Gorman to Colorado
Colorado fans won't be very familiar with their latest preferred walk-on in Manheim Central High School signal caller Justin Gorman, but Scout.com can shed some light on his situation. Gorman was actually a standout wide receiver for his team until half way through his junior year when their starting quarterback went down and was a "plug-in" to help Manheim toward a State Championship. The 6-foot, 185-pound athlete was outstanding from his first game and simply never returned to his original position at wideout. We talked to him tonight about going to Colorado. "I committed to Colorado like a week ago," Gorman said. "They want me to come out and prove myself at slot receiver this year and if I do well, I'll be on scholarship next year, so it's a preferred walk-on. All I know is I have the chance to compete the first year which is great and I'll also be able to try and return kick and punt returns." "I wanted to play at the highest level possible and the Big 12 is definitely a high level," Gorman added. "I'm very confident I can compete with players at that level and think with hard work I can win that slot position eventually. I like Coach (Dan) Hawkins a lot and love the area too, so it was a very easy decision." "I did turn down some full rides from Air Force, Albany and William & Mary, but that was just because I know if I go compete like I know I can I can play at the highest level and help a team I really liked on my official visit." With one game left in his senior season, Gorman had already passed for 2161 yards and 19 touchdowns and had added 1113 yards and 20 touchdowns on the ground, good for 6.7 yards per carry. He is the first player in the history of the storied Manheim Central program to pass for 2000 yards and rush for 1000 yards in a single season.
