It has a busy couple of days for 2015 Heritage High School lineman Frank Umu. Yesterday Umu picked up an offer from Eastern Washington; today Umu made his verbal and will stay close to home and play at Colorado State.
The 6-5 275 pound two way lineman gained his offer from Colorado State in July while camping at Fort Collins. The CSU staff likes Umu on both sides of the ball and it is still up in the air whether he will play offense or defense for the Rams. Regarding the commit Umu’s father says,” Frank wants to focus on senior season. He loved the Colorado State coaches and where the program is headed.”
Umu is a good example of the Rams’ in state recruiting plan. Fellow Colorado State commits Salofi Gaoa and Olabisi Johnson, like Umu, have good upside for the next level. Gaoa of Rocky Mountain, an offensive tackle, has a long 6-6 frame that will allow him to gain weight and play tackle in college. Olabisi, a 6-1 receiver from Bear Creek, is one of Colorado’s fastest players and will be a tough cover once he tightens up his skills as a receiver. Umu, at 6-5 275, is a big framed kid, who has, over the past months, improved his footwork augmenting his surprising athleticism. Projecting two or three years, expect all three to see the field for the Rams.
