The Buffaloes lose the commitment of in-state tight end Mitch Parsons.
Straight from the source, 4-star tight end prospect Mitch Parsons is no longer committed to Colorado. Parsons tweeted the news himself:
Well Im no longer committed to Colorado still going to stay in contact with the coaches but I need to figure some things out #SoMuchOnMyMind— Mitch Parsons8⃣0⃣ (@mitchythekid80) October 25, 2012
Rivals rates Parsons as a four-star tight end. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound prospect from Parker, Colo., has also received offers from Arizona State, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. He's ranked as the No. 10 tight end in the country and the second-best prospect in the state.
SB Nation Buffaloes blog Ralphie Report writer Jon Woods is keeping the door open for Parsons to still be a Buff.
Losing such a highly rated in-state commitment isn't good news for Buffaloes fans, who are suffering through a terrible sophomore season in the Pac-12. Colorado has been blown out in three straight conference games, and things don't figure to get any easier this weekend as the Buffaloes are on the road to play No. 2 Oregon.
