Todd Ready to 'Get to Work' in Boulder

"I am heading back to Boulder next summer after the spring semester," explained Todd. "I actually qualified out of high school and had my test score, but the only core course I didn't have was a foreign language. So I am taking Spanish here now and just need to keep my grades up."

Todd has been speaking regularly with CU Defensive Line Coach, Chris Wilson. "He is telling me that I have a good chance of playing immediately when I get there. My goals right now are to take care of business here and then go to Colorado and get to work."

Although the CU coaches have not specified if he will play on the inside or outside in college, chances are it will be on the interior.

Defensive Tackle will be a major need position for the Buffs next fall with Brandon Dabdoub, McKenzie Tilmon, and Matt McChesney all moving on. Todd has been in the rotation at NEO this fall and through four games he has three sacks, one fumble recovery, and one caused fumble.

He believes that going the JUCO route has only helped his game. "They are faster and more physical here but I think I am doing good and improving."

Not many other schools have tried getting in on the future Buff. "They all know where I'm going."

When he does return to Colorado, it will only be the second time he has ever left the state of Oklahoma. The first time coming when he visited CU officially last fall.

Todd will get to Boulder with four years to play three. NEO A&M is 3-1 on the season and takes on Cisco College in Cisco, Texas, this Saturday.
