"I just got home," Gifford said. "I stuck around the the team BBQ after getting there this afternoon around 1:00 or so. I got to hang out on the field and then watched the game with the other recruits."
Gifford came away impressed. He thought that there were a couple of the younger players on offense that really stood out. He spoke with the staff after the game and he heard about a tough spring that yielded a number of injuries.
"I spoke with the staff about the game and they said that there were a lot of injuries this spring and that they are really banged up. Because of the injuries they didn't have a lot of depth and some players basically played the whole game."
There was a good number of recruits in the stands, either those with offers or without from this year and members of last year's class, and Gifford was talking with a lot of them. He mentioned having good conversations with a few of the recruits from his class.
"Some of the 2013 class was there so I talked to them. I also got a chance to talk to some of the recruits in my class. I spoke with Dominique Fenstermacher. He's a pretty cool guy and I think that he really liked it.
"Monte Harrison was there, but I didn't get a chance to see him. He was on the tour after the game I think. I also spoke with a pair of 2015 recruits from Colorado. They really liked it.
