Nash hearing from Colorado State

Sulpher Springs (Tex.) defensive end Colton Nash is keeping his options open after a good visit to Colorado-Boulder last week as well as six scholarship offers. Included in those six offers is Colorado State.

This season Nash, a 6-foot-6, 245-pound defensive end with a 4.8 40-time has led his Sulpher Springs squad to a 6-2 mark headed into play this weekend with two district contests left.

"We know that if we win out, we are in for sure, but if we lose one, we might have to go into a tiebreaker. We feel good about it, so we'll see," Nash said.

Nash counts offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Kansas, Baylor, UTEP and Stephen F. Austin. Kansas State has also recently begun calling Nash. Nash went to Boulder last weekend for an unofficial visit, which he enjoyed. He said he will do the rest of his visits after the season.

Nash explained what he is looking for during his visits.

"First I am looking to see how the coaches are, as well as the players I will be playing with everyday," Nash said. "I also want to know if it is a good community, that will help and make things easier on me."

"As for the team, I want to see the team that knows what they want and have good players to help them do it. They don't have to have a great season, but someone who is doing it right," he added.

Nash said his biggest asset to a college football team is his versatility, saying his could play linebacker, defense end, tackle or anywhere else he is needed.

CSU cornerbacks coach Tim Duffie is Nash's main contact from Colorado State. Nash she Duffie has been to Sulpher Springs a couple times and they talk on a weekly basis. Nash added that he hopes to make a visit to CSU after his own football season is over.

"He (Coach Duffie) says it is a group of good guys that want the best for me," Nash said. "It is like a family up there. That is what I am looking for, so we'll see."

Currently, Nash has declined to name a favorite.

"I don't know really, everyone is pretty even," said Nash.
