(Jack Eberhard/
Cherry Creek two-way standout Alec Pell had previously announced that he was going to play football at Boise State. Five days ago, Pell received a scholarship offer from the University of Colorado. Monday, he decided to accept it. Pell took to Twitter on the first day of the 2018 fall season to announce that he'll stay in Colorado rather than head to Idaho. Pell accounted for over 750 all-purpose yards for the Bruins last year and scored nine touchdowns. His announcement comes just a day after his teammate Michael Lynn announced that he would play football at the University of Nebraska. Like everyone in Colorado, Cherry Creek officially begins practice on Monday. The Bruins will be in action on Aug. 23 when they travel to Colorado Springs to take on Doherty. With last night's commitment to Nebraska, Cherry Creek now has five Division I football commits for the class of 2019.
