Well, when it rains, it pours folks. It's been quite an up and down week for us Bronco fans, hasn't it? First, we lose our beloved DC Marcel Yates to Arizona, but he is quickly replaced by our even MORE beloved Andy Avalos. Then, on Thursday, we lose long-time QB commit Micah Wilson to Mizzou.
Today, just minutes ago, 4-star RB Damarea Crockett announced his decommittment from the Broncos via Twitter.
Not something we want to hear less than 2 weeks before signing day, especially since he was the first 4-star recruit at RB we have ever had. He committed to Mizzou as I was writing this article, following Micah Wilson there. Honestly, it was surprising to me that Wilson's relationship was that integral to Crockett's commitment. Either way, we wish Crockett all the best in his endeavors at Missouri.
Now, the coaches have their work cut out for them, replacing two of the most important positions in any recruiting class. Fortunately, Mahone has reaffirmed his commitment to the Broncos.

The two running back I believe the coaches will focus on are Alexander Mattison and Tyler Tutt. We'll keep you guys informed of the happenings. Go Broncos!
