Ca'Ron Baham, DB, Marrero, La. (John Ehret HS): Hailing from the same high school that produced former Buffs Kordell Stewart, Dalton Simmons and Thaddeus Washington, Baham is an exceptional athlete who starred at receiver, quarterback and defensive back in high school. While playing quarterback, the former Missouri commit tore the ACL in his right knee on the fourth play of his senior season. Could be the fastest player in this class. "This young man can fly," head coach Mike MacIntyre said.
Beau Bisharat, RB, Carmichael, Calif. (Jesuit HS): A four-star athlete who was highly recruited around the country (even national champion Alabama wanted him), Bisharat is a powerful runner. During his prep career, he ran for 4,130 yards and 43 touchdowns and caught 57 passes for 834 yards. "He'll be a guy that I believe will help us immediately next year," MacIntyre said. "He's a big, physical, athletic, hard-nosed running back."
Ronnie Blackmon, CB, Atlanta (Westlake HS): Starred at corner, receiver, punter and punt returner for Westlake. On film, he has shown great instincts in coverage and the ability to go get the ball. During his senior year, he generated 10 turnovers (seven interceptions, three fumble recoveries). As a punt returner, he averaged 18.7 yards and scored a touchdown. He also had five touchdown receptions on offense. "He's a quick, athletic, explosive young man with a lot of ability to make big plays," MacIntyre said.
Kabion Ento, WR, Pine Bluff, Ark. (East Central C.C.): Ento signed with the Buffs back in December, but officially joined this class on Wednesday. He played two years at ECCC, so he has two years to play (as well as a redshirt option). This past season, he earned first-team South All-State honors, catching 38 passes for 607 yards and eight touchdowns. Was a sprinter and jumper on his high school track and field team. "You'll be excited about watching this guy get in the end zone this year," MacIntyre said.
Johnny Huntley, WR, Plantation, Fla. (South Plantation HS): Another big receiver, Huntley was rated as the No. 61 overall prospect in talent-rich Florida. He caught 55 passes for 940 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season and was named his team's most valuable player. "He is a big, athletic young man," MacIntyre said. "He is very, very fast and he can go up and get (the ball) in a crowd. He'll be a big target for our quarterbacks."
Akil Jones, LB, San Jose, Calif. (Valley Christian HS): Played at the same high school where current Buffs Jay MacIntyre and Ryan Severson played. As a senior, he had 86 tackles, 30 tackles for loss and 13 sacks. Buffs like his ability to play inside, but also to rush the passer, where he utilizes his speed. He's a sprinter on his track team. "He's very explosive, very fast," MacIntyre said.
Anthony Julmisse, WR, Plantation, Fla. (South Plantation HS): A teammate of Huntley's, Julmisse is an intriguing play-maker who could be used as a running back and receiver, as the Buffs did with Donovan Lee this past year. Julmisse ran for 672 yards on 81 carries (8.3 average) and had 360 receiving yards. He scored 12 touchdowns on offense and two as a returner. "Anthony is a dynamic athlete," MacIntyre said. "He can do a lot of different things for us."
Drew Lewis, LB, Sammamish, Wash. (Coffeyville C.C.): As a three-star recruit coming out of high school in 2014, Lewis signed with Washington. He redshirted the 2014 season there, but was dismissed from the team last summer. He landed at Coffeyville, where he broke his thumb early in the season, but finished strong in the second half of the year. Lewis has three years to play. "He'll play our inside, jack linebacker," MacIntyre said. "He's physical, he has range."
Chance Lytle, OL, San Antonio, Texas (Churchill HS): Lytle started two years at tackle in high school and an all-area selection in San Antonio. As a senior, he allowed just one sack and was penalized just four times. "He is a big, wide-shouldered young man from Texas; very athletic, and we're really excited about Chance Lytle," MacIntyre said.
Pookie Maka, OLB, Salt Lake City, Utah (Cottonwood HS): A first-team all-region choice this past year, he registered eight sacks, forced four fumbles and broke up seven passes. He also blocked two field goals. "You can see his speed off the edge," MacIntyre said. "He always plays with a relentless passion and effort, and Pookie is going to be a really excellent player for us."
Sam Noyer, QB, Beaverton, Ore. (Beaverton HS): A dual-threat quarterback with a great arm, Noyer was rated the top quarterback prospect (and No. 4 overall) in Oregon. As a senior, he completed 62.6 percent of his passes for 2,801 yards and 28 touchdowns. He also ran for 366 yards and eight touchdowns. "The thing that impressed me so much with Sam is that the pocket doesn't have to be clean for him to make a play," MacIntyre said. "He can escape from the pocket and go make plays."
Colby Pursell, OL, Valencia, Calif. (Hart HS): A two-year starter and first-team all-league performer, Pursell helped his team average over 150 yards rushing, and he allowed just two sacks. He was called for just one penalty. "He is a guy that has just kept maturing," MacIntyre said. "When we first saw him, he was 260; now he's 295, and he is put together. I call him the road grader."
Derrion Rakestraw, WR, Woodstock, Ga. (Sequoyah HS): A big and athletic receiver who could challenge for playing time immediately. He caught 42 passes for 659 yards (15.7 average) and six touchdowns as a senior. Rakestraw also returned punts and kicks and had four interceptions on defense. "As he gets bigger and stronger, he's just going to get more and more explosive," MacIntyre said.
Terriek Roberts, DL/OL, Denver (South HS): Roberts has good size, but could add some weight to his 6-foot-6 frame. He's talented on the defensive and offensive sides of the ball, but has work to do to improve his skills in both areas. "He's kind of a hybrid lineman right now," MacIntyre said. "We're going to see if he's going to be a D-lineman or an O-lineman. It's going to be what he grows into here in the next 18 months."
Trey Udoffia, DB, Loomis, Calif. (Del Oro HS): Named the defensive MVP for the San Joaquin Section, he had 54 tackles, 12 pass breakups and four interceptions. He was also a talented receiver, and impressed MacIntyre with his athleticism on the basketball court. "Trey is a guy I believe can help us at corner this fall," MacIntyre said.
Hunter Vaughn, OL, Parker (Legend HS): The 6-foot-7 Vaughn is the tallest player in CU's class and has the frame to grow into a big tackle later in his career. He gave up just one sack and was flagged three times. "He's going to be an excellent, excellent left tackle that will make the quarterback feel very comfortable," MacIntyre said. "He just needs to put on more weight, and he's doing that."
Davis Webb, QB, Prosper, Texas (Texas Tech): Webb played 23 games at Texas Tech, throwing for 5,557 yards, 46 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. He was the Holiday Bowl MVP in 2013, leading Tech to a victory over Arizona State. He will graduate from Tech in May and have one year to play. "Davis has an exceptional NFL arm," MacIntyre said. "He can throw it, he can read defenses."
Juwann Winfree, WR, Englewood, N.J. (Coffeyville C.C.): Winfree played the 2014 season at Maryland, catching 11 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns. At Coffeyville this past season, he caught 55 passes for 837 yards and seven scores. "He's a big, athletic playmaker," MacIntyre said. "Juwann Winfree will be a guy that will help us this fall."
