    Not showing any offers, is there a chance that he is a PWO?

    Article in the newsroom indicates he's been offered as a grayshirt (count towards 2013). Good move, hope he accepts the offer.

    Makes some sense, grayshirt him, put some weight on him and also gives him a spring practice.

    Also lets us count him against next year but actually count him against this year if we lose somebody for some reason (academics, injury, etc.)

    Actually, I don't think it, I know it. It says so on Wiki.

    '13 CO DE Derek McCartney

    Hadn't seen anyone post this, but if so, go ahead and delete it...

    Grandson of Bill McCartney, son of Shannon Clavelle. Ringo's story says he's holding CU offer.

    Edit: Looks like he's a grayshirt candidate. Guessing he'd sign now and not enroll until 2013, so that's why I put the '13 header. Move thread if necessary, my bad!

    Yes. Kristy McCartney had two sons during her father's tenure as HC. TC is Sal's son and Derek is Shannon Clavelle's.

    Looks way undersized. But that can change with an extra year.

    Not sure what you mean by the "lol." All I know is that she raised two great young men.

    Colorado recently offered McCartney a grayshirt opportunity, meaning he would join the program on scholarship next spring, should he choose to accept.

    "I am taking my official visit to CU this weekend so I will probably know what I am going to do more after that," McCartney said. "I am not talking to many other colleges but I have considered walking on at Baylor, or Oregon possibly. I have narrowed it down to those three."


    Great read on Rivals. Obviously grew up a Buff.

    Rivals is now listing Derek as a Buff commitment!

    He'll use a grayshirt year put on some weight and join us in January of 2013.

    Cool! I think it's great to have legacies in the program who have strong roots with the Buffs.

    I bet he ends up as a grad assistant after his time at CU.
