TE Has 20-30 Offers, Looking Hard at CU

Colorado loves using the tight end in its offense. Just ask NFL players <b>Daniel Graham</b> and <b>Christian Fauria</b>. Top Texas player <a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=708192">Gabriel Ratcliff</a> is also looking for an offense that utilizes the tight end position and that has him very interested in the Buffs.

"I do like Colorado. I saw their game versus Baylor and even though it wasn't a good game for them I like the way they move their offense around. Coach Watson has been recruiting me for them and he actually called a few days ago."

Gabe has an offer from the Buffs along with his other top schools which right now are A&M, Arizona, Wisconsin, Arkansas, and Kansas. Along with the offers from these schools he says he has around "20-30" total. Texas is still the team to beat for Gabe. All of the others are even.

"Mack Brown told me that they want me to have a big year because they only recruit the best of the best. They are the only one of my top schools not to offer."

Gabe has not lined up any visits yet.

"My coach prefers for me to do that after the season."

Ratcliff says that his best attribute on the field is that he rises to the occasion when it's crunch time.

On the field this year he has 14 catches for 140 yards and a touchdown. He has taken a few snaps on defense as well and says he doesn't have a preference.

"I just want to be on the field."

Gabe carries a 3.2 GPA and scored an 860 on his firat SAT attempt, but will take it again this Saturday. He is undecided on a major.

Jersey Village takes on Cy Fair this Friday.
