Not sure if Colorado can land a commitment from Erik Brown. However, he said he's keeping his options open. Details below, of course.
With the 7on7 passing tournament in full swing, some of the premier prospects in the nation assembled for the recent B2G Elite 16 and put on show for those in attendance.
Not sure if I see much point in reading Sean Ceglinsky's updates when he continually reminds us that we are a mediocre program, and our offers are likely not to be considered if there are any other Pac XII programs in the mix.
I don't need sunshine pumped up my ass, but I usually don't see network reporters going out of their way to point out that CU is an also ran.
Is he a "network" guy or tied to another specific fan site?
Like to think I'm optimistic about Colorado's chances with recruits when I post something to Buff Scoop. Doing by best to keep Buffaloes fans updated on potential prospects. In this instance however, regardless of what Brown says, I don't see it happening. My guts tells me he ends up at UCLA. Just keeping it real. Typically, you guys ask me about the likeliness of landing a commitment from these kids. Attempted to beat everyone to the punch this time around. Can't win with you guys. Tough crowd. It's all good though.
Covering UCLA for Bruin247. Responsible for the network's weekly Pac-12 Recruiting Roundup as well. Hope to have some good news for Buff Scoop fans at some point soon. Before, that is, you guys run me out of town.
I don't think it's being a tough crowd, I think almost everyone here understands we are in a position that we are no longer going to sign a lot of highly ranked recruits but when you make the statement "Odds are, however, Brown won't be playing Boulder. With scholarships from UCLA and Washington, it's more than reasonable to expect him to land at one of those destinations.", this comes across as very unprofressional. Just keeping it real.
It also comes on top of the Sam Jones update where you mentioned that we just can't recruit against the "elite" programs of the Pac XII. As Homer said, the CU fan base knows where we stand. We are in a huge rebuild mode and part of that is rebuilding the perception of our "football brand" with recruits. That being said, you can point out where we stand without saying we are an inferior program.
Fair enough. Didn't think the tough crowd comment would get me in hot water considering the nature of the demeanor on this board and the fact AZ said things can be sarcastic around these parts from time to time. Bottom line: Brown has said those two schools, UW and UCLA, are his leaders. We've done stories in the past about this topic, as well. Reporting the facts, that's all. Also, fully understand we're talking about teenagers who can change their minds on a whim. That said, thought it was interesting that Brown mentioned Colorado. Perhaps the Buffs will emerge as a player for him. Plan to monitor the situation, regardless, and keep Buff Scoop updated.
Get what your saying. Not trying to bash the Buffaloes, mind you. Everything comes and goes in cycles in college ball and I think that Colorado is on the right track towards emerging as a player on the Pac-12 Conference recruiting scene. There will be some bumps along the way, however. Utah is in the same boat since joining the conference. A number of other teams tend to play second fiddle to the likes of Oregon, UCLA and USC. It's the nature of the beast. Suppose I can choose my words a bit differently when providing updates on high-profile recruits, such as Jones, if their interest in Colorado is on the verge of wavering. Cross that bridge when it happens.
I can't imagine how one hits his head on the gear shifter
Just hope he's alright
