Coach MacIntyre came into the summer to chew bubblegum and get ‘croots, and he’s all out of bubblegum. This week, CU played host to a whole host of prospects, and at least two decided to commit to coming back. I’m sure that this isn’t the full list, but these are the prospects that publicly announced their visit.
Just touched down in Colorado ✊— Malik Putney (@_mputney3) June 22, 2017
Malik Putney is a safety from the state of Washington. Currently, he holds offers Idaho, Airforce, Army, Montana State, and Hawaii. He stands at 6’0 and about 200 pounds, so he’s solidly built. His tape shows a versatile athlete that can play the run and the pass.
Jarrell Anderson is a tight end prospect that also hails from the Washington area. He recently committed to Hawaii over offers from Nevada, Idaho, Montana State, Portland State, and Utah State. He is a rangy receiver at TE at 6’4 and about 220 that can make plays downfield. Something that CU hasn’t done in a while consistently.
Daniel Arias is the third player in the trio from Washington and the most nationally-recruited. A big WR at 6’4 and 190, Arias holds offers from almost every school in the Pacific Northwest and a few more Pac-12 schools. Limiting the list to just P5 programs plus Boise State, CU’s competition is Oregon State and Utah, with Oregon, UCLA, and both Washington schools sniffing around. He is a smooth athlete with long strides that can absolutely go and get the ball. He is a name to watch going forward into this recruiting cycle.
This is one of the more intriguing names on the list. Delrick Abrams is a classic Coach MacIntyre corner from Independence Community College in Kansas. He is long, at 6’3 and about 180, and mean, as you can see. The exact type of player that MacIntyre has had huge success with (Ahkello Witherspoon). He visited CU officially, which is a big deal, considering his list of suitors includes Arizona State, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, UCLA, and West Virginia. This would be a coup if Abrams decides to come to Boulder.
Another big time junior college prospect, Greg Eisworth, made his way to CU for a visit. He’s a little on the short side at 5’11, but he’s thick and he’s physical enough for a safety. He spent his freshman year at Trinity Junior College in Texas after bouncing back from Ole Miss. His senior season tape shows some serious athleticism and physicality, and he would fit right in to the MoneyGang. Houston, CSU, and Iowa State are some of the other programs after him.
Now we get to the prospects who committed on their visit.
I won’t waste your time here when we have a wonderful article on Broussard when he committed. But he is a freaky athlete. Texas athleticism is always welcome.
We also have a wonderful article on Davion Taylor from his commitment. He is another crazy athlete. Once again, I repeat, 10.63 100 meter dash as a 220 pounds linebacker. Unreal.
That’s a breakdown of all the visitors for CU this week. More recruiting content is sure to follow in the next few weeks, so check back at Ralphie Report to look at future Buffs.
