After months of speculation on what happened to prevent CU signee Sherman Lang from getting into school, the Buffalo Sports News was able to catch up with the receiver so he could shed some light on the situation. "My school would not release my transcripts," Lang explained. "It is a private school and they wouldn't release them because I owed them money. I thought everything was being taken care of but I didn't find out about them not releasing the transcripts until it was too late."
Lang--who recorded 27 receptions for 421 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior--is red-shirting this season and will play next year. "Coach Kiesau wanted me to red-shirt so then I could have three years to play three at Colorado. I will play next year and then move back to Boulder for spring ball in 2008."
The future Buff had spent all last summer at CU getting acquainted with teammates and still keeps in contact with a few of them. "I was staying with Patrick Williams and I got to meet some of the other recruits like Demetrius Sumler, Scott McKnight and Cody Hawkins. I still speak with some of them on a regular basis."
Lang has watched CU a few times this fall and the same thought keeps coming to his mind. "I just wish that I was on the field with them. I want to be playing there right now."
He says that he would have no problem seeing playing time at Butler this year if he weren't red-shirting.
The BSN will continue to keep tabs on Lang until he arrives back at Colorado.
