Colorado football fans might be concerned the program has just three commitments in its 2015 class midway through June and hasn't received a new pledge in nearly two months.
But a look around the rest of the Pac-12 Conference and at CU's recent recruiting history shows it's nothing unusual.
At this point last year during his first year as coach in Boulder, Mike MacIntyre had just four commitments. He went on to gain eight more commitments prior to the start of the 2013 season, leaving fewer than 10 spots to fill in the 2014 class during the season and the recruiting intensive months of December and January.
In 2012, former coach Jon Embree had seven commitments in this point in the cycle.
The 2015 class is expected to number between 18-21 recruits at this point, but that range could change slightly between now and early February depending on any roster attrition.
CU is tied with Stanford and Washington for the fewest number of reported commitments in the Pac-12, which is hardly poor company. Arizona is the only team in the conference with a double-digit commitment total at 10.
It's likely Colorado coaches will extend more offers in the coming weeks once most of their summer football camp schedules have wrapped up and they have evaluated more prospects attending those camps. CU coaches are hosting camps at Mission Viejo, Calif., High School and at Redlands and Sacramento this weekend and have on-campus camps later this month and one more in mid-July.
Colorado is expected to have four scholarship quarterbacks on the roster this fall all of whom will have at least two years of eligibility remaining. The group includes sophomore starter Sefo Liufau, sophomore Jordan Gehrke, junior Jaleel Awini, a transfer from Air Force and freshman Cade Apsay.
CU is also expected to have as many as three walk-on quarterbacks this fall.
Despite those numbers and the fact all of those players have plenty of eligibility remaining, CU coaches would like to add a quarterback in the 2015 class to develop more long-term depth at the position.
It's unclear whether Awini will wind up under center or at wide receiver ultimately and coaches never count on walk-ons earning spots in the depth chart, which means MacIntyre and has staff will have three quarterbacks on the roster in August whom they recruited to play the position.
Colorado's three commitments are all rated as three-star prospects by Rivals.com. They are linebacker N.J. Falo of Sacramento, defensive end T.J. Fehoko of Salt Lake City and offensive lineman Dillon Middlemiss from Pomona High School in Arvada.
