A cornerback for one of Nevada's best high school teams will be joining Colorado State next season.
Justin Sweet, a three-year starter at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, has verbally committed to the Rams for next year and beyond.The 5'10, 182-pound Sweet is joining a Colorado State team he feels is on the way up.
"I know all the coaching staff really cares about their players and takes care of them," Sweet told the Coloradoan. "That was probably the biggest reason why I chose CSU."
Last year with Bishop Gorman, which has won the last four Class 4A state titles, Sweet had 33 tackles and a pair of interceptions as a senior en route to all-conference honors. The year prior, Sweet racked up 48 hits and a pick in his first all-conference season.
Sweet, who also had scholarship offers from Nevada, New Mexico and UNLV, first visited Colorado State in October. He met with defensive backs coach Tim Skipper last weekend at Sweet's family's home in Las Vegas. Sweet says that coaches have told him he will have a chance to play next season.
