Blake Behrens
Offensive Line
Pheonix, Ariz.
Brophy Prep
6-3, 275

In His Own Words: "I have great technique so even if guys are bigger or stronger than me I can get the best of them. I watch a lot of film and I am constantly in the weight room."

Why Colorado? "I love Coach Hawk's enthusiasm. The thing I like about CU is that they are saying they are going after more athletic lineman. Not those big 6-5, 6-6, 340-pounders. I will never be one of those guys. I will probably get to 6-4, 290 and be lean and quick. That is what they want, so we see eye-to-eye."

Other Offers: Boise State, Colorado State, Miami, Oregon State, Utah, Washington State

Recruiter: Brian Cabral

HS Coach Scooter Molander: "As a sophomore, he played offensive line and did a great job. Last year, we just said the kid is so big and physical, let’s make him a defensive lineman too. For the last three years we’ve run a college type practice where you play at one position. We only had four kids that went both ways this year. Anyway, for a guy to play both ways he’s got to be a heckuva player. He did a great job on the o-line for three years and then played very well on the defensive line this year. He's a real strong kid. He just physically manhandles people. He’s a very good drive blocker, a good pass blocker."
