Mullen linebacker likes Colorado State

After hearing they didn't do enough to recruit the state of Colorado for the Class of 2010, the Colorado State Rams are wasting no time looking at the best of the Centennial State and offering scholarships.

Denver Mullen High School's Brady Daigh holds a scholarship offer from the Rams. Daigh is a 6-foot-2, 220-pound inside linebacker with a 4.7 time in the 40-yard dash and a 3.0 grade point average in the classroom. Daigh said he is looking for a place where he can use his brains and brawn over the next four years.

"I want to find a place that will have good academics that will open doors for me once I am done playing," he said. "I want a team that competes every year. I want a place that fits my style of play where I can get on the field early."

Daigh has been named All-Conference twice for Mullen, which won the state Class 5-A title last season. Daigh's contribution to that effort includes 127 tackles and two sacks.

"I think I fill holes very well," Daigh said. "I deliver the blow at the end of the run. Coaches tell me I have great instincts and I am a very physical player."

With a year until he can sign a National Letter of Intent, Daigh is taking his time on the recruiting front, but is making his presence felt at Junior Days at Colorado, Nebraska and Colorado State, which he attended recently. He also hopes to attend a Kansas State Junior Day in the spring. The effort has helped him to familiarize himself with Colorado State - thus far the only school to offer him a scholarship.

"I went up for Junior Day and I got a good feel from the coaches," Daigh said of his trop to Fort Collins. "They have a bunch o new facilities and that looked really nice and a new indoor practice facility. I know what I am looking to major is Business and they have a good business school, so that helps. They run a 4-3, which I think will work well for me. The defense looks real good. I am looking forward to going up to one of their spring practices to see what they are about."

In addition to his Junior Day destinations, Daigh said he may also visit Utah and is hearing from Wyoming. However, given his upbringing in Colorado, he thinks he will likely end up in state.

"My two schools are CU and CSU so I'd like to go to one of those I think," he said. "I have no clear favorite right now."
