News And Notes From Another Crazy Recruiting Year

One thing is for sure, nothing is a sure thing when it comes to recruiting Schools experience commits and then de-commits as young men weigh their options for playing college football at the next level. The CU Buffs, like every other college team, dealt with this fact but overall nailed a solid class. With a few top recruits still out there, the Buffs rank could go up even higher.

One of the big concerns for the Colorado Buffaloes entering the 2003 recruiting season was the question: How will the Buffs recruiting class be affected by the departure of several coaches?

The answer to that question is it hasn't. Since two assistant coaches left for UCLA, the Buffs have still landed some big recruits, including the second ranked player in the state WR Stephon Robinson yesterday.

As of right now, the Buffs have 24 players signed, and are still in the running for top prospects Carnell Stewart and Ced Williams. The NCAA allows schools to sign 25 players, but many schools will oversign the amount and count on attrition scaling back to 25 players. Just ask the University of Tennessee.

CB Chris Russell from Nashville had basically commited to his home state university but suddenly took a visit to CU. After that, UT yanked their scholarship offer and the Buffs nailed one of the top CB/S in the nation. But commits give and take. The Buffs probably had 3-4 players de-commit this season.

Over-all the Buffs did pretty well for themselves but questions still surround who will be the starting QB next season. CU will hold a press conference today to announce all of their signings and Buffs Insider will be there. Check out the site throughout the day for the latest signings and recruit inforation.
