Colorado needed a bigger back and they got a good one. Coming into the trip, Demetrius Sumler said that his college choice had come down to CU and Boise State. He decided to get it out of the way this weekend by becoming a Buff. As a senior, Sumler finished with close to 2,500 yards rushing and 33 touchdowns. He was named first team all-league, CIF and North County. Sumler was also named league player of the year.
Borders is said to have not had any other offers. But, he is from a school that is not well known and they had a bad season. That is said to have hindered his recruitment. As a senior, Borders was named first team all-city and academic all-state.
The Buffs secured another linebacker from Hawaii as former Oregon State commit, Michael Sipili committed to CU. Sipili becomes the second player in this class from Hawaii, both linebackers, as he joins B.J. Beatty.
Colorado also needed defensive backs very badly. CU got a commitment from Chapelle Brown who could help immediately at corner. As a senior, he had 42 catches for 718 yards and nine touchdowns. He also had 10 carries for 118 yards and one touchdown. On defense, he had 25 tackles and seven interceptions.
The Buffs also received a commitment from another player but he has asked that the commitment remain silent until next week.
