Notes: From Rivals ($):
"I just had a gut feeling about it. CU offered me in November, but really for the last month or so, I have just been thinking about committing to them. I went to ASU yesterday and I loved ASU. ASU has nice weather and all this stuff but it just had a different feel than CU.

"A lot of the coaches at CU have been together for so long and they played ball for CU and they have CU in their blood so it just felt right. I also realize that there are not many places in the United States like Colorado and I just love it here. I figured I might as well enjoy another four or five years here."
