Colorado hosted nine official visitors this past weekend, securing three commitments from the group for Mike MacIntyre's 2014 recruiting class.
A big defensive back from Texas Jamarkese Williams made the trip to Boulder from Temple High School, this past weekend's weather surprised the Lone Star athlete.
"I thought it would be a lot colder than it was," laughed Williams. "I thought Colorado was a beautiful place, it wasn't what I expected it to be, it was much better than I thought."? Williams, a 6-foot-2, 177 pound athlete, is apparently being recruited to play corner for the Buffs.
According to Williams, he has an offer from Texas A&M in track, an offer from Colorado in football and he has received interest from several schools around Texas.
The Buff coaching staff apparently made an impact on the Texas' visitor.
"I really like the coaches at Colorado," Williams said. "They seem like they really know what they are doing, I'm looking forward to getting to know them better over the next few weeks."
Did Williams come close to committing to the Buffs this past weekend? "
I wanted to commit," Williams said. "I plan on coming back up sometime in January for an unofficial visit, I might commit then."
There appears to be one thing that Williams wanted to do on this past trip he wasn't able to accomplish.
"I wanted to meet Ralphie," Williams laughed. "I have heard so much about CU's traditions and history. I thought it would be cool to meet one of the best mascots in the country."
