ESPN: QB/Ath Danny Spond Has Re-Opened His Recruitment, De-Commits From Colorado

New, 17 comments

Something that should not come as a surprise, 4-star Colorado prep QB/Athlete Danny Spond has re-opened his recruitment, de-committing from the Colorado Buffaloes according to ESPN.com.

A three-star athlete, Danny Spond of Columbine (Littleton, Colo.) has withdrawn his Class of 2010 commitment to Colorado.

Spond is now considering the Buffs, Stanford, Wyoming and Duke.

He was Colorado's first pledge back in April, but then the Buffs suffered a disappointing 2009 season and the coaching staff was narrowly retained.

A 6-foot-2, 220-pound prospect, Spond has been recruited as a quarterback, linebacker or tight end.

Spond accounted for 883 yards and 14 touchdowns through the first six games of his senior season before suffering a severe head-injury. He is now back in school full-time.

Spond has not eliminated Colorado from consideration but due to the way the Buffs season ended up, he decided that he needed to reconsider his options on where he will be most effectively used.

Although his decision is mostly due to the Buffs on the field performance, Colorado has also received two other verbals from quarterbacks - Nick Hirschman and Munchie Legaux. Spond has stated that he is willing to play any position but would also like a shot at quarterback.
