    (Looks like the young man is up to 7 offers per 247, with Missouri and K State being other P5 conference teams who've offered.)

    Pretty sure Scott was from California, not Texas.

    Didn't recall where he transferred to St. Bonaventure from. Kind of interesting he transferred from CU to USF the year after Leavitt left it. He was a young man in need of good advice, it seems.

    Here's hoping we make some good impressions with the many recruits from DeSoto - they'd be a fun team to watch this year.

    Extended forecast showing partly cloudy, and in the 60's. Picture perfect weekend to show off Boulder.

    Xavier's highlights reel shows a pancake making machine who plays guard, tackle and center.

    Hope he's the next to commit to Boulder.

    Would be awesome if he is the new recruit and we snag him immediately after a TAMU visit. :)

    Picked up Texas and North Carolina offers today. What an OL DeSoto has with him, White, and Ingram.

    Hopefully he committed to Charlie Strong, not Texas.

    No. He really looked like the kind of player to bring us back into the top 25.

    Wouldn't suck at all if CU could flip this guy. From The Opening finals: http://www.scout.com/college/football/recruiting/story/1684924-opening-saturday-surprises

    -DeSoto (Texas) offensive lineman Xavier Newman, a commit to Texas is probably the smallest offensive lineman of the group, but when matched up against one of the biggest and baddest defensive tackles - Marvin Wilson - he was able to win two reps in a row with the last rep coming in a shocking fashion and a strong finish taking the five-star to the ground. Newman slid around playing guard and center.

    Flipping Xavier Newman should be a real possibility. With the two 4 star OL transfers from Baylor, Texas has signed 12 OL in the last two classes. Playing time their could be scarce. He was close to committing to CU. Hopefully adding two OL players that will have a year head start for playing time is enough for him to rethink his decision. Come back to Colorado Xavier.

    IMO, it comes down to us and OU and we get him if we show progress this year on the field.

    I would love to have the chance to flip this guy, I just feel the probability on that occurring is extremely low. I thought this was his dream school, and he doesn't seem like the kind of kid who is going to shy away from competition. If Texas has 15 4* recruits on their roster, he is going to go and work his tail off to beat them.

    I would be excited if he became a Buff, but feel I have a better chance of winning Powerball.

    We have a much better shot that that. He was about to commit to us and his best friend is committed to the Buffs.

    Bump! Sounds like we're still recruiting him here along with the rest of the DeSoto crew.

    According to Howell's live chat, he'll be here this weekend:
