Catalon talks Colorado commitment
Houston (TX) Westside running back Benjamin Catalon ended his recruitment today when he pledged his services to Colorado. The 5-foot-8, 185-pound playmaker spoke with Scout.com about why he chose the Buffs over multiple other suitors. "I just committed to Colorado about an hour ago," said Catalon. The Buffaloes coaching staff was able to secure a commitment from the three-star running back despite the fact that he has yet to set foot on campus for a visit. "I just felt like they offer everything that I want in a school. They have a good football program, great academics and the atmosphere there had a lot to do with it also. I've haven't actually visited the campus yet but several of my family members have and they told me all about it. Also, the coaches really made me feel like they wanted me there. All of their letters were hand-written and they made me feel like I was a really high priority to them." Catalon will be making his way to Boulder on April 9 to see first hand where he will be calling home for the next four years. He claims that he is very firm in his commitment, although he will still listen to other potential suitors. "I'm very strong on Colorado. Honestly, I can't think of another school taking their place but I'm going to still be listening to other schools and what their coaches have to tell me." Catalon chose the Buffaloes over offers from Baylor and Missouri. He finished his junior season with 115 carries for 1,116 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also had 12 receptions for 245 yards and a touchdown. He plans to graduate from high school a semester early and expects to be on hand to participate in Colorado's spring practices in 2012.
