So, we would like to hear from you, the readers, on how you think recruiting is going so far. After the avalanche of recruits in the past seven days (6 total with Nuckols, Kasa, Thornton, Webb, West and Grossnickle), the Buffs currently are winding down on their allotted amount of scholarships for the 2009 cycle. Coach Hawkins has stated that he wants to get 20 - 22 commits. I have updated the offensive and defensive breakdowns we did a month ago by position by year after the jump for you to use a reference.
Here is what we would like to know:
1) What position is now the new priority #1 with the six or so remaining spots (use the charts after the jump if you need some help)? What is your reasoning and if you have a few players in mind, jot them down?
2) What is the one current commit that the Buffs cannot afford to lose between now and signing day?
3) Grade Dan Hawkins and Co's recruiting performance for 2009 so far? Have they underachieved, equaled or exceeded your expectations?
4) Right now, who is your favorite commit?
Don't be shy...we have got a lot of lurkers these days and want to hear what you have to say!
We will do this same thing in 15 days after signing day but we are at a good spot now to start grading this class.
