Buffs Land 6th Commit Safety Willie Kennedy From North Carolina

7

Two star safety Willie Kennedy from Gastonia (NC) Ashbrook has committed to Dan Hawkins and the Buffs. Yes, he is only a two star but with a Dykes and Walters being seniors, we need all the bodies we can get. It is also nice that Hawkins was able to wrangle a kid from North Carolina. According the Rivals, Missouri and Marshall also offered Willie. Kennedy is 5'11" 180 lbs. More to come on him. Some thoughts on Willie from a two minute highlight tape on Rivals: He looks pretty explosive. You can tell he needs to add some size being only 180 lbs. Likes to play aggressive and isn't afraid to play at the line of scrimmage. It almost looks like he played the rover position in high school. He probably projects better as a cornerback than a safety due to his size. Has a propensity to arm tackle which will need to be corrected at the next level. He either takes aim and nails the guy will his shoulder or he reaches for tackles never having that full wrap up tackle. He has good speed at 4.6 and it shows on film. Has the ability to play in the opposing teams backfield and doesn't seem apprehensive about getting himself in a position to make a play. The 2* star rating looks about right.

According to the Daily Camera: CU coach wants longterm deals for assistants Colorado coach Dan Hawkins signed a contract extension with modest pay increases and will be the coach in Boudler through the end of the 2012 season. The new contract became effective July 1 this year and was signed last week. Hawkins will earn $951,720 this season prior to incentives. The new deal includes some changes to his incentive package, including a $50,000 bonus for winning seven games in a season, and a $25,000 bonus for winning eight games. The contract also includes a buyout clause throughout the term of the deal. Hawkins would have to pay CU $1 million if he left the school for another job before the end of the 2009 season. If Hawkins was to fulfill every incentive in his contract in the fourth or fifth year of the deal, he would earn approximately $2.5 million.

RB Ray Polk to Redshirt

After initial reports that Polk would not agree to redshirt, he has opted to redshirt knowing that he would be 5th on the depth chart entering the season. From post discussions on the boards, I think this is a good move for the future for both Polk and the Buffs. Your thoughts?
