CU Still Showing Interest in Free Safety

<a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=1225156">Marlon Yates</a> just returned home from the Reebok Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas where he averaged 12 points a game in his team's four contests. On the gridiron, schools may just be waiting for his test scores before showing more interest and CU definitely seems to be keeping themselves in the picture.

Height: 6-2
Weight: 170
40 time: 4.7
Squat: 420
From: Van Nuys, California
High School: Montclair Prep

"Colorado is sending me a lot of letters," said Yates. "I am still interested in them."

Where does CU like him?

"Everyone likes me at free safety, except UTEP."

UTEP sees Yates as a signal caller which he plays for Montclair Prep, in addition to receiver and safety.

Marlon currently carries a 2.5 core GPA and is awaiting his SAT score. Once he gets it there is no doubt his stock will rise as he is a very good athlete. He threw for 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior and added 200 yards and three touchdowns receiving.

His favorite school is still Washington. "My Mom would like me to go there since my brother is going to be a redshirt sophomore (Robert Lewis). I also like Washington State, USC, and UCLA. I'd say those are my top four. Then comes Arizona State, Colorado, and Colorado State."

Yates did not attend any camps this summer as he was taking school courses.
