    Tumpkin recruiting for CU. I didn't see an offer tweet from Tucker that I could post here. However, I did find the Tom Lemming tweet about him (a 39" vertical is big time):

    with a 39" vertical that dude would be a huge weapon in the secondary.

    He is what the hybrid position should look like.

    Seems like he'd be a heat seeking missile that we'd be able to line up a lot of different ways.

    He'll either play OLB or S. I guess that means possibly at NB, too. Considering that Tumpkin is pretty much solo on this (no position coach with him), I went ahead and assumed that CU is looking at him as a S/NB rather than as an OLB as the position he'd come in at.

    Playing LB in high school is maybe why he doesn't have 30 offers.

    Congrats and good luck to him. Is it crazy to wonder if his CU offer wasn't "commitable" while we waited to hear from others?

    Possible. But Pitt has been heavily recruiting Florida since it hired Dave Wanstedt. They have lots of relationships down there and a headstart on CU with the recruiting network. Not a huge upset for them to win a recruiting battle for a Florida kid.
