The offer from Colorado was a big surprise for Jamarr Graves but the Portland (Ore.) Grant wide receiver is excited about the Buffaloes and definitely has them as one of his top teams.
Still, the 6-foot-4, 185-pound three-star prospect wants to wait things out in his senior season to see which other programs get involved in his recruitment before he makes his college decision.
"I'm kind of waiting for my first couple games to see what happens and then hopefully get some more film out and see if anybody else responds," Graves said.
"I wouldn't say (Colorado) is a favorite but it would be nice to get out of state. Anything would really work for me. I do like them a lot."
Colorado and Portland State have offered Graves, rated ninth in the Oregon state rankings by Rivals.com, and he said Eastern Washington has also shown more interest.
Since his recruitment hasn't picked up that much this summer he said it was a surprise when the Buffaloes entered the fray.
"Their quarterbacks coach, Rip Scherer, he came down to the school," Graves said. "He came down once and I met him once and then sometime after that he came back and they offered right there.
"I went down to their camp earlier this summer and I really liked what I saw. They're very talented and their coaching staff is very good. They have a lot of coaches who have been to great places. Their coaches are really good and they should have a nice season."
Graves has not set any official visits yet. One is expected to Colorado but the Oregon wide receiver isn't sure where else he'd like to visit at this point.
