Brown enjoys Colorado State's spring game

Taking a break from physical preparation for his senior season to make a final run at impressing college football coaches, Loveland (Colo.) Thompson Valley running back Dorian Brown was in Fort Collins Saturday, watching a game for a change.

Getting to check out Colorado State's annual spring game, Brown, who stands at 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, said he enjoyed what he saw at Hughes Stadium over the weekend.

"I though it was pretty exciting. I liked how the green team did the whole motion play, or whatever you want to call it (trick play designed to distract the defense)," Brown said Saturday. "I do wish it could have gone a little longer."

The Rams' spring game ran roughly 45 minutes and consisted of 50 plays. The team held a standard practice before the Green and Gold game that fans were also able to attend.

Projected as one of the top prospects from the state of Colorado's class of 2011, Brown said he is paying attention to the running back situation at Colorado State, as they currently have a deep backfield.

"They have a lot of good players out there. [Chris Nwoke] and [Leonard Mason] both looked really good today. They should have a strong backfield next season," he said.

Brown added that he was disappointed he didn't get to see UCLA transfer Raymond Carter play. Carter sat out of the spring game as a precautionary measure due to his leg.

The only two offers the Loveland product currently holds are from Colorado State and Colorado. The Buffaloes originally wanted Brown to play linebacker, but are now offering him as a running back.

He also attended Colorado's spring game on April 10 in Boulder.

No school is seen as a favorite by Brown, as the recruiting process still has a way to go.
