Visit schedule for Abele excludes CSU

As the recruiting season begins to get into full swing, the Colorado State Rams' chances with Irvine, Calif. offensive lineman Nik Abele may be dwindling. The 6-foot-6, 250-pound lineman from Irvine High has nine scholarship offers and has set visits or will set visits to five colleges - all from Bowl Championship Series schools.

Abele, whom ranks Abele as the 64th best prospect from the talent rich Golden State, was in Boulder this month for the Colorado-Iowa State game and enjoyed his time there.

"It was pretty cool," Abele said. "It was the first place I went to. I liked the area out there. I liked the team and they really fed you a lot, which was cool."
