2 Great articles in the DC about incoming recruits

Kyle Ringo does as a great job explaining how CU landed 3 top tier recruits from an elite HS.

Kenneth Crawley is described as the most game ready of the 3 from Woodson. What's interesting is how Wayne Johnson, Woodson HC, describes De'Jon Wilson -

De'Jon is a kid who can be an All-American as long as he's doing what he's supposed to do and learning the system and everything the Colorado staff asks of him," he said. "If he's doing that and he's playing fast every play, you all are going to see an animal."

This is something I have read before about De'Jon. The kid has a high ceiling but the key will be for the CU staff to get this guy to play every down.

The article doesn't expound much on Walker other than saying he is the most versatile of the group. It should be interesting to see what position he ends up at.

What surprised me was Wayne Johnson's admiration for Greg Brown.

Johnson said he is a longtime admirer of CU defensive coordinator Greg Brown. He said he and Brown teach many of the same things to their defensive backs. In fact, Johnson began using a teaching tape that Brown put together 20 years ago during his first stint in Boulder as secondary coach under Bill McCartney.

Who knew. I think the pipeline from Woodson to CU is a great new development by the staff and hopefully it pays off for years to come.

The other article breaks down our 2 high profile incoming QB's. I'm still not sold that Dillon is the real deal but I am optimistic that he will have time to mature and develop behind Connor Wood, who I'm excited about. I have read that one of the big reasons Wood could not lock down the starting QB spot at UT was because of his inaccuracy. I was extremely impressed with the job Rip Sherer did with Hansen. It took a while but towards the end of the year Hansen had really shown marks of improvement. If Rip can do the same job with Wood that he did with Hansen I think 6-7 wins next season is not out of the question.
