Tuesday Buff Bites - Andre Simmons Targets Thursday Arrival Date!

Colorado_mediumBrooks: Simmons Targets Thursday -
Receiver Andre Simmons says all systems are `go' for a Thursday arrival, and offensive coordinator Eric Kiesau is keeping his fingers crossed.

Simmons says he will report "in-shape" and ready to go. It sounds like Coach Kiesau was a great source of inspiration for Andre throughout this process of trying to get qualified. It is still only a matter of time before we know if the Colorado Admissions Office will qualify Simmons...we need this one!!!

Colorado_mediumClarification on Will Jefferson | The Buffzone Blog
Kyle Ringo of the BDC clarifies his early post saying that the Buffs landed a 2009 wide receiver, Will Jefferson.

I was able to follow up today with a football program source about new wide receiver addition Will Jefferson, who told me this weekend that he was already admitted to CU and cleared by the NCAA eligibility center. I’m told none of that is true. He still has to be cleared by both. Part of the hold up on Jefferson gaining academic eligibility was him needing to take a summer school course at his high school. I’m told they are confident he will be cleared academically and they are excited to get him. Not sure if my source had fingers or toes crossed at the time.

Some Colorado Buffaloes basketball information in this period of all football, all the time:

Colorado men’s basketball coach Jeff Bzdelik reportedly offered a scholarship to 6-foot-6 shooting guard Alex Dragicevich during the spring. Since then, the offer list for the Northbrook (Ill.) North High star has swelled. CU’s competition now includes Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Xavier, Utah and others. Bzdelik can talk some "northsider" smack to Dragicevich. Bzdelik also grew up in suburban Chicago. His hometown of Mount Prospect is only about three or four miles from Northbrook. Another CU target, according to, is 6-9 Kevin Panzer, a forward at Mission Viejo (Calif.) Capistrano Valley. Panzer told recently that his top three is comprised of Colorado, Gonzaga and Pennsylvania. Yes, that’s Penn of the Ivy League. Evidently, Panzer wouldn’t have any trouble getting his transcript through the CU admissions office.
