Nearly a month ago Mike Bobo was named Head Coach of Colorado State. Once hired Bobo had the task of maintaining 2015 recruits and evaluating 2016 and 2017 recruits. Within the state of Colorado regarding the class of 2015 the Rams held Rocky Mountain lineman Salofi Gaoa and Bear Creek athlete Olabisi Johnson. Heritage defensive lineman Frank Umu an early Colorado State commit opted out of verbal to the Rams and committed to the University of Colorado.
With the dead period over, the Rams under Bobo have reached out to multiple talented 2016 and 2017 Colorado recruits. Giant 6-4 237 pound 2017 Glenwood Springs quarterback Dante Sparaco reports Colorado State assistant Marty English, a holdover from the McElwain staff, Colorado native and longtime Colorado recruiter, contacted Sparaco’s high school Head Coach Rocky Whitworth, inviting Sparaco to Colorado State’s Junior Day. Sparaco, who was offered a scholarship by the McElwain staff, stated, “Coach English said they are still going to recruit me, so I’m excited about that.”
Another talented in state quarterback, junior Matt Lynch of Legacy High School, made an early verbal commit to the Rams, reports Coach Bobo came by the Legacy on Thursday to meet Lynch and invite him to a basketball game. Yesterday both Colorado and Wyoming dropped by Legacy to meet Lynch. Lynch said he met Head Coach Bohl of the Cowboys and was invited to see the new Buff facilities in Boulder.
Potentially the prize of the Colorado underclassmen, lineman Jake Moretti of Pomona, a national level recruit from the class of 2017, was popular this week as Bobo and English of the Rams and offensive line coach Gary Bernardi of Colorado came by the school.
Beyond Colorado State and Colorado, numerous coaches from across the nation will make the trek to Colorado evaluating and communicating with the diverse and talented group of players that make up the classes of 2016 and 2017.
