Tight end Josh Falo is one of the nation's top prospects at his position, currently rated the No. 246 overall recruit in the nation.
Falo put on a show at The Opening Finals over the summer and has the kind of size, speed and athleticism combination that could help him see the field early in college.
Falo took an unofficial visit to Oregon earlier in the year and checked out the Colorado Buffaloes this past weekend for his first official visit of the year.
"It was great, I loved it there," Falo said. "My favorite part was the game day atmosphere and being there in that amazing stadium. The view was incredible, but the whole campus and city of Boulder is beautiful. The whole team is like a big brotherhood and it all starts from the coaches and works it way down to the players.
"The head coach, Coach MacIntyre, sets the tone and the players follow suit right behind him. I really love the closeness within the program, not just among the players but how the coaches and players get along with each other and they all treated me great. Like I said, it was like a big family there and I fit in really well."
Falo was hosted by his older brother N.J. Falo and is already familiar with Coach MacIntyre through another family connection.
"My older brother Nate played for him at San Jose State and really liked him a lot," Falo said. "So my family is already comfortable with him and likes him a lot. Nate had nothing but good things to say about Coach MacIntyre and my mom likes him a lot as well.
"We had a nice sit down meeting with him on Sunday. He talked about the school, the football program and how I would fit in there. He's an awesome guy and a great coach. I also really like Coach Chev (Chiaverini) and spent a lot of time with him.
"When I was watching the game, I noticed they don't really have a tight end like me. Coach Chev broke down film of how he used the TE when he was at Texas Tech and how many plays they make and that was pretty exciting. He's a great OC and I think the offense would be a really good fit for me."
The Buffs obviously set the bar very high but Falo said he still plans to take the rest of his trips.
"Colorado is a great place for sure and I did have some feelings about committing but it's a little too early right now," Falo said. "I still have other trips I want to take before I commit. I have a date with Oregon set up for November but I'm not sure if I'll still take it because I already took the unofficial last month.
"I want to check out Michigan, Ohio State, Alabama and USC but I don't have any dates with anyone right now. I would like to try and take as many as I can during the season, maybe 2-3 more and then take the others in December. I'm playing in the Under Armour AA Game in January but I would like to make my decision before then if I can. These are all great options for me so I just want to take my visits and find the best all around fit for me."
