Here's my take on it


Coach Dorrell is smart.

He probably tells them something like this:

"If you weren't getting the playing time you really want and not reaching your full potential, it would not be in your best interest to go to another high profile recruiting school like yours. Other 4 and 5 star players are coming in constantly thinking they'll play right away. It could be in your best interest to come to the University of Colorado where we are on the verge of turning it around. We need players at your position. You can come in and compete for playing time immediately. We make no promises of playing time other than you get a fair opportunity for evaluation and if you prove yourself, you will play".

Kids that have been in school at big time programs are looking for honest adults and a legit opportunity. CU is reaching to become at least mid-range competitive and of course it's a great school, campus and a fun league to play in.

Dorrell's no BS, low key approach is no doubt refreshing to a player who has seen high ego coaching staffs. Those kids see more talent at their previous school than they actually need with the knowledge that much more is coming in.
