Colorado Recruiting Class of 2020

CU Class of 2020 … One commitment

Recruits by position … Offensive linemen: 1

Recruits are from … Colorado: 1



Carson Lee – OL

Just the facts … Committed February 2nd … Lee is a 6’4″, 300-pound offensive lineman from Cherry Creek high school in Greenwood Village, Colorado Rivals bio 247 Sports bio

 What others say about Lee … Lee is rated as a three-star prospect by both Rivals and 247 Sports. Rivals has Lee listed as the No. 26 offensive guard in the nation, while 247 Sports has Lee as the No. 31 offensive guard nationally, the No. 7 prospect overall out of the state of Colorado, and the No. 773 player in the country. As a junior, Lee helped Cherry Creek rush for 2,043 yards and 28 touchdowns in 14 games, and was named first-team all-state by Colorado Prep Report.

Lee had other offers from … over a dozen other schools – all from Power Five conferences. From the Pac-12, Lee had offers from both Arizona schools, Washington State and Utah, with other offers from schools like Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Missouri. Lee was reportedly being heavily recruited by Nebraska, but chose to stay in-state instead.

In his own words … From his commitment tweet: “I would like to thank all of the coaches who believed in my abilities. With that being said, I am proud to announce that I will be representing my home state and playing college ball at the University of Colorado. I can’t wait to live out my life long dream of being a Buff!”

“I am going to be the biggest recruiter at the University of Colorado,” Lee told “I am going to do my best to bring in the top guys in the state … I feel like I am going to bring an attitude to Boulder that they have been missing. When I line up from the guy across from me, I want to leave him thinking he never wants to play this game again.”

Here is a link to Lee’s junior season highlights.

  1. ep, does your wife, who you’ve said has relatives way out there in huckster land know that you write this stuff about that bunch? You sure do nail it with those descriptions of the inhabitants of that state.
    When I used to travel that state on business, I remember being in the local breakfast joint in some town like McCook (I might say though the food was great) and listening to a bunch of those guys sitting at tables and hearing them say stuff like……..: “well Devaney says……..or Osborne says……. “and man when they would then divulge it, it was the Gospel emanating from Lincoln. Same thing next morning in some breakfast joint in Broken Bow, North Platte or some other god forsaken town in that miserable Red clothed state.

    Boy oh boy do I hope Tucker and the new team put it to them in Boulder this coming fall. I have a feeling that those huckster fans think that grim faced Scotty will have it all turned around by next Sept. Wouldn’t two in a row be great over that bunch, after all CU has been through the last decade?

    1. They probably do now even though I’m sure they had an inkling. Might not be able to back to Linkin (alligator tears)
      We must have crossed paths sometime in the land of the “Good Life.” I was working in Torrington WY with some other Buffs during that 1990 NC season. We would always go across the state line to Henry Nebraska to chow down at the Stock Feeder’s Steakhouse to catch the Tom Osborne show on the tube. It was a small mom and pop place run by an ol’ guy named Ole who had the place bathed in red and would have rather been shot than turn off the Osborne show even with our razzing. Each episode they would show the same 3 or 4 highlight plays at least 5 times each as we hooted and hollered at the TV. We never crossed the line with Ole and remained friends as we didnt want to be banned from the best filet’s on the planet and a decent selection of single malt that you couldnt find for 200 miles

  2. I think Murray was the best commit to date for this class but I was getting worried that Mel was going after DLs like MM went for DBs.
    Now we have Carson Lee who is an OL and just as good…especially since he is a home boy and turned down the hideous hucksters…unlike the over rated McCaffey kid and the TE whatever his name is.
    Hey TE kid…..if you signed up for 4 years in stinkin linkin before MM was booted its hard to blame you but there is still time to come back.
    Speaking of truck stop land have you ever wondered why Huckster coaches are so grumpy? No need to point out Pelini but I have never seen Frost…well once…crack a half smile. Even Osborne was trying to be Tom Landry.
    Its my opinion Riley lost on purpose so he could get the hell out of there. After getting his corn creamed by the Buffs again I am hoping Frost succeeds to the point he goes pro and leaves all those over age over weight farmers crying in their gravy and skoal.
