Final six

Signing day is next week and Colorado football coaches have a good idea what their 2011 class will look like, but there are still a few spots up for grabs with six players in town this weekend to check out the program. Get inside for more.

Coach Jon Embree and his staff are hosting recruits for a third consecutive weekend beginning with a reception on the club level of Folsom Field tonight.

One of the six players on campus is already committed to the Buffs. Place-kicker Will Oliver from Harvard-Westlake School in North Hollywood, Calif., will compete for the starting job as a true freshman next fall.

Another prospect on campus is a teammate of CU quarterback commit Stevie Dorman in Somerset, Texas. Will Harlos is a three-star linebacker who is committed to Wake Forest but opted to check out the Buffs late in the process after his teammate encouraged him to give Boulder some consideration.

USC commit Marcus Martin was schedule to be on campus. It would be a coup to convince him to switch allegiance at the last moment. Football program sources say it's extremely unlikely. Martin's visit is likely more about building relationships for the future. Martin's father is an influential person at Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles.

Cornerback prospect Kyle Washington is visiting from Florence High School in Florence, Ariz. He might be the most likely of the visitors to commit to the program this weekend.

Colorado also is hosting Stephan Nembot, a defensive line prospect who recently switched his commitment from Washington State to Washington. Colorado coaches hope he might consider one more change before signing day.

Brandon Andrews, another player capable of playing either cornerback or wide receiver rounds out the group. Andrews holds and offer from South Dakota State and has received late interest from Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico State. and recruiting experts will try to connect with each prospect in the coming days to get their impressions of Colorado and their plans for signing day and beyond.
