Three-star tight end Mitchell Parsons (Parker, Colo./Chaparral) and Colorado are no longer an item. At least for now.

Parsons gave the word to Colorado coaches that he planned to not only take official visits to other schools but also consider other options. Parsons has been offered by Arizona State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Northern Colorado, and California, Washington and Oklahoma have been showing interest.

“I talked to the coaches [Wednesday] before I announced everything,” said Parsons, who announced via Twitter that he no longer is committed to the Buffaloes. “Some of the stress has been lifted, but a lot of it has been put back on. My Twitter feed blew up.”
