Butte quarterback Nelson Fishback has verbally committed to Western Kentucky.
Fishback will wait to make the signing offical until he hears from Colorado later this week. Perhaps the Buffaloes can steer Fishback their way, but on April 21st, the signal caller announced on his twitter page, "After a lot of thought I have decided to attend Western Kentucky University!" Therefore, all signs point to WKU.
The Hilltoppers, coached by Bobby Petrino, belong to the Sun Belt Conference, which is a Division 1 Bowl Subdivision school.
Other colleges interested in Fishback's services include, among many others, Michigan and N.C. State.
Just this past season, Fishback threw for nearly 1,500 yards and 12 touchdowns in a run heavy Roadrunners offense.
