    Adam had a little bit on Rakeshaw. https://colorado.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1766065

    "We are getting the plans to head up to Colorado maybe sometime in July because June is pretty full for me right now," he said.

    Rakeshaw hauled in 51 passes as a junior and he is also a full-time starter at cornerback. He has more experience playing receiver but is open to playing on either side of the ball in college.

    ****************

    Charles Clark recruit. Relationship with his HS coach.

    Crazy athlete. Long jumped 23'9" already in high school. At CU, that would be Top 15 all-time for outdoor T&F.

    No offense to the kid, on the contrary I think of it as kind of a compliment but with a name like Derrion Rakestraw he sounds like a Game of Thrones character. He should be fighting Wildlings instead of scoring touchdowns.

    If he signs, someone's gonna need to do up a Rakestraw "Winter is Coming" player card meme. :smile2:

    It's kind of a genius idea to come up with homemade playing cards for our players. I'd imagine they would have to be funded by donation and given away rather than sold, but recruits would love that.

    Welcome!

    :dance5:

    Looks like Seqouyah HS is a 4A school with really strong academics in a semi-rural area north of Atlanta.

    Great to see our future QB actively engaging other recruits.

    I am still awaiting the A-Hole fan that is going to piss and moan about Rakestraw only being a 2-star. Solid tape. Look forward to seeing how his Senior year goes.

    Coaches are doing a good job on the UVs so far.

    Those are becoming the key to recruiting now.

    I think the facilities are getting CU back to what we used to always preach: just get a prospect on campus and you'll get the commitment.

    Looks like a terrific athlete. Probably a redshirt to gain some weight.

    We may have to work harder to keep him than we did to get him. Glad he seems to already be building relationships as a Buff.
