Northern Colorado leads the way. Colorado State has an outside shot.
But one school Jon Burnley won't be playing for next year is Wyoming.
The Cowboys extended the 6-foot, 185-pound running back a scholarship this summer after seeing film of his all-state junior season. Burnley rewarded the Pokes with another all-state performance as a senior, racking up 1,500 yards of total offense. He also made an official visit to Laramie in late November and came away with Wyoming at the top of his list.
But with the hiring of offensive coordinator Bob Cole at UW, the Palmer High School (Colo.) standout's recruiting took a dramatic change.
"Wyoming just told me that they're not looking for a running back anymore," Burnley said, "so I don't think I'll be headed there.
"(Cole) just switched everything up…they said they just aren't going to give a running back (a scholarship) this year."
With the Wyoming scholarship off the table, the door was open for Big Sky Conference member Northern Colorado to push for Burnley, and the Bears offered the big-play rusher a scholarship on Monday.
"I have a visit up to UNC on the 19th," he said. "If I like it up there, I'm just going to verbally commit.
"I might just stay out there (for four years) and help them become winners."
At this point, it appears the only other school that could change Burnley's plans is Colorado State, although the Rams have yet to extend the senior a scholarship.
"I'm kind of waiting on CSU," he said. "They just got a little coaching change."
Burnley hopes that coaching change will be kinder to him than Wyoming's has been.
