Legacy Stanley Lands CU Offer

Saturday was a special day for the Stanley family. Cherry Creek 2018 three-star Dimitri Stanley received an offer to Colorado, where his father Walter starred...

Walter was in Mike MacIntyre’s office with Dimitri Stanley when the head Buffalo offered the Cherry Creek cornerback slash wide receiver. “He was pumped up,” Stanley said of Walter, the former Buffs burner.

“It felt good, it was a real good pick-up. It was your typical junior day. We had lunch to kind of kick things off. We toured around CU, got to see the facilities and all that cool stuff.”

Stanley and Pomona speedster Max Borghi were the two 2018 prospects to land CU offers during the Buffs’ recruiting event. Stanley walked BuffStampede.com through the weekend’s festivities.

“We were going through a film session with out individual position coaches and after that coach MacIntyre sent a coach down to get me,” Stanley continued.

“He took me up to coach Mac’s office, Max Borghi was actually in front of me. He went in to talk to coach first then it was my turn. We had a good conversation and he ended up offering me. It was a good time.”


MacIntyre told Stanley the Buffs are open to whatever position he’d like to focus on in college. CU’s coach worked his magic on the in-state recruits.

“He was just saying they’d love to have me up at the school, my dad played there and all of this stuff. It was more talking about the offer. They think I could play four positions on the field … slot or outside,” Stanley said.

“We talked about what position I want to play in college, either cornerback or wide receiver. He said to let him know which position I want to play or if I want to try out new things because they’re open to it. He said some pretty cool stuff.”

Stanley believes he can go both ways in college, if needed. He’s had a few Power-5 offers roll in lately, from Louisville and Iowa State, with more and more schools showing interest. Commitment timetable wise, the three-star might wait a little while to send out a verbal.

“I don’t think I’m going to play it out all the way through senior season, but I’m definitely going to let this play out a little bit, see what options and have time for my decision. Hopefully make a decision going into or before my senior season,” Stanley said.

“They’re definitely up there at the top,” he continued on where CU sits on his list of colleges.

The Buffs hope Stanley will return this spring to check out practices and “see what goes down.” The Creek two-way standout also plans to camp at CU this summer, likely competing at corner and receiver. One future Buffalo and a potential future Buffalo were excited their teammate scored a big in-state offer.

“Jon [Van Diest] was a little pumped up. Michael Lynn was pumped up, too,” Stanley said on congratulations out of the Creek camp.
