Jordon Vaden earned the overall MVP last summer as a sophomore at Colorado State's summer camp and the Rams have since offered but the Brighton (Colo.) Prairie View wide receiver plans to take his time with recruiting.
"They started really getting interested in me when I went to their camp last summer," Vaden said.
"I played well against the older kids and I got MVP of the whole camp so that's what definitely brought them on to me. Ever since then they've shown a lot of interest and kept an eye on me and I guess I impressed them enough for them to offer me."
Since Colorado, Minnesota, Kansas State, Boise State, Oklahoma State, Utah and TCU are also showing interest though, Vaden said he doesn't plan to rush into a college commitment.
This summer the 6-foot-3, 170-pound prospect could schedule some unofficial visits to get a better feel for which programs are seriously involved. With interest coming in from a lot of schools, Vaden wants to figure out if any other teams will offer him before he makes a decision.
"Right now I haven't planned any trips," Vaden said. "I've been really focused on school and finishing off high school sports this year. When we get to the summertime I'll probably plan a few trips to some schools.
"I'm just trying to take it slow. Colorado State is probably right now on the leader board because they offered first but I'm going to take the process slow and see who else offers me and see who else is interested. I'm going to take my time to see if CSU is the best place for me to go."
In his junior season, Vaden averaged 14.2 yards per catch, 8.3 yards per carry and 36 yards per kick return. He can also be used as a defensive back.
