Recruiting News and Notes

This week's quick takes on Colorado's top football prospects

Kyle Gallup of Chaparral was an MVP at the Prime 21 camp in Dallas.  Gallup was impressed with the speed and talent of the camp stating, "It gives me a taste of what the next level is like and makes me a better player having to play with these kids."  Gallup was especially excited because his quarterback coach at Prime 21 was long time NFLer Jeff Blake. 


2015 Valor outside backer Gabriel Watkins reports doing well at Colorado camp this past weekend stating, "Coach MacIntyre says he was impressed and they are really interested and are going to start recruiting me pretty hard, so I'm excited."  Watkins says Colorado State, Utah State, New Mexico State, Weber State, Holy Cross and Northern Colorado are interested.  Watkins currently plans to camp at Arizona State in July.    


Another player that came away feeling very positive about their time at Colorado this past weekend was Joseph Parker of Cherry Creek.  Parker, who holds offers from Wyoming and Colorado State, says he gained positive feedback from receiver coach Troy Walters.  Parker also said he and his family met with Buffalo HC Mike MacIntyre.


Whether you are a fan of the University of Colorado or not, it is great to see the Buffs keep top talent in the state.  Regis offensive lineman Tim Lynott opting to play for Colorado is big.  Colorado's top prospect for 2014, Christian McCaffrey did not consider the in state schools and it has been some time since the state's national level recruits have placed Colorado or Colorado State at the top of their lists. Hopefully Lynott's decision sets a trend.


2015 Grandview OLB/S Keelan Poole camped at Wyoming and according to his father "received some really positive feedback from the coaches."   Keelan also showed well at Colorado, running with the first group of backers. Poole will finish his camps with stops at Washington and San Jose State. Keelan is currently hearing from Arizona, Colorado, Washington, Wyoming and San Jose State.

One of the busiest athletes in Colorado is 2015 Douglas County QB Rope Ruel. Ruel says his Douglas County squad did well at Colorado State team camp.  With new Head Coach Gene Hill taking control, Ruel has, "a good feeling about this season with our new offense."
