Signing day kicks off with a new LB

There are three new Colorado football players already bright and early this morning, and two are slated to play on the defensive side of the ball. The other will help fill the big depth problem at wide receiver. Get inside for more.

Derrick Webb, a linebacker from Memphis, informed via text message this morning he has signed and sent his national letter of intent to the Colorado football offices.

The three-star prospect and 23rd-ranked weakside linebacker in the country chose the Buffs over Middle Tennessee, Ole Miss and Kentucky among others.

Deji Olatoye, a safety prospect from Dublin-Scioto High School in Ohio, also faxed his letter on intent to Boulder. Olatoye has only been playing football for a few years and has a big upside with tons of athleticism. He went from a one-star player to a three-star after committing to the Buffs, proof that such things can happen to Colorado recruits, too.

Dublin-Scioto High School coach Karl Johnson confirmed Olatoye's signing.

Much speculation has centered around Andre Simmons over the past week after he took an official visit to Kansas State, but the four-star product of Independence Community College in Kansas informed also via text message that he has decided to play the rest of his career in Boulder.

Simmons was asked if he was going to attend Kansas State? "Naw, CU," he said.

Check back throughout the day for more updates.
