  06/02/21 - David BaileySr/2022, Colorado State, 6-0, 236 (DS#28 RB) + More +

  David Bailey, Boston College's leading rusher last fall, is transferring to Colorado State to rejoin his former head coach, Steve Addazio. Bailey, a graduate transfer, was on the CSU campus Wednesday preparing to participate in the first scheduled summer workout with his new teammates, athletic department spokesman Kyle Neaves said. The transfer was first reported by 247Sports.

The 6-foot-1, 236-pound running back, ran for 503 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games last fall as a junior at Boston College. He was the Eagles' second-leading rusher in 2019, running for 181 yards in one game against North Carolina State and finishing with 844 yards and seven touchdowns while earning honorable mention in All-Atlantic Coast Conference voting. Bailey has two years of eligibility remaining, beginning this fall. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  Warren Jackson wasn't selected in the 2021 NFL draft, but has signed as a free agent with the Denver Broncos. Jackson was in contact with a number of teams following the draft and chose a return to Colorado to start his career as an undrafted free agent. The 6-foot-6, 219-pound Jackson is known for his extensive catch radius and ability to box-out defenders in the red zone. One of the main scouting concerns about Jackson was his speed.

Jackson opted out of the 2020 season when the Mountain West and several other college football conferences announced in August they would not have fall seasons. He made a big impression right off the bat at CSU, catching two touchdown passes as a true freshman in a 2017 loss at Alabama. In his three seasons, he caught 124 passes for 1,789 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was named to the All-Mountain West first team in 2019 as a junior and was the preseason pick as the league's 2020 Offensive Player of the Year. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  Former Boston College quarterback Matt Valecce, who threw for more than 10,000 yards in his high school career, said Monday he will transfer to Colorado State for his final two seasons of college football. Valecce, 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, appeared in six games at Boston College in 2019, completing 3 of 7 passes for 27 yards. Valecce announced his commitment on Twitter. He becomes the fifth player from Boston College's program to follow former Eagles coach Steve Addazio to Fort Collins. Offensive linemen Cam Reddy, Elijah Johnson and Adam Korutz transferred to CSU a year ago and started for the Rams in the COVID-19-abbreviated 2020 season. Defensive lineman Mike Ciaffoni transferred to CSU over the winter and participated in spring practices with the Rams. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  04/23/21 - Keevan BaileyJr/2023, Colorado State, 5-11, 180 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  Colorado State cornerback Keevan Bailey, the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Champ Bailey, has entered the NCAA transfer portal, he said Wednesday on Twitter. "In consideration of evolving my growth, I feel it's best that I enter the transfer portal," Keevan Bailey wrote, while thanking CSU and the football staff for the opportunity to play college football and "developing me into a better athlete." Keevan Bailey, a 5-foot-11, 180-pounder from Conyers, Georgia, played in eight games at CSU in 2019, recording 12 tackles, one interception and five pass breakups. He played in two of the Rams' four games in 2020 and did not make any tackles or break up any passes. Keevan Bailey has three years of eligibility remaining. Champ Bailey played 15 seasons in the NFL, 10 with the Denver Broncos, and made the Pro Bowl 12 times. He was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999, his first year of eligibility. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  Centeio is the clear-cut starter, with only freshmen backing him up. The former Temple transfer won the starting job last season, too, but struggled in the first game and was replaced by Patrick O'Brien, who left over the winter for Washington as a graduate transfer. O'Brien is the only starter on either side of the ball from last season who didn't return this spring. Centeio is a better passer than he showed last season, when he completed just 14 of 36 passes with one touchdown and one interception, Addazio and McBride said. And he has some tremendous playmaking abilities, they said, that were on full display this spring. "He's an unbelievable player," McBride said Thursday. "...He throws a really good ball, he's really smart, he understands the game, and I'm thrilled that he's our quarterback." - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  In a breakout season at Colorado State in 2019, Warren Jackson earned first-team All-Mountain West honors after racking up a team-leading 77 catches for 1,119 yards and eight touchdowns. If you ask Jackson - who opted out of the abbreviated 2020 college football season - that showing was just a prelude. And he's more than ready to show it ahead of CSU's Pro Day on Monday morning in Fort Collins. "That was me just getting started," he said. "I'm a lot faster now, I've learned a lot of new tricks, I've learned about myself a lot more. I'm a lot stronger. I'm just a completely different person and player than I was then. And I was injured - the (last six games), I had a grade 3 sprained AC joint, so people are evaluating year-old film where I was injured throughout the stretch of that season."

