Phillip Lindsay recruiting: Denver RB still committed to Colorado

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE

Despite the coaching change at Colorado, the Denver South star is focused on helping new head coach Mike MacIntyre rebuild the program.

Following the Colorado Buffaloes coaching change, Denver South running back Phillip Lindsay has remained committed to the program, according to Ryan Casey of The Denver Post.

Lindsay originally committed to Colorado in March, but when Jon Embree was fired on Nov. 25, the prized recruit was eager to find out who the team's next head coach would be. Just a day after being announced as the Buffaloes new head coach, Mike MacIntyre made Lindsay the first recruit he called. The former San Jose State coach let Lindsay know that he was committed to the running back, and Lindsay reciprocated that commitment.

"I stayed (loyal) to CU, because they stayed (loyal) to me," Lindsay said.

Lindsay tore the ACL in his left knee in Denver South's first game of the season and played on the knee until the third game of the season, before deciding to undergo reconstructive surgery in September. He expects to be "back to normal" by the time he heads to Boulder.

Lindsay had an outstanding junior season on both sides of the ball at Denver South, rushing for 1,762 yards and 13 touchdowns, while notching 91 tackles at linebacker.
