Colorado redshirt junior Nelson Spruce told reporters he expects to return to school in 2015 rather than entering the NFL draft.

"It's something that is not even in my mind until we finish this season," Spruce said. "I'll have to sit down, but I plan on being back next year." In terms of production Spruce is one of the nation's leaders, posting 99 catches for 1,091 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Nelson Spruce is a "good looking player," according to an AFC West scout.

Spruce currently leads the nation with 90 catches and has racked up 1002 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. It's not certain if the 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior will declare for the draft after the season. If Spruce does indeed declare, the aforementioned scout said that he was "not sure if [Spruce is] better suited to outside the numbers or in the slot." Expect to hear more reports about Spruce's draftability should he declare.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Nelson Spruce on Saturday broke the school's record for most receptions in a season with 90.

Spruce finished with 13 catches for 138 yards in a loss to Washington, breaking the record of 83 catches, set last year by Paul Richardson, now of the Seahawks. Spruce is the eighth player in school history to reach 1,000 receiving yards in a season, and he still has three games remaining.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Nelson Spruce leads the FBS in catches per game with 10.14.

These numbers might be a bit inflated by a 19 catch double overtime game against Cal, going for 179 yards and three touchdowns. Spruce is obviously draft-eligible and is a longtime starter and a current team captain.

The Pac-12 publicly reprimanded and fined Colorado HC Mike MacIntyre $10,000 for "his inappropriate conduct towards the officiating crew at the conclusion of Colorado’s game with Oregon State" Saturday.

MacIntyre chased down the officiating crew following a 36-31 loss, screaming about questionable calls made during the game. "The public postgame conduct by Colorado head football coach Mike MacIntyre was completely unacceptable," said commissioner Larry Scott in a statement. "Such misconduct violates Conference policy and this behavior will not be tolerated. The Conference assigns a high priority for administrators, coaches and student-athletes to support its officiating program. Chasing and confronting an official or officiating crew after the contest fails to meet these high standards." MacIntyre declined to comment about his actions after the game.

TFY Draft insider's Tony Pauline reports Colorado redshirt junior T Stephane Nembot is "giving indications he'll enter the draft once the season's over."

Pauline compared Nembot to third-round pick Billy Turner over the summer, writing that the former is "long, athletic, (and) versatile." Turner was known for his powerful functional strength. If Nembot can show he's just as fortified, the NFL will welcome his decision to jump.

Colorado redshirt sophomore OL Shane Callahan is eligible to play immediately after transferring from Auburn.

Callahan did not join Colorado until July and started practicing with the team on Monday. The NCAA granted his immediately eligibility due to family reasons. Callahan is from the Colorado area.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline believes Colorado senior WR Tyler McCulloch is a prospect to watch in 2014.

"After showing flashes of NFL ability in 2012, he seemed to fall off the map last year," Pauline wrote. "With Paul Richardson gone lets see if McCulloch steps up and takes on a big time role this season." The jumbo 6-foot-5, 215-pound McCulloch missed spring practices healing from a chronic stress reaction in his foot. McCulloch, whom Pauline gives a preseason UDFA grade, is tied for 36th in receptions (58) and 45th in receiving yards (670) all-time at Colorado.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline thinks Colorado redshirt senior C Daniel Munyer would be a "terrific fit for a zone/motion blocking scheme."

Munyer teams with LT Stephane Nembot (4th-round projection) to give Colorado a two-fifths of a solid offensive line. "Munyer is not spoken about by scouts but has been a productive starter at both guard and center," Pauline wrote. "He has size limitations but would be a terrific fit for a zone/motion blocking scheme." Pauline projects the 6-foot-2, 295-pound Munyer, CU’s starting right offensive guard, as a center at the next level. Munyer was selected preseason second-team All-Pac-12 by Athlon Sports and was a third-team choice by Phil Steele.

Colorado OL senior Daniel Munyer "must play with greater focus and physicality as a senior to earn NFL draft consideration," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Munyer came into last year on the NFL's radar, but he struggled with consistency. He's toggled between guard and center during his career, but the Colorado staff is kicking around the idea of shifting the 6-foot-2, 290-pounder to left tackle this season. He has the athleticism for that, but won't ever play a down of tackle in the NFL due to his size. "Munyer flashes initial quickness, good lateral agility and the balance to handle run and pass-blocking responsibilities," Rang wrote. "He's an intriguing athlete who can fire off the snap and surprise second-level defenders with his quickness and agility. Munyer was recognized as a team captain this spring. If he takes this role seriously, Munyer could be on the verge of a breakout season that could result in his earning a selection in the 2015 NFL draft."

Colorado senior CB Greg Henderson "is a fluid athlete with balance, agility and speed who has shown with improving awareness and mitts for the interception," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Henderson has a decent chance to break the Buffs' stretch of not having a drafted DB since 2011 (CBs Jimmy Smith and Jalil Brown). "Henderson has a broad frame with good overall musculature, actually appearing a little bigger on film than his listed size," wrote Rang of the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder. "He registered a team-leading 10 passes broken up a season ago despite missing the first two games (and being hampered in more) with a knee strain. Scouts are intrigued by Henderson because despite last year's injury, he has steadily improved throughout his collegiate career." Henderson has already started 32 career games for the Buffaloes.

Junior DT Josh Tupou "is the most intriguing of Colorado's potential NFL prospect," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang, though he's still quite raw.

Tupou collected just 38 tackles -- two for loss -- and half a sack in 2013, but scouts are intrigued not by his counting stats, but by his intriguing blend of size, strength and athleticism. The 6-foot-2, 320-pounder "generated some buzz among scouts as an underclassman to watch," according to Rang, due to his ability to clog the middle and stuff the run. "While not particularly nimble, Tupou offers at least average initial quickness, good strength at the point of attack and pursues with passion," Rang wrote. "Tupou can push the pocket with good upper body strength on the bull-rush and gets his hands into passing lanes. His frame, physicality and effort could intrigue 4-3 and 3-4 teams, alike, as a developmental interior prospect."

Draft insider Tony Pauline compared Colorado redshirt junior T Stephane Nembot to third-round pick Billy Turner.

Nembot is "long, athletic, (and) versatile," per Pauline. Turner was known for his powerful functional strength, something that is growing in importance at the NFL level. A large portion of Nembot's playing time has come at right tackle.

Coach Mike MacIntyre reported on Twitter that the University of Colorado has begun construction on their $143 million dollar complex.

"Construction has begun on the $143 million dollar complex!," Coach MacIntyre tweeted. Having a plan in place for a new complex will give MacIntyre some selling power when trying to recruit incoming prospects, who are constantly comparing CU's facilities to those at other universities.

Seahawks selected Colorado WR Paul Richardson with the No. 45 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Richardson (6-foot, 175) spent three years at Colorado, hauling in 156 passes for 2,412 yards (15.5 YPR) and 21 TDs. A lightweight burner with 4.4 speed and a 10-foot-2 broad jump, Richardson's game is all about running by people. He is a finesse wideout who needs to add bulk to play a high-volume NFL receiving role. Richardson tore both his left ACL and MCL at separate points during the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Richardson has the potential to be an upgrade opposite over Doug Baldwin opposite Percy Harvin, but will likely open 2014 no higher than the No. 3 receiver.
