The University of Colorado football staff has seen some drastic changes in the past months and many potential players for the Buffs have taken notice.
Tre Hartley out of Milpitas High School in Milpitas, California is among the players who have seen the shift in the landscape of the Buffs.
The speedy wide receiver and cornerback has received an offer from the Buffs, which excites him.
"I'm very interested in CU. There's been a lot of changes going on with them. They look to be on the uprise, which is very exciting when looking at where I want to play," Hartley says.
When asked about his relationships with the CU coaching staff, Hartly had only positive reviews.
"I've mostly been talking to coach Klayton Adams. He's been a great guy to me so far. I feel like he really has my best interests in mind," says Hartley. In regards to new head coach Mike MacIntyre, Hartly sounded pretty excited for what he is going to do with the program. "He (coach MacIntyre) is a great coach. I actually knew him when he was at San Jose State and now that he's the head coach at Colorado makes it pretty exciting".
At 6-0 and 181 lbs and running a 4.58 40-yard dash, Hartley is excited about his process so far. While he has not had an opportunity to attend many school camps this summer, he is hopeful that his season work will be enough. As an all-league wide receiver and an all-state cornerback because of his interception skills last year, Hartley has proven his skill set is one that no coach should overlook.
Hartley feels that he can greatly contribute to a team on both sides of the ball. "I feel that the best thing I bring to a team is my ability to get things done. If someone needs something, I will be the guy to do it," he says.
However, Hartley says that getting a good education is the most important thing he is looking for while examining these colleges.
"Education is number one for me. I love football, but it can only take you so far. I'm trying to think long term," he says. Colorado is a great place for education and has a bright football future.
Hartley and the Milpitas Trojans open their season September 13th at home against Woodside.
