    2016 Colorado State Football Recruiting Class Overview

    The Rams spread around the prospects to almost all the positions providing depth for the near future. Big on the JUCO transfers, there’s enough instant depth to bring in more options this offseason, but there isn’t quite enough of a focus on one spot to assume a big boost right away from the high schoolers.

    The Class Is Heavy On …

    Linebacker. The Rams got speed and athleticism at outside linebacker, and now they have to beef them up. Hunter Donnelly can move well enough to get interest from Kansas State, while Colorado wanted safety-sized Isiah Pannunzio. These two are the best of a good lot on defense, while the offensive side spread around the wealth a bit with a little bit of something for every spot but tackle.

    The Star of the Class Is …

    RB Rashaad Boddie, 6-0, 221. QB Collin Hill might turn out to be the main man a few years from now, but it’s Boddie who got the interest from the bigger schools, getting love from Boise State, Utah and Oregon State in the process. He’s a thumper with a good burst in the open field.

    The Team’s Biggest 2016 Depth Chart Hole Is …

    Defensive line. The young reserves have to play a big role right away with the loss of all four starters up front. The class went with several JUCO transfers, but didn’t get a slew of options for the line for right away. It would be nice to get a 300-pound body to throw into the middle in a pinch, but there isn’t enough beef for the run D.
