Two of Three Local Players Visit CU

In addition to official visitors, on just about every game weekend in Boulder you always get some unofficial local guests. Two players that visited for the Mizzu game were Littleton Arapahoe's <b>Andrew Brown</b> and <b>Mike Mullen</b>. Both are interested in CU as is their teammate <b>Tommie Hill</b>. Hill is already beginning to schedule visits as he has them upcoming with Nebraska, Oregon, and CSU. He is a top defensive end prospect in Colorado this year. All three update their recruitment.

Arapahoe is at no shortage for quality defenders this year as Andrew Brown, Mike Mullen, and Tommie Hill are all candidates to garner all-conference honors.

The 5-10, 180 pound Brown does it all for his squad. He plays linebacker, running back, and kick returner. He had a very good year. "I had one kickoff return for a touchdown and also eight touchdowns at running back,"Brown proclaimed.

Brown isn't really thinking about college yet but when he does he ought to be able to go anywhere he wants with his 3.4 GPA, and scores of 23 on his ACT and 1080 on his SAT. Andrew is getting a lot of divison two looks. He visited Boulder for Mizzu to accompany his teammate, Mullen.

Mike Mullen wanted to check out the game so he called up Coach Wristen to grab a couple of tickets.

"I got there a couple of hours early and they had an Ambassador take me on a tour. I watched the team go through warm-ups and stood on the sideline before the game. After the game they took us onto the field and then into the auditorium. Coach Barnett talked to the team in there. He was just praising the seniors for the fact that they never lost to Missouri. He also led them in a team prayer."

Mullen currently favors the Buffs.

"I have grown up a big fan. I have been watching them since I was little. My Grandfather played for them in the 50's, Fred Mullen."

Other schools on Mike's list include Oklahoma State, Northern Colorado, Colorado State, and North Dakota. ND is after him the hardest.

The 5-11, 185 pounder had 33 cathes for 490 yards and five touchdonws this year. He also had three picks on defense. All schools like him as a receiver. He has no offers yet.

Mike carries a 3.32 GPA and scored a 21 on his ACT. He is thinking of majoring in Business.

Tommie Hill is getting a lot of division one looks as he already has scholarship offers from Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado State. State is the current front-runner. Schools like Tommie as a d-end and a tight end.

Tommie was in attendance at the CU camp this summer where he dislocated his shoulder. Bad luck struck again in the third to last game of the fall for him when he pulled an achilles tendon.

Hill has already tripped to Wyoming and now he will visit Colorado State December 5th, Nebraska December 12th, and Oregon on January 12th. He will also take an unofficial trip to CU for the Nebraska game.

Arapahoe finished 7-3 on the year and 4-1 in league play but they did not have enough power points to get into the 5A state playoffs.
