    Givens redshirted in 2008. In the spring of 2009, he earned the starting RT spot and held onto the spot for the entire 2009 season (although he missed a couple games for personal reasons). For 2010, CU is counting on Givens to take the next step in his development and become a dominant OT for the Buffs.

    As much as he could never get his act together in Boulder to contribute he is still a big, nasty, quality athlete. It might be interesting to see what he does to some of those D2 defensive linemen he will be facing.

    Playing at a D2 school shouldn't be a problem since he had a D2 head coach for a while already.

    I know he got in trouble a lot but if you ever talk to the guy he's really nice. When i met met him he seemed like a nice guy who made some really bad decisions.

    i wonder how the concussion problems he had early in his career affected his personality and his decision making. Hopefully this works out for him.

    I wish things had worked out better for him at CU. None-the-less, I wish him the best of luck.

    CU has not done well developing the 3/4 star linemen they keep in state. Givens, Harris, Miller are examples of guys who haven't turned out near as well as hoped. We really need to start hitting on these guys.
