The Colorado Buffs 2011 Recruiting Class Paulay Asiata and K.T. Tu'umalo
Paulay Asiata: the highest ranked of a trio of Hawaiians the Buffs snagged this year. He's a big boy, coming in at 6'5" and 295 lbs, and he looks like he's going to be an Offensive Guard or Tackle. He played at Guard and is quite a road-grater. He plays mean, finishes his blocks and (as Embree mentioned about all of these prospects) looks to me like he could contribute pretty early on. You've got to love these big Polynesian and Samoan guys. With Cabral and Tuiasosopo on staff together, we should be bringing in a couple guys from the Islands every February.
K.T. Tu'umalo: The last of the Hawaiians, K.T. is fast and flies to the ball. He is a Linebacker that is just as comfortable in coverage as he is in Blitzing and stuffing the run. He is only 6'2", 200 lbs right now, but he should pack on at least a few lbs going into his first fall. After a season or two, he could easily be working his way into CU Linebacker lore. His highlight tape is fun to watch because he makes plays all over the field.
