Real name isn't Nik
I've mentioned this before, but CU had 2 recruiting spots for safeties that recruiting class. One for a JUCO who could backfill and one for a freshman to develop. CU signed Laguda and Fisher. I think this worked out well for all parties.Good for him.
Gentry and now Wingard. Two in-state kids who would have preferred to wear the Black and Gold, but ended up in mustard and brown, and weren't seriously pursued. There are plenty of other similar examples. I recall MacIntyre's big show of having staff visit most Colorado high schools, but did they come to the same wrong conclusion that so many ABers have?
It's an in exact science, sure. All things equal, Colorado kids on the field help fill the seats and create interest that matters. The fact that some here don't give two ****s where a kid is from doesn't change that.
