Geer Becomes Third In-State Commitment

<a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=1171656">Riar Geer</a> committing to Colorado goes to show that the Buffs' staff can still recruit very effectively in-state despite all the recent negative publicity. Colorado is adding a lot of size with the beginning of this year's class and Riar will come to Boulder as a converted QB with a lot of athleticism. We spoke with him and his Father about the decision to head to CU. You can also check out his video highlights.

"We think it is a good decision for him," says Dan Geer, Riar's Father. "All of the controversy will be over with by the time he gets there and it is going away now. Colorado is local for him and his Mother I and are happy about that, very happy."

He went on to say that it doesn't matter who else was recruiting Riar. "Even if he would have had a lot of other offers, he would still have probably went to Colorado. He has always wanted to go there."

Geer is being recruited to CU as a tight end and he is more than okay with that. "I liked it when I played at the position when I went to their (CU's) camps," stated Riar. "I also played at tight end when I went to the Notre Dame camp. I think that it is a spot I can be very good at."

Geer has yet to speak with a CU coach verbally about his decision, but that is something that was probably taken care of earlier tonight. "I have been e-mailing with Coach Wristen, but haven't been able to get him on the phone, yet. I told him I was committing there through e-mail and he told me that him and the other coaches were real excited about it."

Riar went on to say that the coaches have not specified with him what weight they would like him to be at upon arrival in Boulder. "That is something else we were going to talk about tonight. I am at 235 right now and I think I can easily put on another 25-30 pounds on my frame."

This summer, Geer attended two camps at CU, and camps at Notre Dame, Colorado State, Wyoming, and Arizona State. All schools were looking at him as a quarterback, except CU. This year he will play there and at defensive end for Fruita Monument. His team started practice yesterday and gets their season underway August 27th versus Pomona.

Like his Father said, Riar has always wanted to be a Buff. "When I first started getting recruited they were at the top with Colorado State, but really they were number one. Then they offered and I had to jump on it. It is what I've always wanted."
