Colorado has already offered Roderick Eason and the Las Vegas (Nev.) Arbor View cornerback likes the Buffaloes a lot but also wants to wait through his senior year to see if any other programs offer.
So far, Colorado is the only offer he's received.
"I met their coach, he was down in Las Vegas, and he visited our school," Eason said. "One of my coaches sent my highlight tape out to him and then he told me he liked my highlight tape and he liked me as a player.

"He was telling me how they think I'd fit in their defensive package. They like me as a defensive back. He told me they were going to be watching me and he wanted to offer me a scholarship. I'm interested in them. Their program is really good and I would have a chance to play my freshman year."
Eason, a 6-foot, 180-pound two-star prospect by Rivals.com, didn't remember the Colorado coach's name who stopped by his school but the two might meet again because the Las Vegas recruit said he could schedule an official sometime in September.
However, a commitment is not expected for a while.
"I kind of want to wait to see what other offers come during my senior year before I make my decision," Eason said.
BYU, San Jose State and UNLV have been showing the most interest in Eason, rated as the seventh-best prospect in the Nevada state rankings. He's hoping more schools get involved in the coming weeks.
"A lot of the schools are saying they want to see how I do my senior year, they want to see how that goes," Eason said.
In his junior year, Eason finished with 1,136 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns and four receiving scores. On defense he tallied 57 tackles and four interceptions.
