Recruiting News and Notes

Visits, offers and verbals highlight this hectic week as signing day fast approaches.

Rock Canyon QB Ryan Hommel is finishing up an official visit at Fort Lewis.  The 2015 prospect hopes to make a decision sometime this week.

Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas continues to mine successfully for Colorado talent.  The latest 2015 prospect to commit is Cherry Creek athlete Jaylon Jones.  The Rangy 6-3 hybrid receiver has tremendous upside and is a great pickup for the Ichabods.

Jones’ teammate James Parker, one of the most hardnosed players in Colorado, has picked up two offers this week with Black Hills State and DII champs CSU-Pueblo offering the nasty center/long snapper. 

One key reason CSU-Pueblo hoisted the DII championship trophy was their ability to gain the best Colorado talent.  An example of this in 2015 Grandview lineman Willie Hayes, who committed to the ThunderWolves this week.  The 6-5 260 pound Hayes is a player who has great potential and has his best football in front of him.

Another of Colorado’s top offensive linemen Jake Lauber of Fort Collins is looking hard at Fort Lewis.  Lauber, a PrepColorado All-Stater, would get FCS and mid-major looks is he was a couple of inches taller.

QB Kyle Gallup of Chaparral has his heart set on playing DI football and as such he is looking at Junior College and preferred walk-on opportunities.  Gallup reports he is looking at Ventura Community College in California.  Colorado State Tulsa, Jacksonville State, Southern Miss and Colorado are the potential walk-on schools for Gallup.

Lutheran receiver Josh Clausen took a visit to the University of Kansas this weekend.  The Jayhawks offered Clausen a preferred walk-on position. 

D.J. Luke took his official to Augustana this weekend.  The Cherry Creek power back committed to Augustana earlier this month. 

Mullen defensive back James Jones was at West Point this weekend for his Army official visit. 

Defensive lineman Frank Umu of Heritage, who committed to the University of Colorado, took his official visit to Boulder this weekend. 

Rampart kicker Tristan Bailey will take his foot to the University of Wyoming.

Max McDonald of Rocky Mountain High School gained and then accepted an offer to play for hometown Colorado State.  McDonald will join his high school teammate Salofi Gaoa with the Rams.
