Colorado had just three scholarship inside linebackers during practices this spring, so with the 2017 and 2018 recruiting classes, the Buffaloes are trying to restock the position. They took another step in the right direction in that quest on Saturday when Clyde Moore joined the commitment list.
Moore, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound inside linebacker recruit from Newport Beach (Calif.) Corona Del Mar, considers his physicalness, instincts, and ability to be a vocal leader to be his best attributes as a player.
Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado State, Hawaii, San Jose State and Utah State also extended an offer to Moore, and he was drawing interest from USC, before Saturday's decision.
"Their coaches are just great overall," Moore said of the Buffaloes after attending their satellite camp at the University of Redlands earlier this month. "Colorado is on the rise, getting better every year, and I know they are Pac-12 South champs. And the campus is beautiful, from what I hear, so I can't wait to see it."
Moore told BuffStampede.com recently he plans to take an unofficial visit to Boulder later this month. We will have more on his commitment to Colorado shortly.
Jon Van Diest and Nate Landman will join the Buffaloes' inside linebacking corps with the start of the summer bridge program on Monday, and fellow 2017 signee Carson Wells could also potentially factor in at inside linebacker.
