San Diego (Cailf.) Cathedral Catholic three-star running back Demetrius Sumler has been on both sides of the Colorado and Boise State coaching chances. Not only was he recruited by both the old and new Colorado and Boise State staffs, he's also being heavily recruited by each of the new head coaches.
It's making for an interesting decision as signing day rapidly approaches.
"Right now I've narrowed it down to Boise State and Colorado," Sumler, who is 5-foot-10 and 220 pounds, said. "I've been to Boise already, and I'm very interested in their program. The way they did things over the past few years and early playing time is possible there.
"Dan Hawkins went to Colorado from Boise State, and I already have a good relationship with him. Coach (Gary) Barnett recruited me a little bit and then when coach Hawkins got there they jumped back on me. I told him I'd come visit Colorado this weekend. I want to check out the situation. I know it's the same good people, but I want to see the running back situation there."
Sumler said to expect a decision shortly after that.
"I think I'll know where I'm going soon after next weekend," he said. "It's down to those two, so as soon as I find out about Colorado this week I think I'll be able to make a decision."
Sumler, the nation's No. 54 running back, was also offered scholarships by Colorado State, UNLV, Fresno State and Nevada.
