Blue Springs OT Chooses CSU
Jordan Benson didn't take long to make his decision. After learning Wednesday that Colorado State had offered him a scholarship, the Blue Springs (MO) offensive tackle committed to the Rams yesterday. "I had heard from them via mail for a couple of weeks," he said of the CSU coaching staff. "Coach Skipper called me, and just told me he wasn't going to be around the bush. Then it happened." "I was excited," he said of hearing the news from assistant head coach Tim Skipper. "I knew about the coaching staff and the head coach switch, and how they are on the rise." The 6-foot-4, 267-pound mauler has been a key part of the Wildcats rise to power in Kansas City. Widely regarded as the best team in the metro, Blue Springs is the defending Missouri Class 6 State Champion, riding a 17-game winning streak as they head into action this Friday. In 2012, Benson paved the way for All-State running back Dalvin Warmack, earning honorable mention all-league honors. "They said I'm nasty," Benson said with a smile "And that I play through the whistle, and that you don't see offensive linemen sprinting 20 to 30 yards down the field making blocks like I do." The Blue Springs standout was clearly glad to be done with the recruiting process. After landing offers from Illinois State, Kentucky, South Dakota, Southern Illinois, and Toledo, he jumped at the chance to play at Colorado State. "All of it is so unbelievably relieving," he said with a smile. "Now I can focus 100% on leading my team as far into the season as we can go." Benson hasn't seen the Fort Collins campus yet, but the newest Rams commit plans to make an official visit soon. "I haven't set a date up yet, but it will be soon. That is my number one priority."
