Dual-Threat Quarterback Has Buffs in Top Five

Colorado is very thin on quarterbacks. The new staff added their first quarterback of this cycle last week and they will most likely have to go after another with the shallow numbers. A player interested in the Buffs is the versatile David Potts from Monrovia, California.

Height: 6-4
Weight: 190
40 time: 4.67
Bench: 260
Squat: 355
Clean: 215
Vertical: '34
From: Monrovia, California

As a junior, David Potts threw for 1,515 yards and 12 touchdowns and ran for 250 yards and six touchdowns. Potts was named first team all-league and the League Offensive Back of the Year. His sophomore season, he threw for 1,757 yards and 13 touchdowns. "I have great arm strength." Potts claims. "I am working on my leg strength to become more of a running quarterback and a dual-threat quarterback. I am also tall, so I see the field well."

Potts does not have any written offers yet, but is receiving good interest. "I think the closest schools to offering are Oregon State and Washington. Washington is probably showing me the most overall attention."

He is focusing on five main schools. "Oregon State, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah are the main ones right now.

"The coach I have spoken with at Colorado (Brian Cabral) is real cool. We spoke last month. I hear they have a great campus. My head coach told me they do. He also says it has nice surrounding areas and that it is a good school in a good community."

This summer, Potts will attend the Beyond 2000 camp, but does not plan on attending any team camps.

He carries a 2.5 core GPA and scored a 1090 on the SAT. Potts would like to major in Business or Engineering.
