Should we be concerned with any of our commits??

    I know that this class has been really close, and have all basically been all over the mantra of The Rise is Real. My question is should we be concerned about any of these kids getting bigger offers, academic reasons, or kids simply changing their minds. Any of our commits taking any other official visits? A la Davis Webb:/
    As long as the wins keep coming, I know it will help keep kids committed. I just know some of these guys are having GREAT senior seasons. I just hope that it's not a catch 22. Go Buffs!!

    Yes. Some guys are likely to take other visits. And we will have attrition. I don't think I have ever seen an entire class stick with initial commitments. Of course, that works both ways and we stand to benefit on balance with the way this season is going.

    No specific information, but it's unlikely that everyone who commits will end up signing with the Buffs. That's just not the reality of how the recruiting game work. Not sure if that is something to be "concerned" about, because this should end up being a very good class for CU, even with some of the inevitable changes.

    Why the assumption that the only way the class could move is down?

    Presuming the team continues to perform on the field, there's a strong chance the class improves with any changes.

    It's funny, this has been my concern every year due to mounting losses over the course of each season. Based on the Buffs performance so far, I would think it would galvanize this class and allow them to close even better recruits. Here's to hoping their performance continues.

    If we can keep winning the odds are in our favor as far as flipping recruits goes.

    When you go after recruits who are good enough for other schools to want them other schools will go after them. Can't think of any schools that haven't lost commits.

    Hope is that as we continue to show that we are for real the guys we already have committed or already on the team can get their friends and teammates interested enough to give us a look.

    The only thing I'm concerned about is the class filling up so fast that we can't take all the 4* guys who want to join The Rise™.

    In the game I saw him in weeks back, I wasn't disappointed. Believe it was Nik and I talking about it.

    I expect our class to get better. Not worse.

    This Class is a good class. And will get better. Need the Dline center piece(s)

    Wondering how the 2016 class will end up. Attrition? Some homesick boys on campus.

    Is that a statement or a question?

    If it was a question, I would have used a question mark.
