BOULDER | The pipeline of football talent from Aurora prep programs to the University of Colorado got stronger Saturday.
Four-star offensive lineman Tim Lynott — a senior-to-be at Regis Jesuit High School — announced his verbal commitment to coach Mike MacIntyre’s Buffaloes, ending a lengthy recruiting process that saw him receive double-digit Division I scholarship offers.
The physical 6-foot-4, 295-pounder — who had narrowed down his list to five schools, all in the Pac-12 Conference — announced his decision via Twitter with the message: “I’m proud to say that I’ve decided to stay home and play football for the University of Colorado! #GoBuffs” along with his picture with a Colorado No. 56 jersey on.
Lynott became the third high-profile football player from an Aurora school to commit to Colorado, joining Class of 2014 signees Terran Hasselbach — a defensive end and good friend who played with Lynott at Regis Jesuit when the Raiders went 9-2 last season — and Cherokee Trail safety Evan White.
Lynott also had reported offers from Arizona State, Colorado State, Kansas State, Miami, Nevada, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah State, Washington State and Wyoming.
Another Regis Jesuit product, wide receiver Robert Orban, is currently on Colorado’s roster.

Don’t take Fr. Krieger’s math class, or you won’t graduate….
I am so happy these Regis boys are staying here to go to Boulder and play football in Colorado. It’s time we show some Colorado pride instead of losing all the talent we have here!
