    I was looking at Brandon Huffman's twitter feed this morning and noticed that a long snapper out of California, Cole Mazza, has three early PAC-12 offers. Currently on the roster, Ryan Iverson is a junior and then we have PWO Keegan LaMar from the 2011 class. Is LS a potential need in this class?

    I think we got a walk-on commitment from a long snapper a couple weeks ago. From Monarch, I think.

    I prefer inviting walk ons to be long snappers. I'd invite one every year. That way we have depth and the winner of the competition gets the scholarship.

    I like this idea. It would be rough if we gave one of our few scholarships to a LS only to have him beaten out by a PWO.

    Well, the Buffs did it a few years ago and the guy (name escapes me) was a 4 year starter. If the circumstances are right, then do it. (by "right" I mean the kid is capable of holding a starting position for 3-4 years, AND you have ample 'ships to give that year).

    Buffs add preferred walk-on to 2012 roster
    Chris O’Donnell (1988-91), Greg Pace (2002-05), Justin Drescher (2006-09) … names etched in the Colorado record books.
    Names don’t ring a bell?
    These three players are the only three players in CU history to hold down the thankless job of long snapper for all four years of their CU career.
    Now Trevor Carver has signed on to the Buff roster to try and join that list.
    According to the Daily Camera… Trevor Carver, from Monarch (Co.) high, will play long-snapper as a preferred walk-on this fall.
    The 6-foot, 180-pound Carver, whose father Scott played tight end at Michigan State, had been sitting on a similar offer from the Utah Utes for about a month before getting word from CU coaches that they would have a spot for him.
    “I just felt a little more comfortable (at Colorado),” Trevor Carver said Friday. “I’m very excited.”
    Carver said he had opportunities to play cornerback at a couple of Division-III schools in California, but had long ago set his heart on playing Division-I football. And long-snapping, which he learned from his father in pee-wee football, ended up being his ticket.
    For Carver to join O’Donnell, Pace, and Drescher in the record books, he’ll have some work to do. The returning starter at long-snapper for CU is junior Ryan Iverson, who has already started for two seasons, and is halfway to joining an elite – if underappreciated – list of four-year starters at Colorado.
