CU Offers Cali Quarterback

Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison quarterback Nick Crissman (6-3, 200), received good news on Tuesday when his first offer came in. It was from the Buffs.

"I just got my first offer today from Colorado," said Crissman. "It's awesome and hopefully will get the ball rolling."

The offer from the Buffs made a big impact with Nick Crissman.

"It's pretty cool because they were one of my top schools to begin with," said Crissman. "I'm wide open but this definitely puts them in the top 2-3."

Crissman called the Buffs to get the good news and spoke with coach Dan Hawkins.

"Coach Hawkins is really cool and I really liked talking to him and getting to know him," said Crissman.

Crissman is on a whirlwind of visits to the in-state schools. Last weekend, Crissman attended USC's Junior Day, this Thursday, he'll take in UCLA's first spring practice and then this weekend he'll head up to Berkeley for their spring practice and a chance to meet with the coaches.

"I'm still taking my time, but hopefully this starts opening up more offers for me," said Crissman.

As a 2006 junior for the Chargers, Crissman threw for 3,094 yards and 27 touchdowns (232-for-368), leading Edison to an 11-3 record and the CIF Pac-5 Finals, where they lost to Orange Lutheran.
