Peterson takes in Buff's Junior Day

It's often that a high school athlete will remember his first college offer. That's the case for California athlete Cedric Peterson. The talented defensive back received his first official offer from Colorado, since then he has received offers from California, Indiana, Washington State and Nebraska.

That's the case for California athlete Cedric Peterson. The talented defensive back received his first official offer from Colorado, since then he has received offers from California, Indiana, Washington State and Nebraska.

Peterson took an unofficial visit to Colorado this past weekend for the Buffs Junior Day and came away from Boulder impressed.

"It was definitely better than I thought it would be," Peterson told BuffPlayBook.com. "I didn't realize how cold it gets, I'm not use to being out in the snow."

Peterson, a 6-foot-0, 190 pound athlete, is rated a three star corner by Scout.com.

Peterson was impressed with the Colorado coaching staff.

"They are really cool," Peterson said. "They showed us a lot of love, they told me that they really want me out there."

Peterson spent two days in Boulder getting familiar with the CU College Campus and learning more about the Buff Football program.

"We checked out the campus, they talked to us about academics and much more," Peterson said. "Got to see some pics and presentation of their new athletic facilities, they are going to be very nice."

He was also impressed with the Buff Fan base both in the community and at the College Game Day Basketball Game.

"Everyone knows everyone in Boulder," Peterson said. "Everyone is dedicated to the school. The gameday experience was something special. I was impressed with the crowd, how much love they have for their team."

"Colorado has definitely caught my attention," Peterson said. "I will always remember my first offer."
