    I had a good feeling about our chances to land this TE. Then I read through this thread and come across this post:

    How do I feel about our chances now? Stillwell.

    Believe Medford was referring to 2020 when Fauria and/or Taylor would be on campus.

    Two prep TEs is a necessity in this class.

    This year we've got 3 senior TEs plus Russell and Poplawski as sophomores.

    Wouldn't be the worst thing for the future depth chart if Stillwell came in now, redshirted to bulk up in 2019, and then for 2020 we had Russell + Poplawski in the junior class, a jacked Stillwell in the sophomore class, and 2 well-regarded freshmen coming in. That would fix the position going forward and set us up to simply recruit 1 or 2 TEs from the prep ranks every year going forward.

    What a quick bounce back from the 2019 scramble that would be. This year has us at the TE position going with a converted RB, a grad transfer and a JUCO who didn't really play his 1st year on campus representing our senior class and with our sophomores being a former walk-on and a guy who has been injured both of his seasons here so hasn't really played. Never again.

    It’s great to see how fast this staff can flip the bad situations left by the last staff.

    Although I’m waiting for that to be done to the DL. That’s the thing I’m not seeing the results at yet. Hope it happens soon.

    Happy to be wrong here if Stillwell commits today.

    Much needed after missing on Devera in the last class. Gives some good flexibility for 2019.

    For those not following Duff and his ESP talents, Adam apparently gave Stillwell the CU crystal ball right before that.....

    That is same as "commitment"!

    If true, I think it’s a great pick up. May contribute in 19 but also has RS available if we don’t need him.

    Nice! So he can come and play right away in August? That will help immensely with depth.

    Woo. "CU in August". Does that mean he's eligible to play this season?

    It appears he won’t be playing this year with a blue shirt.

    Feels good to see CU beating TCU for recruits again.

    Awesome! For a HS QB, his video shows some pretty good blocking to go with his athleticism.

    I like that the first two clips (and about half of the rest) are him blocking. He’s raw and spending a year learning to play the position is going to be huge. He obviously has the physical skill set to be a dude. Excited to have him.

    Blue shirt is basically a preferred walk on? If he doesn’t get to play this year I hope he doesn’t affect our ability to get Kole Taylor.

    I think they had a great graphic to show that and more in Brazil... So worth the extra money! :peek:

    No. Scholarship guy who sits a season, like a redshirt in effect.
