    I'll go with a couple 2014 recruits who are coming back from injuries and have the potential to make huge impacts in 2015 as redshirt freshmen:

    Grant Watanabe (ILB)
    Dylan Keeney (TE)

    Patrick Carr. Normally you can't put too much stock into high school highlights, but he dominated really good Texas competition. He looks like the real deal.

    Damn. I'd completely spaced Watanabe. He could be an impact player for us this fall.

    Carr, Watanabe,

    and even though we have seen him before coming off a missed season and with some added maturity Ross.

    Carr because we haven't had "special" at RB for years, he looks like he might have that.

    Watanabe because we are razor thin at LB and after watching him in the Texas state HS football championship game, he is a football player. Could be a difference maker.

    And if Ross is close to what the rumors have (and I'll believe it when I see it) said we will have someone to take the pressure off Spruce and Fields.

    All the above plus Baltazar, minus Miller. Just think you won't see much from Isaac yet. He's technically where a true frosh should be and I wouldn't expect much yet therefore.

    If Baltazar is back to where he was as a true frosh at Boise St that would make things interesting with the added two years of maturity and presumable hunger to make an impact.

    Sort of need Watanabe to be healthy AND savant-like, like Dizon. His instincts and build looked like early PT to me.

    Alex Kinney. We're screwed if he isn't solid.

    Patrick Carr. He could be the dynamic RB CU has needed the last few years. Pumped to see what he can bring.

    I am also interested to see if Keeney is all that Mac is cracking him up to be.

    Good point about Keeney. I don't see Mac as a huge sunshine pumper...enthusiastic but not over-the-top BS that comes with some coaches...I think this kid will be good.

    There are going to be a lot of new faces on the field this fall. It probably hurt last season to not burn some redshirts, but it should begin to pay off this season.

    Curious to see if Ross continues to live up to the hype and if Falo and Watanabe can bolster our LB corps. Carr is my guilty pleasure interest. Not expecting him to be an immediate difference maker and primary RB, but could really change things for this offense if he is the real deal.

    Mathewes and Franke on the DL
    Keeney and Kinney
    Carr
    Lee Walker I'm hoping has taken a step forward

    Keeney is a good choice. He needs to show something in fall camp or we have some issues.

    The good old players we didn't see last year that have hopefully been made new by modern medicine:

    Bell, Henington, Watanabe

    I don't watch a lot of film but Franke's highlights jumped out to me his senior year. I'm really excited to see what he can do along with Witherspoon, who I think if he develops, will allow CU to use Chido in alot of situations and positions.

    Wright & Rippy.

    If if these guys can live up to their recruiting hype, our defense will be much improved. Lots of potential there that I would love to see perform.

    Kinney. Hopefully he can come in and be effective at both P and K.
