One of the roughest pieces of news regarding recruiting is the knee injury sustained by 2017 Pomona lineman Jake Moretti while competing at Ohio State camp. Moretti, Colorado’s top prospect for the Class of 2017, was an early commit to the Buckeyes last summer. In typical Moretti fashion, all about business, Moretti is humble and focused on getting better stating, “yeah just have to be positive, I really appreciate the thoughts.”
Moretti will miss his senior season for a Pomona squad that is one of the state’s best teams and a threat to again make it to the Colorado title game. Moretti still plans on graduating early and enrolling in January at Ohio State. There is little doubt Moretti will overcome this setback, putting his strong work ethic in play to come back even better.
2017 ThunderRidge offensive tackle Heston Paige hit the University of Virginia camp this weekend. The big, 6-5 255 pound offensive tackle currently holds four offers with Northern Arizona, North Dakota, Northern Colorado and Air Force interested in his services. Colorado and Colorado State are starting to show more interest in the big tackle from a high school program known for placing offensive linemen into DI colleges.
2017 Mountain Vista receiver Kellen Parker was at Harvard Camp this weekend. Parker is a true hidden gem in Colorado. At 6-2 205 pounds, Parker has great size, further, he has good speed and is also a returner.
Valor QBs Dylan McCaffrey (2017) and Blake Stenstrom (2018) took part in the Ann Arbor Aerial Assault camp this past weekend. Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh oversees the one of a kind camp that has signal callers doing non-football drills such as hitting cutoff men with a baseball and many other athletic based drills. Adding to the camp’s allure are the numerous Michigan football alum as well as current and former NFLers.
Stenstrom, who holds an offer from Colorado, has also recently camped at Stanford and Washington. The 6-3 200 pound junior is the son of former Stanford and NFL quarterback Steve Strenstrom.
