Mike MacIntyre could turn SJSU QB recruit to Colorado

New Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre could bring another player into the Buffaloes' quarterback competition.

The Colorado Buffaloes will be in the rare position next season where they'll be returning three quarterbacks who saw game action in 2012, making the competition for starter an interesting one. But that competition could feature another name, too.

The Denver Post reports that Arizona high school quarterback Darrell Garretson could transfer his commitment to CU to join the coach that recruited him to San Jose State, Mike MacIntyre. Colorado hired MacIntyre from San Jose State last week to replace Jon Embree.

The 6', 205-pound Garretson is a three-star recruit who threw for 3,100 yards, 27 touchdowns and six interceptions for Chandler High in Arizona as a senior.

Colorado's quarterback situation is crowded but open for competition. Neither Jordan Webb (who started the season), Nick Hirschman nor Connor Wood took control of the job while each receiving opportunities for the Buffs (1-11) in 2012. Colorado finished next to last in FBS in passing efficiency.

The team also has redshirt freshman Shane Dillon on the roster, who could compete with the other three for the chance to run MacIntyre's spread offense.
