Nate Landman (Brandon Huffman)

BuffStampede Signing Day Predictions

On the eve of signing day, a number of Colorado targets from the Class of 2017 have yet to announce their final decision...

Offers: Arizona, Boise State, Cal, Colorado, Colorado State, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, San Diego State, Utah State, Washington State and Wyoming

Finalists: Cal and Colorado

The Skinny: The NorCal and Bay Area Defensive Player of the Year in 2016, Landman has been verbally committed to the Buffaloes since late July. Justin Wilcox and his new staff at Cal made a late run at him and convinced him to take a trip to Berkeley last weekend.

Prediction: Colorado

Offers: Arizona State, Colorado, Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisville, Memphis, Nevada, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State and UNLV

Finalists: Arizona State and Colorado

The Skinny: Poplawski's dad, grandfather, great-grandfather and other family members attended Arizona State, and three of his Saguaro teammates are committed to the Sun Devils. But Poplawski took an official visit to Colorado last weekend, and while he has avoided interviews, by all-accounts that trip exceeded his expectations. Poplawski is a versatile tight end that could fill a remaining need for the Buffs this cycle.

Prediction: Colorado

Offers: Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Illinois, Oregon, Oregon State, Texas A&M, UCLA, UNLV, USC and Washington State.

Finalists: Colorado and USC

The Skinny: One of the more intriguing prospects in the West region this cycle, Lang is on the Trojans' commit list. He admitted, though, Colorado became a legit option that deserved some serious thought after he took a trip to Boulder last weekend.

Prediction: USC

Offers: Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Cal, Colorado, Eastern Washington, Illinois, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, San Jose State, Texas A&M, UCLA, UNLV, USC, Utah and Washington.

Finalists: Alabama, Colorado, Ohio State, Oregon and USC

The Skinny: Falo delayed his decision from Monday to signing day in part because he said his decision required more thought. Falo's family connection to Colorado has made the Buffs a top candidate throughout his recruitment, but his trip to USC two-and-a-half weeks ago and his Oregon visit last weekend both wowed him.

Prediction: USC

Offers: Cal, Colorado, Fresno State, New Mexico, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, UNLV and Utah.

Finalists: Cal, Colorado, San Diego State and Utah

The Skinny: Colorado was in the market for an offensive lineman again after Xavier Newman flipped to Baylor, and Roddick put himself back on the market after Sonny Dykes was fired this winter. A perfect match? Roddick visited Boulder for the third time this past weekend is set to announce his decision on Wednesday.

Prediction: Colorado

Offers: Arizona, BYU, Cal, Colorado, Colorado State, Eastern Washington, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Northern Colorado, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, UC-Davis, UNLV, Utah, Utah State, Washington and Washington State

Finalists: Cal, Colorado, Utah and Washington

The Skinny: The Buffaloes' sales-pitch to Ford to star as a defensive lineman in Boulder appeared to be a bit too late. He had already developed strong interest in some other Pac-12 programs before Colorado offered, but Ford did take a trip to Boulder last weekend.. It is a tough call here between the Utes and Huskies.

Prediction: Washington

Offers: Air Force, Arizona, Arkansas, Baylor, Cal, Colorado, Colorado State, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, LSU, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Rice, SMU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas State, Texas Tech, Tulane, UCLA, USC and UTSA.

FInalists: Colorado, Nebraska and UTSA

The Skinny: A true nose tackle prospect, Daniels maintained high interest in the Buffaloes until late in the process but he recently left the group chat that includes Colorado's commits and top targets. He will announce his final decision around 9 am (MT) on signing day on ESPNU.

Prediction: Nebraska

Offers: Baylor, Boise State, Colorado, Houston, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Notre Dame and Texas

Finalists: Baylor, Colorado and Mississippi

The Skinny: Miller has turned down interview requests in recent days with the hopes of adding some suspense to his signing day ceremony. He has been on the Buffs' commit list since June but took January trips to Waco and Oxford.

Prediction: Colorado
