CU Recruit-athon: Part Two

In continuance of our look at CU recruits who will be in attendance Saturday night for the Texas, we bring you part two. Here is the first part of the story as we looked at WR Emory Blake, WR Jarrod Darden, OT Jack Harris and Ath James Johnson.


Bryce Lamb ATH 3 5.6 6-0/180
Edward Nuckols DT 4 5.8 6-2/290
Kyle Van Noy  ATH 4 5.8 6-3/200
Markus Wheaton ATH 3 5.7 6-0/180
Jordan Wynn QB 3 5.6 6-2/178


Bryce Lamb
Rivals Star Rating - ***
Athlete - Chandler, AZ - Chandler High School
Recruiting Sites: Rivals - Scout -
Measurables: 6'0" 180lbs 4.45 forty time
Other offers - Arizona, Arizona State, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Oregon State, Washington State

Commentary on Lamb: There is not a lot of information on Lamb but from what is out there, you can tell he is an incredible athlete that is one of the more highly recruited three stars I have seen. Lamb plays both offense and defense, excelling at wide receiver, running back, defensive back and kick returner. He made All League in wide receiver, defensive back and as a kick returner. I guess he is pretty good friends with Ray Polk. Lamb has great quicks. Lamb is also looking at track teams where Colorado excels as well. Also, one of the nation's top prep triple jumpers and long jumpers. He broke Arizona state triple jump record as a sophomore with a 51' jump. Has jumped 52'2" since then. Lamb is one of the guys you want on your team due to his versatility. Being 6'0", I can see the Buffs loving him at either WR or CB. More to come on Lamb as we get more information.



Edward Nuckols
Rivals Star Rating - ****
Defensive Lineman - San Marcos, CA - Mission Hills High School
Recruiting Sites: Rivals - Scout -
Measurables: 6'2" 290lbs 5.1 forty time
Other offers - Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, USC, Colorado, San Diego State, Minnesota

Commentary on Nuckols: Probably one of my favorite recruits for the Colorado Buffaloes this cycle. I think this kid has great potential. As ESPN says "He is an athlete trapped in a big man's body." Nuckols is nimble enough to line up at running back in goal line situations which is always impressive for a big guy. Of course, a common criticism of all big men is keeping his pad level down but like I always say, that is something that can be taught be a good positional coach in college. ESPN has him ranked as the 12th best DT prospect while Rivals has him at 28. You can tell this kid is strong and has the ability to be very distruptive. Getting Nuckols and Kasa in this years class would go a long way in adding strength and speed to a rather non-impact defensive line currently at CU.





Kyle Van Noy
Rivals Star Rating - ****
Athlete - Reno, NV - McQueen High School
Recruiting Sites: Rivals - Scout -
Measurables: 6'3" 200lbs 4.6 forty time
Other offers -Arizona, Arizona St., California, BYU, Colorado, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, UNLV, Boise State

Commentary on Van Noy: Another one of those guys you would love to see in a Buffs uniform because of his versatility. Van Noy has great size, strength and adequate speed to be an impact player at both linebacker and wide receiver. He is a favorite recruit of all West Coast schools right now. He has a great frame and could put on 10 - 15 pounds rather easily. I think describes Van Noy the best: "Overall, Van Noy shows great natural ability, athleticism and competitiveness on the football field. Continued physical development should dictate his college position, and he is a kid who should blossom with college coaching when he concentrates on playing on one side of the ball." He is one of those players that has the physical tools to play now. He currently lists Arizona State, BYU, Oregon, Colorado and Boise State as his top 5. Of course he loves Oregon's facilities but hopefully Hawkins can sell him on Boulder this weekend. Would be a great fit at wide receiver right away. 



Markus Wheaton
Rivals Star Rating - ***
Athlete - Chandler, AZ - Chandler High School
Recruiting Sites: Rivals - Scout -
Measurables: 6'0" 180lbs 4.5 forty time
Other offers -UCLA, Oregon, Nebraska, Colorado


Commentary on Wheaton: Plays on the same team as Bryce Lamb about a scary duo for the Chandler High School team. Another one of those athletic speedsters. Can you tell that Hawkins is trying to get the Buffs a little bit faster and more versatile? He has a little bit of a inside connection with Oregon as his cousin is Kenny Wheaton, who played corner for the Ducks. Needs to get a little more physical and stronger but has great athleticism. Wheaton can play both WR and CB. Statistically, Markus Wheaton was named 1st team all-region and honorable mention all-state as a WR during his junior year. Caught 23 passes for 476 yards and six TDs. Also rushed for 315 yards and 4 more scores and recorded 49 tackles and 1 INT as a DB.


Jordan Wynn
Rivals Star Rating - ***
Athlete - Oceanside, CA - Oceanside High School
Recruiting Sites: Rivals - Scout -
Measurables: 6'2" 175lbs 4.7 forty time
Committed to Colorado
Other offers - Colorado, San Diego State, Utah, Colorado State, Iowa State

Commentary on Wynn: All this guy does is win ball games. Here is what we had to say about him on the Ralphie Report back in the old days: "Jordan Wynn have verbally committed to joining the team in 2009. Wynn is a 6'2" pro-style QB from California led his team to the Division II State Championship last year. He threw for over 2,500 yards and 21 touchdowns during his second team all-state season last year. Wynn, from Oceanside, has a teammate OL named Brian Schwenke that the Buffs are recruiting as well." Things you hear when these scouting services describe Wynn are gunslinger, confident, smart, great arm. Of course he needs to add a little bulk but he has all the tools to be a good quarterback at Colorado. A love this quote about Wynn from "Overall, Wynn is one of the classes better passers and is likely not getting the attention he should from some of the bigger boys on the block. Very good prospect." He has led his high school team to an undefeated start and has put up great numbers thus far. Also Ralphie Report readers, we will be having an interview with Jordan after the Texas game so stay tuned.
