Colorado had a good mixture of current commitments along with several uncommitted prospects for official visitors this past weekend.

One high school prospect that has been committed to the Buffs for several months is California athlete Dylan Keeney.

Keeney, a three star tight end from Granite Bay HS in California, left Boulder very impressed with the Buffs which helped solidify his pledge to Colorado.

"It was good," Keeney told BuffPlayBook.com. "I got to spend some time with all of the coaches, I enjoyed everything about the visit."

Colorado's Basketball team upset No. 6 Kansas this past Saturday, an event that the official visitors got the opportunity to take in.

"The gameday basketball atmosphere was incredible," Keeney said. "The basketball game was really cool, the student section was incredible."

We asked Keeney if he is the type of student who could be found in the student section next basketball season.

"We will have to see once I get there," Keeney said. "It's a great place to watch the game from."

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound athlete is excited about playing tight end for the Buffs.

"The coaches are really big on me playing tight end," Keeney said. "It's my goal to gain another 20 pounds before arriving to school here this upcoming summer."

Keeney got the chance to sit down with several of the current Buff Football team to get their thoughts on several topics.

"I learned a lot from the current players," Keeney said. "I found out how they find a balance between school and football. All of the players seem to really get a long with each other. There is a lot of team bonding, it's like becoming a part of a new family, I like that about Coach (Mike) MacIntyre and his staff."

Keeney and the official visitors got a chance to sit down with Colorado new Athletic Director Rick George.

"He showed us the future plans and facilities," Keeney said. "The AD came up and talk to us about all of the facilities, he told us how he and the schools administration is behind this football team. The new facilities are going to be amazing."
