Air Force recently offered, the day after the Falcons stopped by Regis Jesuit for a spring evaluation period visit, and Jake Heimlicher received his offer from Colorado during a 45-minute meeting with head coach Mike MacIntyre.
"I toured CU's campus during their Junior Day and then the following Saturday they called me up and asked if I could come back up," he recapped. "So I drove up and met with Coach MacIntyre and I ate lunch with the other coaches after that. We talked about their defensive scheme, where he sees me as a player, where he sees me as a student.
"CU is pretty sweet, I am not going to lie. Everything they offer is impressive, academics and football wise. With 'The Rise,' how their football team is back on the map is pretty cool."
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Heimlicher is being recruited by the Buffaloes as a pass rushing outside linebacker in their 3-4 scheme.
Heimlicher continues to be in contact with Cal's coaches on a weekly basis and he is hearing from Duke.
"It is still up in the air at this point," he said when asked about early recruiting favorites. "After I visit Stanford on May 20th for their Junior Day and see what they think of me, that is probably when I will start to get a plan together with recruiting."
Heimlicher plans to attend The Opening regional event in Oakland next month, the day after visiting Stanford.
A League Defensive Player of the Year and first-team all-state selection in 2016, Heimlicher racked up 22 sacks, 49 hurries and 115 tackles during his junior campaign.
