2024 Recruit Profile Index & Recruiting News

He would be a monster blocking TE, but dropping from a .90 to .84 while playing at a small school tells me something did not work out. Could be like Ward. Perhaps a PWO candidate? Or just a WO candidate.
Didn’t he improve from 84 to 90, not the other way

No, the 90 was 4* out of HS when he signed with Clemson. He was an 86 when he transferred from Clemson to Alabama State, now down to 84. He is only rated On.3 as the 986 rated portal player (barely in the top 1/2). I don't think he is a top-50 TP at TE in the TP. I looked through the TP rankings on a few services, it looks like for most TP-transferees somewhere between 500-600 is the cut-off for P65 including some quality teams. Once below that number, there are a few exceptions (mostly not great P65 programs) but down this low it is mainly G5, DIv II schools, or they are general attrition. Sort of like Caden Ludwick who transferred to ORE as a w/o TE.

Lay's measurables (6'6" 273) are good for a blocking TE or any place on the line--however I don't think he improved. I think PWO or general W/O is about it.

247 has CU as the #1 rated recruiting class in the Big 12 for the class of 2024 and also the highest average rating per recruit.

11/26 blue chips (42%) with no one rated below 86, so all of the 3* are above the mean for that grade.

When you take a look at the Conference Rankings, how does the B1G think it is the big boy besides Michigan's championship and Ohio State's cred?
Oregon is actually a big add for them despite all our hate

SEC has 24 x 5 Stars (The top 12 teams all have one or more)
B1G has 6 x 5 Stars (5 on one team at Ohio State, and the other is Raiola, and even Michigan does not have one)
ACC has 4 x 5 Stars on two teams (Miami and Clemson)
Big 12 has 2 x 5 Stars (Seaton and Texas Tech's guy)
Notre Dame has 1

AT COLORADO: 2011 (Sr.)He blossomed as a senior, playing in 12 games which included eight starts, as he took over the starting spot at right defensive end for the last eight games of the season. He was in for 428 snaps for the season (after playing just 17 total previously), and would finish second on the team with the most tackles by a defensive end or jack outside linebacker with 29 (22 solo, five for losses including two quarterback sacks). He also had five pressures, a forced fumble and a recovery. The final game of his career may have been his best: in recording a career-high six tackles (three solo), he played a big role in CU’s 17-14 win at Utah with a late quarterback sack and forced fumble that CU recovered. He also had five tackles (all unassisted) at UCLA and at Washington (three solo, when he also recovered a fumble). His other sack, the first of his career, was against Colorado State at Mile High in Denver. He moved to defensive end from outside linebacker for spring drills, but would return to end after the season began. He had nine tackles, five solo and three for losses, along with two quarterback hurries in the three main spring scrimmages. He was placed on scholarship by the coaching staff following spring practice.
2010 (Jr.)He played in all 12 games on special teams (kickoff return unit), and got into three on defense at outside linebacker. He had two solo tackles and a quarterback pressure in 11 snaps from scrimmage. He tied for ninth in special team points with 10, all coming on knockdown blocks that aided the return. He was the Scout Team Special Teams Player of the Week as selected by the coaches for the Colorado State game, and was also named recipient of the Defensive Scout Award for the entire season. He won the John Wooten Award for spring practice, which was presented by the coaches for outstanding work ethic. He had five tackles, including two quarterback sacks, in the three main spring scrimmages.
2009 (Soph.)He saw action in three games, including two on defense (Toledo, Wyoming) where he got in for six plays (did not record any stats); he played two snaps at Toledo and four versus Wyoming. He earned the Defensive Scout Team Award for the season, and was selected as the Scout Team Defensive Player of the Week for the Wyoming game. He moved from inside linebacker to defensive end for spring drills.
2008 (Fr.-RS)He did not see any action but dressed for seven games, practicing most of the semester at “mike” inside linebacker position. He was the scout team defense player of the week award winner for the Iowa State game. He had two assisted tackles in the three main spring scrimmages.
2007 (Fr.)Redshirted; did not see any action. Though he transferred to Colorado from Penn State and joined the team the first day of classes, his “NCAA clock” never started at Penn State as school was not yet underway when he decided to transfer closer to home after suffering several knee injuries.
AT PENN STATE (2006, Fr.)He was an invited walk-on, but after three knee surgeries and not participating in any football activities, he left school after just 11 days, before classes started, and thus before his NCAA “academic clock” started.
HIGH SCHOOLHe earned first-team All-State (3A) and All-Western Slope Conference honors at linebacker as a senior, when he racked up 120 tackles, with 10 for losses, including four quarterback sacks. He forced five fumbles and recovered two. As a junior, when he was an All-Conference performer, he recorded 100 tackles, with 14 for losses and eight sacks, while forcing four fumbles. Aspen was 2-6 his senior year and 1-6 his junior season under coach Travis Benson. He also lettered four times in hockey (forward), twice earning All-Conference honors.
ACADEMICSHe is majoring in History at Colorado and is on schedule to graduate in May 2012.
PERSONALHe was born July 12, 1988 in Miami, Fla. Hobbies include music and most sports. Father (Michael) and an uncle (Steve) both played football at Minnesota. Another uncle (Bill) played football at Georgia and in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons, and also was a WWE star (professional wrestling). Grandfather (Jed Goldberg) played football at Harvard. Along with high school and current CU teammate David Clark, the two are the first to play Division I football from Aspen High School.​
