    Physically he could play NT.

    NTs though tend to get tied up a lot in the wash. Playing him at SDE will give him a chance to work more against a single blocker or at least with more space. This should let him be a guy who makes more plays, create negative plays for the offense.

    I don't want to fathom where we'd be without this signing. Granted, we need 5 more like him, but getting this guy was enormous.

    There's a lot to be happy about here. The Buffs landed him over a local school, as well as other programs. He already has D1 size and looks like beast in his vids. Love the story, too.

    We may want to tap the brakes, tho. He dominated in hs, but at one of the lower classifications and not against big-school competition.

    It may take him a while to catch up to the speed of the game at the next level, as well as the size and strength of the competition.

    Just a precautionary note so we don't collectively hit the panic button if he's not playing early or (gasp) takes a redshirt year.

    Part of the reason he signed with CU is they promised he would play on the strong side. I really don't think it matters as they will probably move him all over, or at least should.

    Seemed very close to Eliot and Katie, so not a big surprise I guess. Would not be a surprise to see him end up at Kansas. Explains a bit more why they are looking at so many DL.

    This sucks.

    I don't have hard feelings and wish him well, though. He committed for the support system and people. They all left or were fired. That's a tough situation for him because he has some special needs. I hope that he gets what he needs wherever he lands.

    He was one of the players I was expecting a big jump from, bummer. Hope it works out for him.

    The best lineman Mac recruits takes off after one season. Typical.

    This is 100 percent connected to the loss of Katie.

    She might be a bigger loss than any of the coaches.

    No reason to have a problem with this for the reason that Nik stated
    Sometimes it makes sense to do what is best for the kid. No reason not to wish him well.

    I'm not sure that's saying much.
