Berglund talks about decision

He has Colorado blinds in his room, his parents use a Colorado checkbook and there are Colorado license plates on the car. The Berglunds are definitely Buffaloes fans.
Now Brock Berglund is a Colorado commit as well.
Berglund, a three-star dual-threat quarterback from Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian, has given his commitment to Colorado over UCLA, Utah, Kansas and many other programs that offered.
"I've lived in Colorado since I was born," Berglund said. "Colorado has always been the frontrunner but it's switched around here in the last month, that's when it became confusing.
"Until then it has always been Colorado. Coach (Eric) Kiesau, the offensive coordinator there, does a great job with quarterbacks and his relationship with me is really good and I'm confident that program is turning in the right direction now."
UCLA was considered a favorite for Berglund but after further evaluation in the last few weeks after the Provo NIKE Camp, Colorado made a move up the charts and finally landed his pledge.
Colorado's move to the Pac-10 played a big factor in Berglund's decision. Location helped but he said it was not a major influence at the end.
"Going to the Pac-10 conference, they're going to get really good recruiting classes here in 2011 and 2012," Berglund said. "They can come in and be a real competitor.
"When it really comes down to it, I've been up there a couple hundred times. It's 40 minutes from my house. That didn't necessarily make my decision because I evaluated every school without location being a part of it. It really has nothing to do with home but it turns out the place I wanted to go was right by my house but I'm not going there because it's close to home."
Rivals.com rates Berglund, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect, as the No. 13 dual-threat quarterback nationally and the third-best player in the Colorado preseason top 20 of 2011. He threw for 2,226 yards with 30 touchdowns and four interceptions last season. He also rushed for 890 yards and 14 scores.
