Phipps Has Buffs in Top Two
He has current offers from the Buffs, Aztecs, BYU, Wyoming, Colorado State, and Hawaii.
Since Monday night he says about eight schools have called him. On the first night Colorado's Brian Cabral called but Phipps was out. Tonight(Wednesday) he spoke with coaches from Arizona and Wyoming. He has not scheduled any visits yet.
"Most of the coaches have told me that they want me to wait until after the season to visit. That is mainly because my team has no bye weeks this year and all of our games are on Friday nights. So it would be pretty tough to get to a campus by Saturday morning. I need to talk to Coach Cabral though because I am definitely setting a visit there."
Ryan says that Colorado State has been one of the schools to call him since Monday and he had a chance to view the Rocky Mountain showdown.
"I watched some of the game and then left to my scrimmage and I came back like three hours later and it was still on. That game was a classic."
A guy like Phipps could have been exactly what CU needed on that night where it seemed that some CSU players were as slippery as the field to CU defenders. Ryan recorded 172 tackles last year.
He gets his season started next week against Rialto Eisenhower.
