It is difficult for offensive lineman to gain notice. It is even more difficult if you play on a team that is filled with college caliber lineman. Thus is the case for 2014 Valor offensive Ryan Cummings. The 6-4 290 pound offensive guard plays between two of Colorado's highest recruited players in tackles Alec Ruth and Isaiah Holland. Also, while people watch the offensive exploits of Stanford bound running back Christian McCaffrey they fail to notice that Cummings and crew have created a massive hole.
Cummings, a three sport athlete who along with football, competes in wrestling and track, is a very good run blocker and a catalyst for the Eagles' run game.
Currently Cummings does not hold an offer, but he has steady interest from multiple programs. Regarding in state schools Cummings says, "I have been mainly talking to Colorado and Colorado State. I feel like Colorado State may make an offer in the next week or two and I'm still communicating with Colorado."
Along with Colorado and Colorado State, Cummings reports Northern Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Indiana State, Ball State and Northern Arizona are all showing interest. Talking about his potential options Cummings says, "It would be nice to stay in state but I will go anywhere I had to to play."
Although even the best offensive linemen toil in anonymity,Cummings should get plenty of opportunities to put his game on display as the Eagles finish up the regular season and most likely make a long playoff run. All of this done in front of numerous college coaches who make the pilgrimage to Highlands Ranch to watch a Valor program already known for having great talent.
