After Vaka Manupuna and James Garee, Colorado's two starters, the Buffs are thin in terms of experienced depth on the interior of the defensive line. Chris Todd, originally a member of CU's 2004 recruiting class, spent last season at NE Oklahoma A&M and re-signed with the Buffs in February. His plan was to enroll at CU and play for the Buffs this fall, where he would add needed depth to the defensive line. Inside, an update on Todd's status.
Reached at his home in Tulsa Friday, Chris Todd
said he will not be a member of the 2005 Colorado football team. He plans to attend NEO again this fall.
"I'm going to take two classes (at NEO in the fall), and I'm coming (to CU) in December," Todd said.
He said he will take a sociology class and a leadership class at NEO. He said told the CU coaches of his situation recently.
Todd, 6-2, 280 pounds, was a defensive end at Tulsa's East Central High School. He played nose guard and defensive tackle for the NEO Norsemen last fall, but said he's unsure if he'll play for NEO again this fall. Todd said the CU coaches had wanted him to play on the interior, as well.