Jackson's determined mindset was cemented ahead of his breakout year in Fort Collins, as he re-dedicated himself to his training. He said that allowed him to "unlock a lot of different things" in his game. "It all started in the offseason," ex-CSU wideout coach Joe Cox said. "He took it to a different level in terms of what he put in and what he ended up being for our room as far as being the leader of the group. In the weight room, he pushed himself to some places where he might not have thought he could go. He was training, practicing and playing like he was a man on a mission." - Denver Post

  Colorado State football coach Steve Addazio made one thing clear as the Rams start spring practice this week: Todd Centeio is CSU's starting quarterback. "We have a definitive starter going into spring and that's Toddy," Addazio said Thursday during a virtual news conference. "We've got a group of young guys and a couple of guys who have been around. We want to really have a great spring to evaluate where they're at and then also elevate Toddy's game." Centeio is a Temple graduate transfer who arrived in Fort Collins last year with two seasons of eligibility left. He started in CSU's opener at Fresno State with mixed results - 10-of-23 passing for 141 yards, plus 80 yards rushing on 13 carries - in a 38-17 loss. Centeio was then supplanted as starter by Patrick O'Brien, since transferred to Washington, with Centeio entering CSU games twice in relief. - Denver Post

  02/11/21 - David BaileySr/2022, Colorado State, 6-0, 236 (DS#28 RB) + More +

  Boston College football's so-called "Buffalo Boys" were on a tear during the 2019 season, as AJ Dillon racked up yard after yard and fellow running back David Bailey played a glorious second fiddle. After the Green Bay Packers drafted Dillon in the 2020 NFL Draft, Bailey was in line for a starting spot, but he struggled under Jeff Hafley's more balanced, less run-heavy offense. Bailey entered his name in the transfer portal on Thursday. The portal allows players to publicly display their desire to scope out other programs, making the transfer process more transparent, but it does not bind them to departure. As a starter in 2020, Bailey recorded just 503 yards on 3.96 yards per carry. While playing backup to Dillon in 2019, however, Bailey put up 844 yards on 5.7 yards per carry. Bailey recorded 16 touchdowns-plus one passing touchdown-and an even 1600 career rushing yards in his time as an Eagle. - The Heights

  Former Colorado State receiver Warren Jackson has received an invitation to participate in the NFL's modified version of its annual scouting combine for draft prospects this year, school officials said Tuesday. Jackson opted out of the 2021 season in August, when the Mountain West originally announced plans to play a postponed schedule this spring and was already training for a professional football career when the conference reversed course with a modified season beginning in late October. The 6-foot-6, 215-pounder from Mission Hills, California, was CSU's leading receiver in 2019, when he caught 77 passes for 1,119 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games. He was the preseason pick as the 2020 MW Offensive Player of the Year. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  01/04/21 - Linwood CrumprSr/2022, Colorado State, 5-11, 175 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  The 6-foot, 175-pound Crump has already played parts of five seasons of college football. He's eligible to play another season due to the NCAA's ruling that the 2020 season didn't count toward eligibility for any player. He has 50 career tackles in 48 games played, with three interceptions (all in 2018) and 15 passes defensed. He led Temple in pass breakups in 2020. He redshirted in 2019 after missing most the season with a hand injury. CSU's secondary is in need of improvement. Despite the excellent pressure created by the defensive line, the Rams were still 10th in the Mountain West in pass yards allowed per game (250) in their four-game 2020 season. Crump will have one season with CSU. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  It could be argued that the best recruits the Colorado State football team is landing are already on the roster. The front line of defense for the Rams is looking stalwart by keeping several stars onboard for next season. Normally, players with eligibility remaining choosing to stay on the roster isn't news. These aren't normal times. The 2020 season didn't count against NCAA student-athletes' eligibility, so seniors can stay another year. But there's the allure of the NFL or a graduate transfer to greener pastures. Some are leaving, but some key contributors are staying.

Defensive line stars Manny Jones and Scott Patchan have announced they'll return for another year at CSU. Fellow defensive lineman Ellison Hubbard is also expected to return. Those are arguably CSU's top defensive senior players, all coming back. Patchan - a graduate transfer from Miami - led the MW in sacks and tackles for lost yardage per game in the abbreviated four-game 2020 season with 5.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  A versatile, experienced offensive lineman has committed to join the Colorado State football team. Temple graduate transfer Vincent Picozzi tweeted Saturday night that he would transfer to the Rams, where he'll be used to help build the offensive line. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Picozzi will have one season left to play after making 34 career starts at Temple. He's taken snaps at all five offensive line positions in his career, including more than 200 snaps at three different positions. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  2020 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): P - Ryan Stonehouse, Sr., Colorado State,...Stonehouse, a senior, becomes a three-time first-team selection, the only Ram to do so in the Mountain West. He is the NCAA's career leader in punting average at 46.8 yards over 186 career attempts. He averaged 45.3 yards this season, placing eight of his 26 attempts inside the 20 yard line, with nine punts of 50 yards or better. - Colorado State Football
