Colorado reaches into N.C. for running back

Our colleague, the News & Observer's Tim Stevens, reports that Trea Jones, a 1,651-yard rusher at Wake Forest-Rolesville, committed to Colorado during his official visit last weekend.

Jones is a 5-foot-11, 187-pound senior. He led the Cougars to a 14-0 record, but missed the state semifinal game after breaking his ankle in the third round.

"Colorado is getting a steal," said WF-R coach Reggie Lucas. "He is a good student and a quality young man. He is going to work as hard as he can, improve the program and graduate. That's about all you ask for."
