Tyler Lytle is hopeful there will be more than a good food on tap.
“I'm hoping to see some new commits,” the Anaheim (Calif.) Servite gunslinger said.
Uncommitted linebacker recruit Malik Horton, and top offensive line targets Grant Polley, Casey Roddick and Alan Ali are also expected to be in Boulder on the 24th. Polley and Roddick have already visited Colorado, while Horton and Ali will be checking out what the Buffaloes have to offer for the first time.
“I am looking forward to meeting the other commits. We all talk and I'm excited to meet this talented, great group of guys,” Lewis said. “I am also excited to see all the coaches again and be back on campus in that beautiful family environment.”
Said Jackson: “I'm hoping to keep building a great relationship with the coaches. Coach 'Chev' (co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach Darrin Chiaverini) is always great and [head] coach [Mike] Mac[Intyre], too. I'm also looking forward to hanging out with some of the commits. We have been talking to each other. I want to see the training room and meet with the nutritionist, too. Staying healthy is very important. I just want to have a great time so I'm looking forward to it.”
Added Paige: “I am looking forward to meeting my future teammates and coaches and starting to build a relationship with them.”
Jalin Burrell, Dante Sparaco and Sebastian Olver are three Colorado commits that won't be able to make it to the BBQ. Burrell has a final exam at Moorpark College on the 27th so he wants to dedicate his time that weekend to his studies, while Sparaco has to report to the IMG Academy in Florida this coming Monday. Olver has already taken two unofficial visits to Colorado in recent months and he is now focused on getting ready for his senior season at Marin Catholic.
Colorado receiver pledges Maurice Bell and Laviska Shenault Jr. are both still in the process of determining whether they will be able to attend the BBQ. Stay tuned to BuffStampede.com for later updates on the event.
