Recruiting News and Notes

Mid-majors continue to look at Colorado's top players.

Currently Gateway High School is having a tough start but two way lineman Steve Crews, a 6-2 270 pounder is playing well. On offense, Crews, a very physical run blocker is improving as a pass blocker.  Defensively Crews is playing noseguard at a very high level.  Recently Penn State requested to see film of Crews on the defensive line.  Yet to gain a DI offer Montana and Utah are showing increasing interest.  Montana likes Crews on the defensive side of the ball while Utah likes him at guard. 


Former Heritage High School defensive lineman Connor Cain is having a great time at Wyoming.  A redshirt this year, Cain has twice this year, been named Defensive Scout Team Player of the week.  Cain’s younger brothers Marshall and Payton are having strong junior seasons and are starting to gain some college attention.  Marshall, 6-4 230 is starting on both sides of the line while Payton, 6-4 220 is starting on offense and getting reps on defense.  Both brothers have gained mail from Wyoming and South Dakota State.  Also the duo will hit a game at CSU-Pueblo sometime this season. 

Wyoming commit Kevin Prosser has had a strong season for his Overland squad.   Playing explosive on both sides of the ball, Prosser is solid with his Wyoming commit and will most likely play strong safety for the Cowboys. 

Outside backer Mao Niko of Lakewood is another player that is having a strong start to the season as he dominates on offense and defense.  The 6-3 225 OLB/TE, who holds a Montana offer, reports increasing interest from Colorado, Colorado State, Wyoming and New Mexico State. 

QB Justin Robert is guiding his Panthers to a very good start as Pomona sits near the top of 5A.  Roberts is gaining FCS attention and is also hearing more from in state DII power CSU-Pueblo.

Grandview safety Cameron Knight, one of the states’ best, already holds a Montana offer and is gaining increasing DI interest.  Wyoming and Colorado State are in consistent contact and the University of Washington has started to reach out.
