Funny how things have changed in two short years.
Back in 2007 at this time, Colorado wide receiver Josh Smith had just joined the program and was starting a series of conversations to try to coax his nephew, running back Darrell Scott, to follow him to Boulder.
These days the tables are turned. Smith has declared his intention to transfer and Scott is trying to talk him into staying.
I spoke with Darrell Scott outside the Dal Ward Center today for a few minutes. He said he isn’t ready to do any interviews right now because he knows many of the questions will be about Smith’s decision to transfer. Scott said he doesn’t want to talk about the issue until it’s decided one way or the other, and right now he is still thinking there is a chance Smith will stay with the Buffs.
As for whether Smith’s decision will have any impact on Scott, he said, “I’m staying here.”
