Recruiting News & Notes

Colorado's best have a busy spring hitting Junior Days and making visits.

2016 Regis defensive lineman Ace Escobedo took an east coast tour hitting multiple schools.  The itinerary included Ivy and Patriot League programs.  Regarding his stop at Brown Escobedo said it was, “Awesome, I loved the campus, the coaches, and the program in general.”   Yale, Columbia, Lehigh, Harvard, Holy Cross and Penn were all stops.

Colorado State, under new Head Coach Mike Bobo, brought in much of Colorado’s top talent this past weekend for Junior Day.  Glenwood Springs quarterback Dante Sparaco said of his time at Colorado State, “It could not have been better! It was awesome! I really enjoyed the one on one time I got to spend with Coach Bobo and watching film with Coach Letson.”

Englewood defensive lineman Kyle Robideau hit Montana State Jr Day this past weekend.  This past season Robideau had had sacks and recovered five fumbles. 

2016 Cherokee Trail athlete Ammon Johnson is gaining initial interest due to his great size and athleticism.  Johnson, a 6-2 175 pound receiver, like most of Colorado’s best, has a very busy spring planned.  Johnson will hit a combine in Arizona and potentially camp at Colorado, Colorado State and Northern Colorado.  Johnson, who is taking multiple AP courses, also plans to camp at Yale. 

This past month Horizon linebacker Wes Exum took trips to Air Force and Colorado State.  The 6-3 210 pound backer is a player to watch in the state of Colorado for the class of 2016.   A very long athlete, with a great frame, Exum plays inside for Horizon where he registered 81 tackles with nine for a loss.  Exum looks suited to play outside backer in college, but his time in the middle will help prep him for the physical rigors of college ball.  Exum is somewhat raw, but he makes plays that pop on film showing his upside. 

Scout’s Doug Kimmel is reporting Fariview DE/OLB Carlo Kemp will take an unofficial to Stanford in early April.  Kemp, considered Colorado’s top 2016 prospect, has a diverse offer sheet that should build this offseason.
