It is hard to guess on incoming freshman as you can look great in high school and end up average at best in college. Same with the jump from college to pro. How often do you see can't miss players not live up to the hype. That being said Peter Wise could be a beast.

Nichols, Schmid, Woodley, Moore and Lipton-Martinez are rated the highest by 247 Sports, but there are several others who seem capable of contributing immediately, particularly at the skills positions where freshmen are most likely to make an impact. Taylor, Moore, Filacouris and Allen all have impressive credentials at running back where the Lions need a replacement for Alan Watson who is graduating. One intriguing newcomer is the speedy kick off returner from Nevada, who racked up huge yardage last year and will join Wainwright, Rose and perhaps Gabriel as kick off and punt returners. The two incoming quarterbacks have solid stats, but in my opinion they are unlikely to move ahead of the three sophomores who already know the offense. Watch for the two Seton Hall players, Warren and Kaminski, to make an impact.

Where is Geraghty, the very excellent freshman DE? I did not see him on the Spring roster. And where is Jake? He hasn't blogged in several weeks

Old Lion, I agree, the CU site doesn't show any updates to last year's roster.
Out of curiosity, I looked at Geraghty's twitter page, it still shows all of his CU
football stuff. I'm also curious about Petlansky, as a freshman QB he played more
than the others, but he doesn't seem to have played in the spring game.

Petlansky did play, but has moved to TE

Jake has been writing plenty. But it's been for his real job.

Hopefully he will get his priorities straight again by fall.

Have also been wondering about Geraghty. He is not listed on spring roster (list on Twitter, I think, not on CU website which is lagging, wonder why). That's my only question mark at this point, but we should still have good​ depth at good depth at DE.

A couple of kids left program. Two left football. One leaving school. One still listed OFG on injury. Good kids always missed, but squad still very strong and w/2017 kids competition at level not seen in past. Things always change, but could be 12+ 2016 starters. Some really good upperclassmen too, especially on lines.

Heard a couple kids left.
Biggest pluses of spring were OL, WR and Anders Hill on offense
Biggest on defense were young CBs, young DL and Jake Young

Coaches are saying incoming class is stronger/deeper then current Fr and will fill gaps to have a great 2-3 deep in near future.

Expect Fr RBs and LBs to get a shot to move up depth chart early.

Heard there is a little edge because too many people on periphery of program are happy with last seasons 3 wins and close losses. Direct quote "we lost to 3 worst teams we played, no one is locker room is happy about last year"

Don't know when it will happen but can promise this staff is not going to let this team just become competitive and then relax.

Anonymous and Lion Fan, thanks for the updates. Sometimes we forget how hard it is to go from being a big fish in a small pond to the reverse. And, being in a challenging academic environment, some student/athletes will shuffle priorities. Best wishes to them.

For record, didn't mean to imply kids leaving did so for grades. Other factors at play. Don't pay attention to class strength arguments. Different types of classes, and really not close regardless of external talk/hype. One was a "rebuild" class, one more a "fill-holes" class. Right way to go so credit to coaches. Which will have bigger impact? All guess work now. This year we'll get read on how good 2016 class really is, and probably not till next year on how good 2017 is. Not expecting many 2017 kids to break into heavy playing roles mostly because it's not as necessary this year. But there are always a few surprises and early injuries can change the picture fast. Only exception may be at RB because big need for someone to separate themselves. Impact surprises more likely from "very" motivated upperclassmen and a few 2016 kids finally getting "shots' this year. 2 year talent rebuild means age not major factor and things inverted for a while, so upperclassmen holding positions are really proving themselves. Increased competition means no one is a safe starter (except Hill) so things unlikely to be as static throughout season. All this bodes very well for future.
