Te’Jay Brown


6-2, 260 pounds

St. Petersburg (Fla.) St. Petersburg

Brown is an icon in his hometown and says every time that someone talks about St. Petersburg High School, they point to him as the cover person. He’s a strong force on the defensive line who benches 350 pounds. During his senior season he collected 75 tackles and 10 sacks. Brown also held offers from UAB, Cincinnati and Louisville.

Joe Brown


6-3, 215 pounds

Wichita (Kan.) Bishop Carroll

This Brown looks to be a steal at the tight end position and could possibly be Kory Sperry 2.0. A very versatile player who plays tight end, slot receiver as well as fullback at his high school in Wichita, Coach Fairchild has told him that he may play a similar role at CSU. There is also a chance that Brown will greyshirt next season, depending on how many scholarships the Rams have available. He also had an offer from Missouri State.

Lou Greenwood


6-1, 174 pounds

Conroe (Texas) Conroe

Arguably the highest touted prospect for the Rams in the class of 2009. An all-purpose back who could easily play running back or wide receiver. He has a great chance of returning kickoffs next season with John Mosure. In three years at Conroe High School he rushed for 2,173 yards and scored 33 touchdowns. Greenwood also had offers from Georgia Tech, Houston, Iowa State, Ole Miss, Syracuse and Baylor.

Jon Eastman


6-2, 210 pounds

Snow College (Utah)

One of two quarterback commitments the Rams have this season is originally from Fort Morgan. This past season he led Snow College to the top of the Mountain Bowl (NJCAA National Championship Game) before falling to Butler Community College in overtime. He has 11 siblings, seven of which played quarterback during their football careers.

Nico Rainieri


6-2, 195 pounds

Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips

Uncle Nico, Colorado State’s other quarterback commitment comes from Orlando, Florida. Has great pocket presence, an incredible arm, outstanding accuracy and can use his legs to scramble for huge gains when needed. He was a Florida All-State selection this year while passing for 2,500 yards, 26 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. He also had offers from Central Florida, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee State and UAB.
