    Probably like him at ILB at that height would be my guess. And no way in hell the 4.9 forty is accurate with that offer list. Those are speed teams that are in on him.

    “Right now, I have set up Louisville, UCF, Colorado and Florida,” Mitchell said. “January 15 to Louisville, January 22 I’m going to go to UCF, and I think the last one is for Florida. If I can fit Colorado in one of the dates, that’s going to be one of the visits.”

    Video from 1/21. Names the Top 3 at about 40 seconds.

    Charismatic guy on camera.

    Is he a backup for if pookie doesn't qualify?

    Really like his game I would take him right now if he would commit.

    I agree. I wouldn't slow play him. Good prospect. Lots of strong offers despite not really having a position on this level if the defense isn't running a 3-4. But since the Buffs are...

    This is why taking all the early commits is a problem.

    He is a guy who you take even if somebody else commits. Winning programs find room for guys like this. If he is good enough for Florida then he should be good enough for CU.

    Exactly, if you need to fill some positions at the end, THEN see what 2 star projects/sleepers are there

    Watched him earlier this season during the Dematha game on ESPN. He is a must get guy.

    He plays like that dude from OU. What's his name, Striker? Anyway, point is, that guy is all over the place. They don't just use him one way, he moves around.

    Disappointing but can understand somebody wanting to stay close to home. He looks like a guy who should be playing at the P5 level, think he is going to flat dominate against the teams UCF plays.

    Now we have to make him wish he had decided to come here.

    Significant though that our coaches are doing the work to get in on kids like this
