For one Texas defensive lineman all it took was a visit to the University of Colorado to help make his decision.

BuffPlayBook.com spoke with El Paso’s Eddy Lopez about his recent pledge to the Buffs.

“I fell in love with the campus, the town and the coaches earlier this summer during a camp,” Lopez said. “When I got the offer this weekend it didn’t take me long to realize that Colorado was where I belonged.”

The 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive tackle from Coronado High School currently has one offer but several other schools recruiting him hard to play at their schools.

“Right now Colorado is my only offer,” Lopez said. “UTEP, New Mexico State and New Mexico have all been recruiting me heavily and seem close to offering. It won’t matter who offers now, I’m committed to the University of Colorado and I’m a man of my word.”

According to Lopez, Colorado Head Football Coach Mike MacIntyre made sure that he understood what it mean’t to be committed to the Buffs.

“He told me that he wanted me to make sure that I wanted to be a Buff,” Lopez said. “He said that he wanted me to be 100 percent on my pledge, and if I was committed to him, he was committed to me. He told me that I made his day with my decision.”

Lopez will start two-a-day practices next Monday preparing for his senior season.
