Lynn Katoa has committed to CU. Ranked the #2 MLB in the US by Scout and Rivals, he is also listed as #62 in the nation overall by Rivals. He joins Will Pericak and Jon Major as interesting LB prospects in this years class. Major, btw, despite being listed as a DE at Rivals, ranks #75 in the nation. Things are looking painful for future Buff opponents.
According to Scout.com, this makes two 5 star recruits for CU and brings CU’s class up to 28th in the nation with only 13 recruits. I did a quick count, and only two schools are ranked higher with less recruits. I love playing with these rankings, but really, once you get up to a certain level, I think it comes down to how you utilize that talent (See Clemson or Florida State). CU is fast approaching the level where “talent” or “athletic ability” will not be an excuse in another year or two, especially if we get some more classes like this and our promising underclassmen mature.
Don’t forget, but depending on who you ask, CU is still the frontrunner for Mr. Darrell Scott’s services as well. IF Scott commits, one has to wonder what becomes of Ray Polk, the 4 star RB recruit. The plan was to move him to LB if Scott committed, but now it seems the Buffs have some serious talent at the position already. Where will Polk fit? I think a team can never have to many RB’s, but Cabral seems like King Midas to me, so I would have no problem seeing him get another young talent to work with.
Now, about the defensive and offensive lines…
