Buffs hosting North Carolina CB

The Colorado football program will host a handful of recruits this weekend for a pivotal game against Kansas State. One of them is three-star cornerback with excellent size and speed. Read more inside.

Josh Hunter, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound cornerback prospect from Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, N.C. is among five prospects visiting Boulder this weekend to watch the Buffs take on Kansas State in a game that could go a long way toward deciding Colorado's postseason fate.

Hunter is just the sort of cornerback prospect CU coaches covet because of his size, reach and athleticism. There is just one problem. Hunter already has said he plans to commit to North Carolina in the near future.

It appears CU coaches have a major sales job to do if they hope to change his mind.

"I feel like I'm committed right now," Hunter told Scout.com earlier this month. "I'm not going to change my mind."

One of the other four prospects joining Hunter this week is already committed to the Buffs. Quarterback Clark Evans will visit the CU campus, where he hopes to be tossing a boatload of touchdown passes in the next four years.

Evans, a three-start quarterback from Los Alamitos High School in Southern California, committed to CU in July and might join coaches this week in trying to convince other recruits to join him.

Keenan Graham, a four-star defensive from Las Vegas; Bryce McNeal, a four-star wide receiver from Minneapolis, who recently de-committed from Michigan, and Colton Nash, a three-star defensive end from Sulpher Springs, Texas, also are scheduled to visit the Buffs this weekend.
