Rams signed Colorado WR Nelson Spruce.

Spruce (6'1/206) set a Pac 12 record for career receptions (294) as a four-year starter for the Buffs, also setting CU school records in receiving yards (3,347) and receiving TDs (23). He was exposed badly at the Combine, running 4.69 with a 9-foot-6 broad jump and just 12 bench-press reps. Sure handed and functional only in the short to intermediate areas, Spruce will need to show special teams and slot receiver value in order to become an NFL factor.

Colorado HC Mike MacIntyre indicated that he is not concerned about graduate QB Davis Webb's potential transfer.

"[Webb]’s told me he’s coming time after time, so I just trust what he says," MacIntyre explained. The former Red Raider gunslinger signed a non-binding financial aid agreement with the Buffaloes earlier this offseason, but Webb's heart might be wandering about right now. He visited Cal over the weekend and ESPN.com later reported that he would also visit Auburn. MacIntyre referred to the Wordwide Leader's report as "erroneous." Expect this situation to sort itself out over the coming weeks. It should be interesting to see whether Webb actually ends up sticking to his Colorado commitment. Signs at this juncture seem to be saying otherwise, but sometimes smoke is just smoke, rather than an indicator of fire.

Colorado graduate QB Davis Webb will visit Auburn.

Webb was committed to a transfer from Texas Tech to Colorado in late January and while that is still the case, he is now expanding his options. Sometimes the heart just wanders. The 6-foot-5, 209-pounder visited Cal over the weekend and it now looks like he is also considering take a shot at the flaming pile of depression that is the Auburn quarterback competition. He hasn't publicly set a date for his visit to the Tigers, but told ESPN.com that he would head south soon to check out what Gus Malzahn's cooking up at Auburn. During Saturday's A-Day spring game, the offenses went a combined 1-for-22 on third down. We wouldn't blame Webb if he thinks he can waltz in and win the starting job. His Colorado commitment is not binding, should he choose another school. Webb played in 23 games at Texas Tech, passing for 5,557 yards (61.4% completions) with a 46/22 TD/INT ratio in that space.

Colorado graduate QB Davis Webb is visiting Cal this weekend.

While Webb committed to a Colorado transfer from Texas Tech back in January, he is not bound to that commitment. Cal is a logical avenue for the 6-foot-5, 220-pound quarterback to consider given that Jared Goff is headed for the green pastures of the NFL and he would have an opportunity to immediately compete for the starting job. In 23 games with the Red Raiders, he threw for 5,557 yards (61.4% completions) with a 46/22 TD/INT ratio. He lost his starting job to Patrick Mahomes prior to the 2015 campaign. Regardless of whether he ultimately sticks to his Colorado commitment or flips over to Cal, Webb will be able to play immediately in 2016.

Colorado suspended redshirt senior DT Samson Kafovalu indefinitely following his arrest on suspicion of obstructing an officer on Friday morning.

Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly addressed Kafovalu's arrest. According to her, bouncers at the Sundown Saloon called the police after the 6-foot-4, 275-pound redshirt senior was denied entrance to the bar and refused to cooperate. He exhibited signs of extreme intoxication at the time. When officers arrived on the scene, they attempted to shuttle Kafovalu into a taxi. He was taken into custody after he acted aggressively toward one of the officers. Colorado immediately suspended the defensive tackle. This was his third negative encounter with law enforcement.

The Denver Post's Mitchell Byars reports that Colorado senior DE Nathaniel Robbins was arrested on suspicion of 18 counts, including six counts of assault.

Where to even begin. According to an arrest affidavit, officers responded to a call at 3:42 a.m. regarding a dispute between Robbins and his girlfriend. The incident began when she looked through his phone while he was sleeping on her couch and discovered evidence that he was likely cheating on her. At which point she threw a glass of water at him and asked him to leave. He instead began to "throw her around the room," according to the affidavit. Once officers arrived, one pulled a firearm and demanded Robbins surrender. The 6-foot-5, 252-pounder instead tackled the officer and one other. Eventual backup would subdue him. Probably needless to say, Robbins has been suspended indefinitely.

Colorado WR Nelson Spruce ran his forties in the low 4.5s at his pro day.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound's speed is often questioned, but his production never has been. Spruce caught 89 passes for 1,053 yards and four touchdowns last season and had 106 catches for 1,198 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014. "I'm told besides catching the ball well, he ran very good routes," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote of Spruce's pro day.

