Colorado State 2011 Recruiting Class Takes Blow With Loss Of Kapri Bibbs

The Colorado State Rams football team lost a potential star on Thursday when Kapri Bibbs announced that he will attend a junior college for the upcoming academic year, reports Nick Groke of the Denver Post. However, he still plans on sticking with his commitment to the Rams and will enroll in 2012.

As the Post reports, Bibbs' ACT score did not meet school requirements, so he is headed to a junior college. The Post speculates that somewhere in Utah is likely.

According to his profile on the CSU football page (check it out while it's still there), Bibbs was recruited by Pitt, Illinois, Purdue, UCLA, Tennessee, Colorado, Wyoming, Northern Illinois, Ball State and Toledo, but ultimately chose the Rams.

Though he wowed recruiters with his game at Plainfield North High School in Illinois, Bibbs was born in Colorado Springs. The Chicago Sun-Times has more on the 520-yard, seven-touchdown performance the Post article mentions.

The Rams will still look to sophomore quarterback Pete Thomas to improve on his freshman season while senior Raymond Carter is expected to shoulder the load in the backfield.
