Colorado snags pledge

Colorado snags another quality pledge, this from the Pacific Northwest.

The job that Tad Boyle and his staff are doing on the West Coast is extremely impressive. Coming off of a very solid 2012 class, now the Buffs again are doing on the recruiting trail in 2013.

The latest prospect to commit to the school is three-star wing Tre'Shaun Lexing. The Tacoma (Wash.) Lincoln standout picked the school while on his official visit. Lexing confirmed the commitment via text message.

About his commitment, Lexing said, "I love the coaches and the players. Also the campus is really nice and it is just a good fit for me."

Lexing is a 6-foot-6 do it all wing who can play any of the three perimeter positions. His athleticism and ability to handle the ball while attacking the mid-range helped his stock explode during the Adidas Invitational in July.

This is the third commitment for the Buffaloes in the 2013 class. He joins another quality three-star wing in Jaron Hopkins and athletic power forward Dustin Thomas.

This class's strength on the perimeter with scorers who have athleticism complements well the tough front court class brought in by the Boyle and his staff during the 2012 recruiting cycle.
