The Buffaloes received a verbal commitment today from Valor Christian Quarterback Brock Berglund. Berglund, of Highlands Ranch, chose Colorado over UCLA, Utah, Kansas and Kansas State. Most thought that Berglund would be heading west to Westwood, but Colorado was able to keep this in-state prospect home, just days after losing Arvada offensive lineman Marc Mustoe to Coach Neuheisel and the Bruins.
CO QB Brock Berglund announces for Colorado, claims he almost committed to UCLA, then had a change of heart. Big pick up for CU.
Rivals.com rates Berglund, a three-star recruit, as the No. 13 dual-threat quarterback in the 2011 class. He is the first three-star in the current Rivals rankings. This is a big pick up for the Buffs and, along with Nick Sherry, should finish Colorado's 2011 quarterback class.
Brock Berglund finished his junior season with just under 2,500 yards passing, 30 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also rushed for just over 1,000 yards with 14 touchdowns. He says he can bench 260-pounds, squat 365 and has a 34-inch vertical jump.
Two seasons into his career, Berglund has already compiled nearly 5,000 yards of total offense.
Berglund plans to major in business or film and reports a 3.2 core GPA. He is scheduled to take the ACT on June 12.
Berglund: "I'd say I'm mobile and can throw on the run. I can move well in the pocket and read the defenses well. I feel like I can diagnose any defense out there.
"I want to work on everything. I'm still trying to get stronger and faster and am working on my footwork too."
