injury to the kid from CO is going to really hurt his chances of being anything less than a RS next year.

    Almost every thread on recruiting is depressing right now. This class really seems to be lack luster. I sure hope we hit on our OL recruits.

    Realized you were talking about the kid at QB from Washington. Here I thought we were in on a kid named Liufui from somewhere.

    Hard to give an update on much right now. We might not see many more officials until after the season. Plus attrition is going to play a large role in how the class looks in February. If few players leave, we really do not have much room and grayshirting 4-5 players is not really an option.

    Doorman, maybe Hirsch, with Dillon steping up and Sefu on the way in.

    Also likely to lose a couple of the Fr. we are not expecting due to grades, homesick, etc.

    Still going to be a small class.

    Pretty well. The problem is the players we really need have better options.

    CU needs receivers, BAD... Fast, tall and athletic types..that will go up and get the ball out of the air...no more banged up, injured slow and sloppy kids...got to stretch the field and get angry type players to do this.
