Colorado RB Brian Lockridge Requests Move To Secondary

Current Colorado Buffalo senior running back Brian Lockridge has requested that he be moved from running back to cornerback according to B.G. Brooks of CUBuffs.com, the official site of the Colorado athletic department.

After requesting to be moved this morning, Lockridge was already practicing with the defensive backs. Lockridge has had zero carries through the first four games of the season, even though the running game has struggled. The Buffaloes are down to basically three healthy cornerbacks at the moment, but it remains to be seen if Lockridge can pick up the schemes and coverage's quickly enough to make any sort of contribution in his senior season. 

"I wanted to contribute; the last couple of weeks I've been on the sideline doing nothing - and that included the special teams," Lockridge said. "I just brought it to their (the coaches') attention - if you guys can use me, I'm a senior with nine weeks left. If I can do anything to contribute to the team, that would be great."

Lockridge's first day on defense probably was what he and his coaches expected: "Horrible technique," he said. "But my recovery speed helped me out."

And his learning speed, he believes, also will help absorb Brown's schemes before CU opens its Pac-12 Conference schedule on Saturday against Washington State (1:30 p.m., Folsom Field, FCS Pacific).

"Realistically it is (a lot to learn)," Lockridge admitted. "But I can do it. I have one class, so I can spend the majority of the day with the coaches and studying. Before Friday, I guarantee you I'll have it down."
