Hagan Jr. Returns From Boulder

<b>Darian Hagan Jr.</b> is the most popular recruit on the board this recruiting cycle with Colorado fans. He took a visit to Boulder over the weekend to visit his father, CU coach <b>Darian Hagan</b>, and take in the Buffs' spring game. While in Colorado, he had a chance to hang out with some of the current players and get a good look at the players he would be competing with if he decides to don the black and gold.

Height: 6-1
Weight: 175

From: Los Angeles, California
High School: Crenshaw

"The trip was fun," said Darian Hagan Jr. "The game did not go too well because they didn't play too good. It was mainly the offense. They played pretty bad. The defense looked pretty good. The safeties looked pretty good."

Hagan Jr. seemed primed to be a free safety in college but upon tape review, colleges are now looking at him at another position. "Most say they like me at corner. Colorado likes me at corner."

Incoming recruit Gardner McKay II was a corner at Crenshaw in the same d-backfield as Hagan Jr. The two could be reunited in CU's secondary if Hagan decides on the Buffs. "I still hang with Gardner a lot and he talks about going there. He will be a good player there."

Jr. got a chance to chat with current Buff players and coaches. "I hung out with Ryan (Walters), Lawrence (Vickers), Dominique (Brooks), Lorenzo (Sims), and Vance (Washington). We went to eat and then went back to the house and hung out. They are a good bunch of guys. I also spoke with Coach Bray. He is a good guy and is also pretty funny."

Colorado has definitely moved up on Hagan's list. "My top three right now are UCLA, Cal and Colorado. I do not have a favorite. I also like Michigan, Miami, Florida, Florida State, and Georgia. I get mail from those schools, but my offers right now are from UCLA, Cal, CU, Arizona, and Oregon."

He claims that UCLA is recruiting him the hardest. The Crenshaw star is being recruited to Westwood by former CU coach, Eric Bieniemy.

It sounds like Hagan Sr. let it be known with his son what he thinks could happen if he brought his game to the Flatirons. "He thinks I would have a real good opportunity to come in and play early."

Hagan Jr. is expected to compete in the Scout.com combine in L.A., May 14th. Other summer camp plans are unknown at this time.
