    Max led Pomona to a state title as a sophomore. He was the only soph on the Denver Post's All-Colorado team.

    Great athlete who plays both ways and even kicks.

    In track, he posted a 10.80 in the 100m in the spring of his sophomore year. LINK

    Was one of the invites and attendees to CU's Junior Day last academic year.


    This is one of the guys that CU needs to offer and get from the 2018 in-state class, imho.

    Really good player. Might be the best RB in the state this year.

    He's pretty damn good in the secondary too.

    What is his real height? 5'10 and under is better at RB than DB.

    Yeah. I'd assume if he doesn't gain any height he'll either be a RB or a slot WR. He did catch 38 balls last year.

    Great kid with a huge heart. His dad told me that the 40 time was laser timed.

    I'm amending this statement. He is the best offensive player in the state. I got to see him play last night and while I dont think he has quite the overall athleticism that Christian McCaffrey had in high school (its very close, though), he is faster and is every bit the football player CMac was.

    If Borgi was 2-3 inches taller, he would have some big time offers right now. He is one that I am vaulting to the top of the 2018 board for our in-state class. Big time playmaker.

    Some highlights from last night. The first 2 minutes are the appetizer for the play starting at 2:06...

    Love the vision and quickness. Definitely a playmaker.

    So we're recruiting him as a kickoff specialist?

    Since we no longer have a punter who can kick with both feet, it'd be great to have a guy who can return his own kickoffs. Must have.

    He looks good enough to me, are we recruiting him pretty solid?

    Spoke with Max, he said CU wants to see him more in person before deciding on an offer. Same with Utah. Borghi loves him some CU.

    “I had a good time up there. I talked to all the coaches, beautiful facilities, I liked it a lot down there. I really get a great vibe. CU is killing it right now, The Rise is crazy."

    Really want him to be a Buff. Coaches will never regret having this kid on scholarship.

    I don't think he's a RB at the next level, but he would make a damn good slot receiver. I'm with you nik... I would love to see him in Boulder. I honestly can't believe he doesn't hold an offer from anyone yet.

    You'd think Wyoming & New Mexico would be living at his high school.

    And CSU... They can't afford to let another CO Gatorade POY (he hasn't won this award yet, but is definitely the odds on favorite this year or next, IMO) get taken by Wyoming.

    Wingard only had 17 tackles and a sack against the Lambs.

    Looks tenacious - and he flashed against Valor, so that says something

    You need guys like this on your team. Not a team full of them, but at least 5-10 guys like this who are just absolute effort freaks.

    6-4 tall effort freaks would be nice too.
