    A bit early for a profile, but h/t to @JMBuffs for pointing him out as an impressive in-state sophomore. Stats were pretty "wow" for a guy who played NT. You don't usually see this many tackles from the position.

    McChesney follows, so maybe he's going to be part of the Dungeon Family. That would be a big plus.

    Kid loves d-line. I hear that he is freaky athletic for his size.

    Strange that he doesn't have any offers. I know he's young, but an athletic 6'3" 292 sophomore, playing for a visible, 5A program seems like a no-brainer.

    Good point since schools seem to be offering earlier these days as well.

    Also thinking this kid is this big and athletic as a sophomore, what is he going to be like as a senior if he spends a couple years with McChesney?

    Especially with that 4.1 GPA. No academic reason to not get an early offer. You'd think we'd at least be seeing FCS & G5 at this point.

    I just hope he fits the CU defensive system.

    Was just about to post this. Love the quotes from him. Sounds like CU is in good position here. Stanford is the school that would worry me if an offer materializes. I can't see him choosing CSU with offers from Oregon and CU on the table heading into his junior year.

    My nephew plays with Aiden and Brother N Law is involved with the Mullen program. New head coach played with Elway in the 80's at Stanford. If Stanford offers he is a "Tree." I can't fault him either. I hope they don't offer but I am not holding my breath. He would be awesome to have. Seems like a really great kid.

    Sucks to hear but there is plenty of time to make a better impression on him.

    I thought "Oh Furd" as soon as I saw the 4.10 GPA.

    A lot can happen, and always seems to, between now and December 2019. No reason to worry, this entire Forum is excrutiatingly pregnant with anticipation. . . 2020 is sci-fi futuristic
