He visited CU for the Kansas game and had a great time and now after a few weeks of thinking about it, he favors Colorado over his former co-favorite Iowa State. Cantrell also lets us know what is going on with his highly regarded teammate, Adrian Arrington.

"I don't really think Adrian Arrington is looking at Colorado anymore. He likes other schools better," said Maurice.

Cantrell is certainly liking Colorado.

"They are my favorite followed by Iowa State at number two. Iowa is number three and Purdue is number four."

The Boilermakers and Hawkeyes have mentioned to him that offers could be coming soon. Maurice was supposed to take in the Buffs-Cyclones game over the weekend but it didn't happen.

"Nope, I couldn't, I was too banged up. I twisted my ankle a little in our game the other night so I wanted to stay off of it. But I heard what Colorado did to them."

Even though he is injured, Maurice says nothing could keep him on the sideline this Friday night.

"Whatever, I don't care what is wrong with me. I am not going to miss my chance at being a part of history."

Cantrell has three picks this year. One of which he returned for a touchdown. He also has five touchdowns on offense playing fullback.

He is being recruited to CU by Coach Cabral and says the Buffs and Iowa State are recruiting him the hardest.

He will visit ISU on Thanksgiving weekend. He says he would also like to visit Purdue.
