  Draft Scout by Conference

  At the time of Brady Russell's last haircut, he was a student at Fossil Ridge High School who was hoping for a shot at eventually playing Division I football. It's been about six years since Russell cut his hair, he said, and his growth as a player and as a person might be as impressive as the growth of his long locks. Entering his fifth season with the Buffaloes, the former walk-on has become one of the better tight ends in the Pac-12 Conference and a leader in a crowded room. His focus this spring, however, has been on getting healthy.

"It's been very humbling," he said of recovering from a leg injury that caused him to miss most of the shortened 2020 season. "I think it's been good for me in the long run, because it's easy to get ahead of yourself and think...I don't want to say I thought too highly of myself, but this kind of brought me back down another level and made me feel human again, if you will, and kind of grounded me and made me realize what my identity is in." Russell, who joined CU as a walk-on in 2017 and earned a scholarship in 2018, became a regular starter in 2019. He caught 23 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns that season. Last year, Russell, who will be a junior in the fall, was looking to make a bigger impact and caught five passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in the season opener. The next week, he was injured on CU's fourth offensive play at Stanford and didn't play the rest of the season. - Daily Camera
