Colorado playing in California against UCLA Saturday gave several Buff commitments and prospects the opportunity to watch CU play in live action.

The Buffs gave recruits one of the best halves they played all season, only trailing the Bruins by 8 points at the intermission.

Apparently the game impressed several Buff prospects.

Colorado commitment Jase Franke attended the game and enjoyed his time around the Buffs.

"This is my kind of coaching staff at Colorado," Franke said. "They are true player coaches, they are great teachers of the game."

In fact Franke gives Colorado defensive line coach Jim Jeffcoat a lot of credit for the standout defensive lineman having his best season of his career.

"I got the chance to work with Coach Jeffcoat at a camp this summer in the Redlands," Franke said. "He taught me so much in such a short time. I'm having a great season this year, making a lot of big plays. I'm a lot faster off the ball compared to where I was last year. Coach Jeffcoat helped me in several of those areas."

Colorado's efforts against a top 20 UCLA school didn't go un-noticed by Franke.

"I really like how they (Buffs) played," Franke said. "They will be a winning team in the next couple of years. I like what the staff is doing, they have come a long ways from last year. It's a good start, I like where they are heading and want to be a part of it."

While Franke states that he is still completely committed to Colorado, it appears that the defensive lineman may take a couple of other visits.

"I'm committed to Colorado," Franke said. "I might take a couple visits to Cal and maybe Boise State."

According to Franke, he has built a solid relationship with the Buff coaching staff.

"I talk to them at least once a week," Franke said. "They are so easy to talk to, they care about how I'm doing as a person, not just a football player."
