Recently had the chance to look at film of numerous good,but somewhat under the radar 2015 Colorado high school football athletes. Each of these players has the ability to play college ball at one level or another.
Keelan Poole 6-2 185 Grandview Safety
Poole is in the mode of Grandview safeties of the past in that he spends much of his time in the box or blitzing. Most impressive is his ability to make tackles in the open field. Also, he is a very aggressive and decisive tackler who is always attacking the ball carrier. I would like to see how big Poole is next year in that he may be a college outside linebacker. Poole is also a very good special teams player. Poole is worth FCS looks.
Peyton Remy 6-2 165 Legend Quarterback
Solid mechanics and good athleticism. He can run around a little, but he is best suited to play in a spread offense with quick throws. Like many young signal callers he locks in too early on his receiver, but that is fixable. Remy's arm is not a rocket but he can make the throws necessary for his offense. DIIs and small schools should take a look.
Blake Whitsell 6-3 250 Broomfield Defensive Tackle
Broomfield has a long history of good interior defensive linemen and Whitsell is next in line. Like his predecessors Whitsell is coached up and technically very sound. He is very strong and gets push against the offensive line. Further,Whitsell uses his hands very well. Whitsell is not explosive, but he is strong and is able to consistently defeat double teams. An added bonus for colleges to look at is Whitsell's ability to snap on field goals and extra points. Whitsell could be a very good DII player.
Josiah Hall 6-1 195 Falcon Athlete
Hall is one of the more interestingly players I have watched this season. As a receiver Hall is averaging nearly 25 yards a reception. On defense Hall leads his Falcon squad in sacks and is one of the team's leading tacklers. Offensively, he is a hands catcher who has no fear working and making catches in traffic across the middle. Hall is not a burner, but he has a varied set of skills and athleticism. I'm currently not sure his level of play. He could be a very good DII player, but if he can get bigger and faster he may get FCS looks. Most likely Hall plays college ball as a linebacker.
Marcus Garcia 6-3 275 Delta Offensive Tackle
At the next level Garcia is a guard in that pass blocking is not his forte. As a run blocker, Garcia is physical and gets after it as a straight up blocker. Garcia could be a nice fit at the right RMAC school.
