Commit Tracker: Polley adds UCLA offer, but Colorado still his “dream school”

Manning the left tackle spot, Colorado commit Grant Polley has helped Denton average 36 points per game en route to a 3-0 start this season. This week's Commit Tracker feature...

Polley and his Denton teammates will be tested the next two weeks with road games at Timber and Ryan, two other teams that have gotten out to an undefeated start.

"There is always stuff we need to improve on but I love the way we're coming along as a team," Polley said. "It is always a good thing whenever you can come back every week and get better. We can play a lot better. Our ceiling is a lot higher than it was last year.

"I really just want to play at maximum capacity, get all we can out of this team. This is the last time I'll ever be together with these guys and I want to make the best of it."

Polley said every phase of his game has improved since the end of his junior campaign, and he feels his pass blocking has improved substantially.

"I am also a lot better at keeping my composure," he said. "It wasn't an aggression thing, it was more of a keeping my technique in crucial situations thing."

Polley committed to the Buffaloes on July 11 over 24 other FBS programs, but that has not kept other schools from continuing to pursue him. UCLA extended an offer to Polley earlier this month, and TCU and Cal have been keeping in touch.

"It is really up-in-the-air right now," Polley said when asked if he plans to visit some other colleges. "I still have to decide what is best. I may take two or three [official visits]. It really just depends how things go here in the next couple weeks. Right now Colorado is my dream school, though.

"Colorado has everything that I need. It has a great coaching staff, a great 2017 class, a great history, a crazy fan base, and it is up-and-coming. And the location, you have a top city right there in Denver, you have beautiful mountains right there, and great weather, too. Personally I just don't like to leave any stones unturned. It would take something to go wrong for me not to end up at Colorado."

Below are two clips of Polley from Denton's most recent win over The Colony:
