Simmons chooses Buffs

Colorado received at least two commitments over the weekend from a group of five official visitors. One of those pledges came from a three-star junior college receiver.

Andre Simmons, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound, wide receiver from Independence Junior College told he committed to Colorado during his visit this weekend.

"I committed," Simmons said. "I loved it.

Simmons was traveling home tonight when we caught him briefly in the airport. He said he still plans to take other visits but he plans to be a Buff.

Simmons has some work to do in the classroom between now and next fall, but he is much less of a risk than many other junior college players who have attempted to get in to CU in the past a football program source said.

Simmons also is being recruited by CU conference rivals Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri as well as Arkansas, Arizona and others.

We'll have more on Simmons later.
