As of 4:00 PM, they're all in

Colorado came into signing day with two known players yet to make their signatures known, and one that might have made his signature known. Those two players, Tommy Gallarda and Ben Guidugli, signed with other schools. But the biggest fish, the nation's No.21 quarterback, Cody Hawkins, signed with Colorado. CU is only waiting on one more player to fax in their letter of intent.

Since our 11 AM update, CU has received signatures from eight more players.

Michael Sipili played in the east-west all-state game in Hawaii this year after being named all-state. He is considered the top linebacker prospect from Hawaii this year. Sipili spoke of why he chose the Buffs over the school he was previously committed to, Oregon State. "When it came down to it, it was a just a better fit for me," he explained. "It also came down to the fact that my position coach will be Brian Cabral."

As a senior, Jason Brace was named first team all-area. He is projected as a dfeensive tackle in Boulder.

Marquez Herrod registered 48 tackles as a senior, with 15 for losses including five quarterback sacks, six quarterback hurries, one forced fumble, two blocked kicks and one forced fumble.

As a senior, B.J. Beatty had 17 sacks and was named first team all-state and state defensive player of the year.
