<b>Corey Nabors</b> led the state in rushing last year in the 5A class with 2,335 yards and 30 touchdowns on 286 carries. He was named second team all-state. He is from the same school, Rangeview, that sent Maurice Lucas to the Buffs last week. The two are good friends and Nabors favors the Buffs early.

"Colorado has a great background and a great history. I was watching them back when Kordell Stewart was there all the way up to Marcus Houston. They were my favorite team growing up. I think Colorado takes good care of their players. Maurice (Lucas) is going there now and him and I are good friends - we talk everyday."

Coach Wristen is after Nabors for the Buffs and he has been sending handwritten letters. "He just tells me they are real interested in me and that I just need to gain some weight and continue to get better."

Along with the Buffs, the Rangeview product is looking at Kansas, Kansas State, Colorado State, and Idaho.

In addition to offense, Nabors saw spot-duty at cornerback last year where he recorded five tackles. Rangeview head coach Dave Gonzales weighs in on Corey's talents. "He is a physically strong kid and he has a great work ethic. He could play both ways, but we let him focus on offense. Corey is also a great student."

Nabors believes he excels in two areas of his game. "I have good field vision and change-of-direction."

He carries a 3.3 core GPA and recently took the Pre-SAT and is awaiting the score. Nabors would like to major in Criminal Law.
