Along with Crawley, Yuri Wright was CU's other highly touted cornerback recruit in the 2012 class. On Tuesday, MacIntyre said the Buffs hope Wright doesn't make any big plays this year.
"Right now we're planning on redshirting him unless people get hurt," MacIntyre said.
MacIntyre said it was a mutual decision between him and Wright.
"He only played like one year of football in high school and he needs to get bigger and stronger," MacIntyre said. "I've done that before, redshirted sophomores that weren't quite ready physically. You give them another year and you have three great years out of them."
Wright made six starts a year ago as part of CU's young secondary and MacIntyre is excited to see how good the New Jersey product will be in the future.
"I think he's going to be really, really good," MacIntyre said. "He's got a great future."
