One place that the new Colorado coaching staff is familiar with is the state of California.
Buffs Head Football Coach Mike MacIntyre and a lot of his coaching staff spent two years at San Jose State, where they built solid relationships with Cal High School coaches.
It's no surprise that the Buffs are making California one of its top recruiting hotbeds.
One California athlete that appears on Colorado's radar is San Mateo's defensive end Matt Dickerson.
The Junipero Serra HS player posed over 50 tackles and four sacks his junior season.
BuffPlayBook.com caught up with Dickerson to get an update on his recruitment and his thoughts of the Buffaloes.
Dickerson made a trip to Boulder earlier this spring and came away from the Colorado campus very impressed.
"I really liked it a lot," Dickerson said. "I love the coaching staff, I love the campus."
Coach Klayton Adams is recruiting Dickerson and is apparently building a solid relationship with the talented defensive end.
"Coach Adams is great," Dickerson said. "We have definitely connected. We have built a solid relationship."
Dickerson was also impressed with the Buffs new Head Coach.
"Coach Mac is great," Dickerson said. "I got a chance to sit down with him one on one, he is really easy to talk to, you can tell he is a great coach. He told me how much they wanted me to be a Buff."
According to Dickerson he currently doesn't have a favorite.
"Not right now," Dickerson said. "Im pretty much wide open in my recruitment."
Colorado will be having a summer camp at several high schools in California, Dickerson plans on attending one on June 17th.
"It will be great to get coached by Coach Jeffcoat," Dickerson said. "To see how he coaches."
There was a couple of things that stood out to Dickerson about the Colorado campus.
"It's a beautiful campus with a lot of beautiful girls," Dickerson laughed. "They have a great academic reputation, that's very important to me."
