Didn't know much about Colorado CB Chidobe Awuzie till I popped in tape this am. Now he's one of my favorites. Plays CB like a Mike LB!
Where do all the teams in the Pac-12 fall in Phil Steele's national ranking of the most "experienced" two-deeps?
You know Christian McCaffrey, Josh Rosen and the Pac-12's biggest names heading into 2016. But who are the fringe players that will need to take a huge step forward this year for each team?
The latest defensive triplets to be featured are Colorado's, as the Buffaloes are ranked ninth and could go even higher if their defense improves more.
Lytle, an ESPN 300 quarterback, is an important commitment for the Buffaloes, who currently have little depth at the position.

Colorado scored big on the recruiting trail Tuesday, as ESPN 300 quarterback Tyler Lytle announced his commitment to the Buffaloes. Lytle is the nation's No. 296 prospect and No. 14 pocket passer. He is the second ESPN 300 prospect to commit to Colorado in this class, joining OLB Jon Van Diest. They would be the first ESPN 300 prospects to sign with Colorado since the 2012 recruiting class, when Yuri Wright, an ESPN 150 prospect, signed.
Colorado doesn't have the worst quarterback-running back-receiver troika in the Pac-12, but the group certainly has room to grow.
Lubbock, Texas, and Berkeley, California, are worlds apart, but the offense Webb, a Texas Tech transfer, will inherit at Cal is very familiar.
The Buffaloes hope Bryce Bobo can pick up where Nelson Spruce left off as a key weapon in Colorado's offense.
There are the familiar faces like Stanford's Christian McCaffrey, and then there are newcomers like Oregon quarterback Dakota Prukop. Who are the Pac-12's other most important people?
Colorado has endured a lot of losing since entering the Pac-12, but led by Chidobe Awuzie and a roster full of upperclassmen the time to rise is now.
The Conference of Quarterbacks has seen much of its talent depart. There's plenty of questions and potential left over.
If Colorado gets a decisive edge in quarterback play with veteran starter Sefo Liufau, they'd have a chance for a major upset.

Colorado plans to take senior QB Sefo Liufau to Pac-12 media days, -- barring any rehabilitation setback-- which confirms the expectation he will be healthy enough to play this season. That's big for the Buffaloes, who suffered a blow when Texas Tech transfer Davis Webb changed his mind and opted to go to California. Liufau suffered a Lisfranc injury against USC late last season, an injury that can be slow to heal. With Webb on hand, Liufau had the option to redshirt. Now Colorado, which is eyeballing a move up in Pac-12's South Division, believes the going-on 4-year starter will be good to go.

Ranked the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the ESPN 300, recruit Tate Martell has narrowed his list to Ohio State and four Pac-12 teams.
Most people aren't concerned about who a team's backup quarterback is -- that is, until te starter gets hurt. So what's the backup plan in the Pac-12?
