Ricky Thenarse to Decide on Wednesday

There has been a lot of excitement amongst the CU faithful since the Buffalo Sports News broke the news about Thenarse officially visiting Boulder. He spoke with us last night to tell us where he is in the recruiting process and give us his thoughts on the trip.

Ricky Thenarse is officially down to Nebraska, Colorado and Fresno State. He visited CU this weekend and he'll be making his commitment announcement at half time of his basketball game, this Wednesday. The game will be carried on ESPNU.

We get his thoughts on the Boulder trip. "It was a cool trip," Thenarse said. "I really liked the snow. I don't get to see much of that where I live. Other then that, it was pretty much the same as my other trips."

The versatile athlete was able to sit down with the coaches and figure out their plans for him. "They told me I could come in there and probably start at corner or receiver. I am not leaning to any one school right now, I will make my choice on Wednesday. Colorado scheduled another in-home visit with me on Wednesday night."

Thenarse would be a tremendous additon to the CU recruiting class. It appears that if he committed to the Buffs, and he didn't get the needed test grade by the fall, Colorado would gray-shirt him and bring him in for spring ball, 2007.
