Dream Come True for Texas Defensive End

It only took Missouri City defensive end, Sean Estelle, a few days to mull over his offer from Colorado before committing. Estelle chose the Buffs over a handful of other offers and says Colorado will be getting an aggressive, pass-rushing specialist when he arrives on campus. The defensive end is fully qualified.

Height: 6-3
Weight: 245
40 time: 4.7
Bench: 305
Squat: 525
Clean: 315
Vertical:'32
From: Missouri City, Texas

As a junior, Sean Estelle recorded 88 tackles, four sacks, 31 pressures, seven forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Estelle was named first team all-district. "I am a very aggressive player," he claims. "We could be down by 60 points and I will still be going 110 percent. I am quick off the ball. I feel I could use some work on my hands."

He committed to Colorado last night. "It has always been a dream school of mine. I never would have thought they would offer me. I have done a lot of research on them and now I am ready to go in there and snag my spot."

Estelle had a very good experience the first time he saw the Buffs play. "The first time I saw the Buffaloes on TV was when Kordell Stewart threw the Hail Mary pass to beat Michigan. I have been a fan ever since. In all the NCAA games, Colorado is my team."

He was recruited to CU by Coach Wristen.

Seeing the 'Miracle in Michigan' is not the only thing that persuaded him to Boulder. "I have aunts, uncles and cousins that live about five miles from the University. I am close with them so it will be good to have family there."

Before verbally committing to the CU staff, Estell had written offers from Northwestern, Indiana, Iowa State, Mississippi State, Houston, and UTEP. "I have one more, but I can't think of who it is right now."

He will be making one camp this summer when he heads to Mississipppi State on July 23rd. "I am just going there to get away. I am totally committed to Colorado."

Now Estelle says he will be working on his teammate. "I would like Dimitri Lott to come there with me. It would be great to have a friend go there when I do."

The defensive end is fully qualified with a 3.2 core GPA and a score of 950 on his SAT. He is thinking of a major in Criminal Justice.
