Colorado State Football Recruiting 2013: Speedy RB Kapri Bibbs Is On A Long Journey To CSU

Running back recruit Kapri Bibbs had planned on joining the Colorado State football team much earlier than 2013, but he had to put in some extra work to make it happen. The NCAA ruled Bibbs ineligible coming out of high school due to low ACT scores, but he put in hard work at Snow College in Ephraim, Utah to get his grades up and now he is ready to start classes at Colorado St. next spring as part of the 2013 recruiting class.

Kelly Lyell of the Coloradoan recently profiled Bibbs' journey, and the young man is proud of his progress and excited about the opportunity to work with the CSU staff:

"I love the staff that they had before, but now you've got the ‘Bama coach, Coach McElwain, he just came in and all of his guys," Bibbs said. "They coached Trent Richardson, one of the greatest running backs to ever play the game at the college level. With where I'm at now, and with their help, I've got a feeling they can transform me into a much better player than I already am."

As Lyell notes, Bibbs flashed "4.3-second speed in the 40-yard dash" and he ran for a total of 4,210 yards and 61 touchdowns in his final two seasons at Plainfield North High School in Chicago. Bibbs told also made to sure emphasize his dedication to the CSU progream: "I'm 100 percent sure I'll be in Fort Collins this fall...getting ready to start up in the spring."
