Mullen linebacker has CSU in front

The summer camp season is keeping Denver Mullen High School linebacker Brady Daigh busy. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder spent this week at Colorado State and will be in Boulder tomorrow before headed to Kansas for a pair of camps later in the week.

Daigh was an All-State linebacker for Mullen last year after picking up 83.5 tackles. He holds scholarship offers from North Dakota, Colorado State, Wyoming and potentially San Diego State, which he said told him they may offer soon.

Daigh spent the weekend at the Colorado State came and called it a good experience, saying he got a feel for the Colorado State coaching staff and, in particular, defensive coordinator Larry Kerr.

"He is an up-tempo guy, which I like," Daigh said. "He likes to work with you on what you are doing right and if you are doing something wrong, you had better quit."

Thus far the Rams are sitting high on Daigh's list, who said he is feeling more at home at Colorado State.

"I am comfortable there because it is your home state, you are used to it and the environment," he said. "I really like CSU a lot. I think they are on the top of my list because of the offer, the coaches, I really like Coach Kerr and Coach Fairchild. They are one of my favorite schools right now."

While Daigh was in Fort Collins this week, it is far from his only camp of the week. He will be in Boulder Tuesday for a camp, followed by a camp at the University of Kansas on Friday and Kansas State to end the week. This will be the third time Daigh has been to Lawrence.

Conference realignment has been at the top of most sports pages over the past couple weeks and Daigh said there will be effects of realignment on his recruiting. He said. He liked the fact CU moved to the Pac-10, pointing out several former Mullen Mustangs currently play in that loop. He also said he believes the Mountain West Conference's addition of Boise State makes them a stronger contender for a BCS bid.

In addition the Colorado State offer, Daigh holds offers from Wyoming and a new one from North Dakota. He said he hasn't talked to Wyoming much lately and is hoping to get to one of their camps in July. He said he hasn't been in Laramie since the beginning of last year, but hopes to make it back this season. The North Dakota offer came recently and may have been the result of a a teammate having committed to play for the Bison.
