Buffs Land Six Commitments

The Dan Hawkins era is well underway at the University of Colorado. His regime got a huge boost this weekend as the staff received six commitments out of the 15 official visitors in Boulder. Inside, we take a look at the newest Buffs.

Sources close to the situation are reporting that the following players have committed to Colorado...

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.

The team was in desperate need of offensive tackles and they landed two in Quintin Borders and Aaron Mason.

Mason, a JC prospect, has two years to play two and chose CU over offers from Nebraska, Washington, Wyoming, Missouri and Baylor. Before committing, he was a soft pledge to Wyoming.

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.
