CU finds most recruits staying loyal

The support for Colorado football has definitely wavered in this trying season, but the coaching staff can count on one area where it hasn’t. Its verbal commitments for the 2010 recruiting class are still solidly behind the 3-6 Buffaloes.

All except one.

Columbine High’s Danny Spond said Thursday he is still committed but “will open the door to other schools.”

“I’m a little concerned about how stuff’s been going a little bit, to be honest,” said Spond, a quarterback who is listed as an athlete on recruiting sites. “In the beginning of the season I had a lot of high hopes for them. I know a lot of people did, with the size of the offense and the second year they’ve all been playing together. The year they’re having has got me a little worried about their whole chemistry and how things are going.”

Spond said he’s “anxious” about the Buffs’ final three games. If CU (2-3, Big 12 North) wins at Iowa State on Saturday, Kansas State loses to Missouri and Nebraska loses at Kansas, all distinct possibilities, Colorado would be tied for first in the loss column.

A loss Saturday, however, would give coach Dan Hawkins his fourth losing record in four seasons.