Colorado T Stephane Nembot had private interviews with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals after his pro day.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Nembot clocked a 5.19 second forty. That's two-tenths of a second better than his Combine time (he checked into that event at an elephantine 6-foot-6, 322 pounds). In Boulder this week, Nembot added a 4.82 second short shuttle and a 7.88 second 3-cone. "I'm told he was impressive during drills," Pauline wrote.

Colorado sophomore LB Derek McCartney will miss Friday's practice after donating bone marrow.

In your "Restored Faith in Humanity" story of the day, McCartney took part in HC Mike MacIntyre's "Be the Match" program and donated bone marrow to a cancer patient. MacIntyre was rightfully moved by the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder's gesture, saying, "He’s an exceptional young man. He’s going to get his master’s before he’s gone in two years and he’s an excellent leader on our team." MacIntyre also said one other thing about the sophomore: "He's going to save a life."

Colorado promoted director of player development Darian Hagan to RB coach.

Hagan's a Buffalo through-and-through, having quarterbacked the team in the early 90's. After hanging up his cleats, he served as an offensive assistant for Colorado from 2005 to 2011. He's served as director of player development in the four years since. In a statement, HC Mike MacIntyre said, "Darian brings a lot of pride and passion to our football program with his history here, and also brings expertise to our running backs. In shifting our offensive staff assignments a little bit, he will give us another dimension in our running game and working with our running backs."

Texas Tech graduate QB Davis Webb transferred to Colorado.

The tea leaves have been pointing this way since Webb announced he'd be leaving the Red Raiders. It's an obvious coup for the Buffaloes, who are expected to be without three-year starting QB Sefo Liufau in 2016 season because of a Lisfranc injury. "I just know it's a good fit with Colorado," Webb said. "I really like what Coach Mac (Mike MacIntyre) and (OC) Coach (Brian) Lindgren are doing with the offense. ... I will get plenty of exposure to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL." The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Webb owns a 46/22 career TD/INT rate. He lost his job to Patrick Mahomes last year. As a grad, Webb is immediately eligible to play. TT HC Kliff Kingsbury has said the 21-year-old has the tools to be a top-five overall NFL pick due to his size, arm and mind. "He has a chance to be very special," Kingsbury said in 2013.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock called Colorado T Stephane Nembot "a raw, developmental prospect."

Nembot's playing in Saturday's Shrine Game. He's already been hit with a holding call, so that's not great. Though to be fair, he's still learning the position. The 6-foot-7, 300-pounder initially joined the Buffaloes as a defensive tackle. "He has no clue what he's doing," Mayock wrote. Ouch. The analyst is still intrigued, though, as Nembot's got the kind of huge frame that scouts will feel they can massage into greatness.

Per CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, Colorado T Stephane Nembot "looks the part and has light feet, but his balance issues could keep him from sticking at the next level."

"He was called out by the coaches several times for playing too high and had struggle adjusting to multiple rushers," Brugler wrote of his observations from Shrine Game practices. The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Nembot was a four-year starter in the Pac-12, which is pretty remarkable if you know his story. Nembot, a native of Cameroon, speaks English, French, Spanish and 11 dialects from African tribes. Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Nembot "is a middle round choice with starting potential at the next level."

Colorado redshirt senior WR Nelson Spruce will miss the Shrine Game due to a foot injury.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris reports that while the foot injury is of the minor variety, Spruce won't be testing it out (or risking further injury) by playing in the East-West Shrine Game on January 23. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound redshirt senior caught 89 passes for 1,053 yards and four touchdowns this past season. He's considered a potential Day 3 selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, as he's not exactly a burner.

Texas Tech graduate QB Davis Webb is taking an official visit to Colorado over the weekend.

In addition, Davis told FOX Sports that he expects to have an official visit at Auburn in February. Webb announced his intention to transfer from Texas Tech last month. "I'm just looking for the right school, right fit and for the opportunity to compete for the starting job and to win a lot of games," Webb said. He hopes to make a decision by the first week of March. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Webb posted a 46/22 career TD/INT rate before losing his job to the gifted Patrick Mahomes last year. "He has a chance to be very special," HC Kliff Kingsbury said in 2013. "He has one of the quickest releases and strongest arms I've been around. Very smart, intellectual thinker. Processes things very quickly. Sees the field. Great at checking to the right place."
