"Colorado is the place I have wanted to go for a while," Thomas Perez said. "It is the best place for me no matter who the head coach is. They were the first school that jumped on me and I have been with them from the start."
He was named second team all-conference this fall after rushing for 928 yards and 11 touchdowns. "I missed two and a half games with an ankle injury."
What kind of back is CU getting? "I am a big back and an every down back. I am quick when I need to be and nobody can catch me in the open field."
Perez will be in Boulder this spring and will have three years to play two. He receives his Associate Arts degree after classes end this Friday.
