Busy week for Colorado's best as they get ready for the 2014 season.

2015 Pomona QB Justin Roberts just returned from camp at North Dakota State.  Roberts was one of four quarterbacks that worked out for NDSU. While there Roberts toured facilities with quarterback coach Randy Hedberg.  Along with North Dakota State the other college showing the most interest is South Dakota State. 

Colorado State was active this weekend extending offers to in state players. Intriguing Glenwood Springs youngster Dante Sparaco, picked up an offer from the Rams.  At 6-4 220, the multi-talented 2017 prospect gained the first of what will be multiple DI offers. 

2015 6-5 275 pound Heritage DT/OT Frank Umu also gained a Colorado State offer while attending the Rams’ camp.

Colorado State also offered and got a verbal from Bear Creek WR/DB Olabisi Johnson.  Johnson, the Colorado 5A 110 hurdle champion, is one of the fastest players I have seen in Colorado for quite some time.  A great student that also has an Air Force offer and Ivy interest, Johnson is a big framed kid that has great potential. 

Cherry Creek athlete Tyus Carter reports his performance at Colorado State, “went very well.”  Carter, who is being recruited as both a receiver and corner, worked out as a receiver for the Rams.  After camp Carter worked with secondary coach and Co-Defensive coordinator Al Simmons.  After the workout Simmons took Carter’s contact information. Carter is excited about the potential of getting a CSU offer and hopes to make it to Fort Collins for a couple of games this fall.
