Recruiting News and Notes

Three was a magic number this week as one prospect received a trio of offers and three top recruits gained a major honor.

The recruiting fortunes of 2015 Mullen DB James Jones moved at such a quick pace of late that it seemed as if PrepColorado was his own website. The trio of offers began with Hawaii and was quickly followed by Morgan State and now Jones reports Grambling is on board.  These three offers are just the start for a defensive back that can play both corner and safety and is comfortable in coverage and making tackles near the line of scrimmage.  James is getting an ever increasing amount of mail from big schools such as Colorado, Washington and Missouri.


The depth and talent of Colorado prospects for the class of 2015 was evidenced this week as safety Avery Anderson of Pine Creek, corner Eric Lee of Valor Christian and offensive lineman Tim Lynott of Regis were all selected to play in the Army All-American Bowl.  Anderson and Lee were early commits to Nebraska and they seem very solid with the Huskers thus the reason schools across the nation have not offered.  Lynott is a national level recruit with a dozen offers and more coming. 


Scholar athlete Zach Peterson had multiple Ivy schools come by Prairie View High School to take a look.  Peterson, 6-3 230, is a rugged blocker who has really shown his athleticism working in 7on7 this offseason.  Cornell, Dartmouth and Penn all made the trek to Henderson this week to check out this undervalued prospect. Mid-majors Colorado State and Wyoming will hit Prairie View this upcoming week.


Quick Takes

Anthony Karmayzn, 2015 receiver from Eaglecrest is an interesting prospect for two reasons; He is a legit 6-6 and he is a productive hands catcher.  Karmayzn lines up in multiple spots to catch the ball, he is not fast, but he does a pretty good job getting yards after the catch. 

2015 small school QB Adison Jones of Ignacio High School is an interesting prospect, standing 6-3 weighing 190 pounds and possessing very good athleticism.  Jones is a three sport athlete, who was an All-State selection in basketball.  At his level of football Jones was very efficient throwing 25 TDs against only six interceptions. 

2015 Pomona QB Justin Roberts competed last weekend at the Dallas Elite 11 event.  Roberts, who had limited throws in Pomona's run offense, showed in Dallas his ability to make multiple throws.
