DAN WETZEL: [INAUDIBLE] is classic America, right? We build them up, then we tear them down. The transfer outs are not bad. Everyone's losing guys. We will see what happens with the portal coming in.
He has a huge next three weeks. It probably will determine his future at Colorado whether how invested he is in staying or not. His recruiting class only has nine players. My concern with him is if he does not go out and recruit, part of that I think is his health, part of it is he wants people to come visit him. But I don't know if you can make that work.
So the number one recruit in the class of 2025 is Bryce Underwood from Belleville, Michigan. And Deion called this year. And Bryce and his dad went out there and it's exciting. But Nick Saban is going to go to his house. Jim Harbaugh is going to go to his house. Brian Kelly is going to go to his house.
They'll probably go multiple times. They've probably been at games. Can you win those recruiting battles that he can get you involved in if you don't get out on the road? I don't know.
