Rouson Ready to Sign with CU (Free Content)

Jaslee Rouson will be living a dream on Wednesday when he signs with the school he has always wanted to play for--Colorado. He grew up watching his father, Lee Rouson, tote the rock for the Buffs to the tune of becoming CU's 9th all-time leading rusher. Rouson is ready to make his own mark in Boulder.

"I am really looking forward to signing day," Jaslee Rouson told the Buffalo Sports News. "I will probably head to Boulder during my spring break in April just to check it out some more and get a better feel for it. I am excited to see what position I will play up there. The coaches tell me that I could put on 15 pounds and be a fullback or I could lose 10 to 15 pounds and be a tailback. I am willing to do whatever I need to do to help the team. I am a great athlete and I can play a lot of different positions."

The CU staff has not been by to visit Rouson as of late. "I told Coach (Kent) Riddle that he does not even need to waste his time - I am sold. He needs to go out and get after the kids that they still need to sell. He knows how excited I am about coming there."

The New Jersey athlete made the final decision to be a Buff after the in-state school became disinterested. "Rutgers was my number one school at one point because they were recruiting me hard my sophomore and junior years and then they just kind of stopped recruiting me. They became pretty full at running back and I guess they didn't need me anymore. I don't think Rutgers does enough in-state to recruit players here. Even the west coast schools come out here to recruit because they know we east coast boys can play out there and be effective. Rutgers really ought to do more here."

After Rouson committed to the Buffs, most other schools ceased their recruitment of him. "Ohio is still recruiting me a little bit, but everyone knows I am solid with Colorado. They all know that is where I am going."

The future Buff has worked extremely hard to get his grades in order and he fully expects them to be fine for qualification purposes. "I have made up a lot of bad grades and there will be no problem at all with me getting into school."
