Local Athlete Attends Junior Day

95 percent of the players that attended Colorado's junior day came from in-state and there were a handful of athletes that the CU staff will be keeping their eyes on. Whether eventual offers are extended or eventual walk-on invitations are verbalized, the staff plans on taking a hard look at every player within the state borders. A local safety/corner to watch hails from Arapahoe High School.

As a junior, Blake Menter had his season shortened by a broken elbow, but still managed to garner five touchdowns at tailback and an interception on defense. "I am a quick, agile and heads-up kind of player," Menter says.

The local product is very fond of the Buffs and attended the recent junior day. "I think Colorado is the coolest place to live. I love the mountains. I have been living here my whole life. I would love to go to CU. I think it is the coolest place ever. They are a big favorite for me."

He was expecting a recent visit from Coach Hawkins. "Dan Hawkins was supposed to come to the school last Friday, but he never showed up. I think he is supposed to come back within a couple weeks."

Menter is also looking at, and hearing from, Colorado State, Utah, Boise State, and Iowa State.

He says that most schools have expressed an interest in him as a free safety.

This summer, he is unsure of camp plans, but says he might go to CU's.

Menter carries a 2.8 core GPA and is taking the ACT, tomorrow. He is taking the SAT, June 3rd.
