Running Backs -
- Demetrius Sumler is in town and his decision has come down to CU and Boise State. His choice could also come as early as next week.
|Ricky Thenarse could play a number of positions at CU.|
- Ricky Thenarse is one of the biggest names in Boulder. He is being looked at primarily as a wide receiver but may also be a running back if he makes his way to Boulder. The versatile athlete is deciding between CU, Nebraska and Fresno State on ESPN, January 25th. He will be the last visitor in Boulder as he won't arrive until late Friday night.
- Spencer Paysinger is from Beverly Hills, California and his current recruiting status is not know at this time.
- Showing they are willing to recruit the South, the new staff brought in two players from Kentucky. Ben Guidugli is currently committed to Cincinatti and is said to look very good. He is said to be much bigger than the 6-2, 190 pounds Scout.com lists him at. The staff is said to like him as a tight end but he could play other positions, as well.
- Erick Faatagi is from El Camino College and is said to have three years to play two. We are unsure of his current recruiting status.
- Also from Kentucky, comes Quintin Borders from Bryan Station High School in Lexington. Borders was referred to CU by new Bryan Station Head Coach Oliver Lucas, formerly of Montbello High School in Denver. Lucas won't be at his new position until the middle of February. As a senior, Borders was named first team all-city and academic all-state. Athletic Director William Henderson says of Borders, "He is a very sharp guy. Kentucky was showing a lot of interest, but not many schools come in here to recruit. We had a pretty bad season and the new coach (former Denver South head coach Oliver Lucas) will be here in the middle of February. Quintin has one of the greatest mentalities. He is a great team player."
Defensive Lineman: There are no defensive lineman in Boulder this weekend.
|Davyon McGhee is back on the CU prospect list.|
- An old face is back. Davyon McGhee from Langham Creek High School in Houston is on an official in Boulder. Coach Hawkins visited McGhee last week.
- James Smith made it to Boulder after going back and forth on if he would take the trip. He is committed to Washington State. Smith could be a defensive back or corner, but for now the staff likes him at corner.
- Chapelle Brown is from Los Altos High School in Hacienda Heights, California. As a senior, he had 42 catches for 718 yards and nine touchdowns. He also had 10 carries for 118 yards and one touchdown. On defense, he had 25 tackles and seven interceptions. It is believed Colorado likes him at corner but he is another player that could fit in at a number of positions.
- Aaron Burks is the twin brother of Adrian Burks. Aaron also has an offer from Minnesota.
