    He was very impressive at a recent 7-on-7 tournament.

    One of the things that is likely hindering his ability to get more offers is that his grades could be better.

    I love this guy. EB is recruiting so I'm kind of already penciling him in on our commitment list.

    "I like Colorado a lot, especially because of all the love they have shown," he said. "I love how their coaches are so outgoing. Every time I talk to the coaches at Colorado, they end up passing the phone around and I talk to four different coaches. They have shown a lot of support."

    Sounds like he'll be in town in early December. Hopefully we lock him up then. I don't want to see his grades improve and someone swoop in and snatch in January.

    Rivals confirms that Solomon will visit CU in January (no other visits scheduled yet).

    I like the speed and size combo. Can he go either way between S and CB? Either way, looks like a solid player.

    Can play either. I like him better as a safety.

    Although he is listed as a Safety in all databases. Colorado wants him as a CB!

    Well, CU and Greg Brown have had a little bit of success developing CBs.
