One California athlete wasn't sure what to expect last weekend when he took an official visit to the University of Colorado.

Future Buff defensive end Michael Mathewes had an official offer from CU, he took his official visit last weekend and left Boulder more than impressed.

"I was really impressed with everything," Mathewes told BuffPlayBook.com. "I really like the new coaching staff."

Getting a chance to get to know the Buff coaching staff on a more personal setting was something that Mathewes took advantage of.

"I'm really impressed with what these coaches accomplished at San Jose State," Mathewes said. "I feel certain they are going to turn the Colorado Football program around as well."

One thing that stood out to the California athlete is the college town feel in Boulder.

"I love the outdoors," Mathewes said. "The entire environment of Colorado, the town is bigger than it looks, it's a great size college town with a lot of things to do. You would be hard to find a more beautiful campus in a better setting."

Mathewes, a 6-foot-4, 245 pound defensive linemen, is expected to play defensive end for Colorado unless he grows into a defensive tackle.

"Right now they are saying defensive end," Mathewes said. "It all depends on how much I grow once I get to college."

Colorado is Mathewes first Pac 12 offer, other schools who have offered the Mission Viejo HS defender also has offers from Nevada, Army, Air Force and Yale.
