The Colorado Buffaloes will be hosting six players this weekend with three of the players visiting come from Upland (Calif.) High. The three players are Christian Powell, running back Donta Abron and cornerback Marques Mosley.
Powell is a four-star player and is listed as an athlete but he played defensive end in high school and is expected to play football at the collegiate level. He has already taken official visits to Nebraska, Texas A&M and Washington, but is unsure if he will make a decision after the Colorado visit or take a fifth official visit. Powell also has offer from Arkansas State and San Jose State, but it is unlikely that he will be committing to those schools.
Here are highlights of Powell, he is No. 46 and on the left side of the screen before the ball is snapped:
Mosley played various positions in high school were he was a cornerback, safety, wide receiver, punt and kick returner, but he is expected to play cornerback in college. Outside of Colorado, the only other offer he has comes from Oregon State. Colorado has a 10 players listed on their depth chart, no seniors and three walk-on players, but they also have not had any cornerbacks committed for 2012.
Here are highlights for Mosley:
The third of the bunch is running back Abron who is a two-star back with offers to Idaho, New Mexico State and Stony Brook. As a senior he rushed for 1,668 yards and 32 touchdowns in 12. Colorado has already received verbal commitments from Davien Payne and Terrence Crowder. If all three commit that gives Colorado five backs at this time and likely that one or two of the incoming recruits would redshirt.
Here are highlights for Abron:
Offensive lineman Josh Tupo is the only offensive lineman to visit this weekend. Tupo comes from Buena Park, Calif., and Colorado is his third visit since November; the other two schools were Nevada and San Jose State. Other schools to have offered Tupo are Hawaii and UNLV and as of now has not been rated by the recruiting services.
Possibly the best two players to visit Colorado this week are linebacker Kyle Kelley and Yuri Wright. Kelley is a four-star rated defensive and currently has given a soft verbal to the Arizona Wildcats with 11 total offers. Most of the Pac-12 has offered Kelley as have the Oklahoma Sooners and Florida Gators.
Here are highlights of Kelley:
As for Wright, he has offers from Cal, Notre Dame, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Michigan and Rutgers.
If Colorado were to land Wright it would be a great addition to their program. In addition to being a four-star cornerback he is ranked 57th nationally among all recruits, is the No. 3 cornerback and is a member of the East squad in the Army All-American game.
Here are some highlights of Wright:
