Cooper Bateman continues to draw attention from across the country.

The Cottonwood junior quarterback has already received offers from as far away as the University of Maryland and from programs as prominent as Boise State, Utah and BYU.

Now, he can add Colorado and Florida to his list of options.

Bateman received an offer from Florida Sunday night and the Buffaloes Monday morning, bringing his total to six.

Bateman threw for 2,484 yards and 25 touchdowns last season, as he guided the Colts through a rebuilding season. As a sophomore in 2010, the Colts finished 10-1 behind 1,822 yards and 23 touchdowns.
