Behrens Playing the Waiting Game (free content)

Jake Behrens visited Colorado last weekend and his trip went real well. He has had his choices narrowed down to CU and Stanford for quite some time. So did the Buffs gain any kind of advantage after the visit?

"It was great to take the trip and get more in-depth with the coaches at Colorado," said Behrens. "I really liked it a lot out there. The coaches tell me that not only do they want me, but they need me. Their fullback position can use some help and they think I can help them."

Stanford is waiting for Pittsburgh coach, Walt Harris, to make the trek to Palo Alto. That is when things could really start heating up for the Omaha fullback. "I have been talking to the running backs coach (Wayne Moses) there a lot lately. I just sent them film so I will see how they feel about me. Depending on what they think, they may or may not need me. I do not expect to hear from them much more in the immediate future because they are busy with their bowl game."

He has a tentative visit scheduled to Stanford for January 14th.

Coach Simms from CU is recruiting Behrens and he took a trip to the fullback's household last Wednesday.

Behrens finished the year with 203 rushes for 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns. He also caught one ball for ten yards and a score. At defensive end, he had 65 tackles, five sacks, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
