"I went to the Colorado camp last summer. I really like all the coaches and have always been a fan of them. They have offered me verbally and said that as soon as Barnett comes back that I will most likely get it in writing. They have a great system there and I like the Big 12."

Wiedeman says that his parents would also like to see him at CU, although his Father is a little partical to Wyoming since he went to school there.

So will Brian commit if/when he gets the CU offer?

"Probably not, I will wait until the end of June. I still want to check out some other schools this summer."

Those schools include Arizona State, Kansas State, and Colorado State, where he will attend camps. He will also attend a team summer camp at the University of Nebraska-Kearney. Wiedeman was at CU's Junior Day and will also make it to the Buffs' summer camp.

He threw for 1,600 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior. Brian added 400 yards and six touchdowns rushing. He was named first team all-conference and all-county.

He feels he makes things happen on the field.

"I have a good arm and I make a lot of plays happen on the run."

Greeley West Head Coach Mark Roggy says of Wiedeman, "There is not anything he can't do. He is a good runner, has speed, and is elusive. Brian can make all the throws. He is just a very versatile player."

He is being recruited to CU by Coach Watson and says the Buffs are after him the hardest.

Wiedeman carries a 2.8 core GPA and scored a 25 on his ACT. He is undecided on a major.
