Waller down to two teams

With Feb. 1 fast approaching, it has become a two-team race for Eatonton (Ga.)Putnam County running back Marteze Waller.
He will pick either Colorado State or Fresno State.
Right now, Waller isn't favoring either over the other.
"I really like both of them," he said. "I don't know at all right now [whom to choose]. I've got to talk it over with my mom."
The 5-feet-11, 207-pound Waller, who said he rushed for more than 2,000 yards in 2011, visited Colorado State this weekend.
"I liked the facilities and everything," Waller said. "Their facilities are brand new. I like the coaches. They talk to you and tell you what you can do there."
During his visit, Waller met with Rams coach Jim McElwain.
"We talked at the hotel," Waller said. "He said they need a running back like Trent Richardson or Eddie Lacy. I think he's going to turn that program around."
Last weekend, Waller made his official to Fresno State.
"I really liked the coaches, and it's like a family," Waller said. "The players are cool. They talked to you and everything. They didn't try to put you down and stuff. The coaches were cool. They just want you to work hard."
