After winning his first Valley title on Friday night, Fellner was on his way to visit UCLA – unofficially – for the game against USC. On the way down Interstate 5 Saturday morning, he received a call from a Big XII defensive coordinator.
"Colorado offered," Fellner told Scout.com via text message. "Yeah, defensive coordinator [Ron Collins] called and offered."
The Buffalos are the first Big XII school to offer Fellner but his fifth from a BCS school. Arizona offered him recently, and he says he will trip to Tucson the weekend of December 19. Fellner is still verbally committed to Washington, but says he has not heard anything from the university since the impending announcement of new head coach Steve Sarkisian.
"I thought it was going to be [Fresno State head coach] Pat Hill," said Fellner.
Fellner's season is over and he is focused on recruiting. He is still a Husky, but he is keeping his options open until he talks to Coach Sarkisian. Stanford was the first school to offer him, but it is as a running back. The Cardinal is still keeping contact, but Fellner prefers to play defense. Washington State, San Diego State, and Air Force have offered him as a safety.
Saturday's UCLA-USC game is not Fellner's first trip to Pasadena to check out the Bruins. He also visited Berkeley last month for the California-Oregon game, two schools he is also keeping on his radar.
Fellner carries a 3.6 GPA. He scored over 1500 on the SAT.
