    [h=3]Stoppin’ by for a Visit – January 20th[/h]The final push is on by the CU coaching staff to fill the Class of 2012. Which players give their commitments, and ultimately their signatures on February 1st, over the next two weeks*will be crucial to the real – and perceived – success of the recruiting Class of 2012.
    I have it from a reliable source that the number of players coming to Boulder is expected to be 11, but that number might fall or rise during the week. *
    Weather forecast for the weekend:*Partly cloudy, highs in the 50′s. The weather should allow for the Flatirons and the beauty of Boulder to work their magic. The CU men’s basketball team host a perenniel NCAA tournament team in Arizona at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
    Here are the players*confirmed to be on the official list for this weekend (January 20th-21st):
    Seth Jacobs – OLBJust the facts … Jacobs is a linebacker*prospect from Arroyo Grande, California. Jacobs is considered to be a four-star prospect by both*Rivals and Scout. Jacobs is 6’2″, 215-pounds, and runs a 4.55 in the 40. Rivals has Jacobs as the No. 27*outside linebacker in the nation, with Scout also pegging him for the No. 27 slot. As a senior, Jacobs had 151 tackles in leading his team to a 13-1 record. Jacobs has other offers from … most of the Pac-12, including both Oregon schools, Washington, both Arizona schools, and UCLA. Jacobs also has offers from schools like Nebraska, Arkansas, and Oklahoma State. Before taking his official visit to Boulder, Jacobs took visits to Arizona, Arkansas, and Oklahoma State. In the final weekend of visits, Jacobs will visit UCLA. Jacobs has already indicated that he will wait until Signing Day to announce his choice. Oklahoma State and Arkansas are in the top three, with Colorado competing with UCLA to have the final hat on the table. Does CU have a chance? Perhaps. I have heard nothing but great things about their program. I have really enjoyed talking with Brian Cabral, who is their linebacker coach,”*Jacobs told Scout.com. “I am looking forward to my trip out there.”
    Ewing Simmons – DE – Just the facts … Simmons is a defensive lineman prospect from Stockton, California. Simmons is considered to be a three-star prospect by both Rivals and Scout. Simmons is 6’3″, 225-pounds, and is rated by Scout to be the 90th-best defensive end in the nation. Simmons earned first-team all-league and all-area honors after recording 65 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries during his senior campaign. He helped St. Mary’s to nine wins and a Tri-City League title. Simmons has other offers from … at least five Pac-12 schools, including both Arizona schools, UCLA, and Washington State. Simmons only other official visit to date, though, was scheduled for Fresno State, but was cancelled after head coach Pat Hill was fired. There is no listing for an official visit for the last weekend of visits, January 27th-28th, though at one point Simmons indicated he wanted to take all five official visits. Simmons appeared to be most impressed with Arizona, and new head coach Rich Rodriguez, although the Buff Nation cannot count out competing with Washington State for Ewing’s services.
    Isaiah Folasa – OL – a two-start UCLA commit – more info shortly
    Included with the players who will be taking their visits to Boulder this weekend are at least three players who have given their verbal commitments to Colorado:
    [h=2]SHANE DILLON – QB[/h]
    Just the facts … Committed May 12th … Dillon is a quarterback from El Cajon, California. Dillon is 6’5
