Chandler (Ariz.) defensive back Harold Bernard was supposed to visit Colorado this past weekend but the talented safety suffered a serious injury in his game last Friday and the visit was moved to later this month.
Bernard, 6-1, 170 pounds is one of the elite safeties in the West region. He has good size and speed, plays physical and is a sure tackler. Scholarship offers have come in from a host of schools including Stanford, Colorado, Colorado State, Nevada, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State and most recently Utah.
In Chander's 20-13 win over Phoenix (Ariz.) Desert Vista on Friday, Bernard broke his leg (fibula) and could be out the rest of the season.
"We're just praying as a family and that is keeping us from thinking the worst," Bernard mother Sonia said. "We're just praying for Harold's emotional and physical growth. Right now, he needs a lot of encouragement and that's what were hoping for."
As for the visit to Colorado, that will now be at the end of this month (Sept. 28.)
"He's going to visit Stanford this weekend (Sept. 21)," Sonia said. "Colorado will be the following week and that is all that is set up right now. Utah just offered, that's his most recent offer but we don't have any other visit plans as of now."
