Daigh, a two-star prospect on Scout.com, is the first in a talented group of Mullen teammates to commit. He said it is a relief to end recruiting and be able to concentrate on his senior season.
"It feels real good not to have to think about it," he said. "I know where I'm going."
Daigh said Colorado's coaching staff was the primary reason he decided to be a Buff over offers from Colorado State and Wyoming. He said he is thrilled with the opportunity to play for Cabral, a legendary linebackers coach.
"It's incredible," Daigh said. "That was one of the big factors that had me commit. Anyone who has been at their school for 22 years through four coaching changes is a real good coach. The position coach is the guy you will be spending the most time with. So that was a big factor in where I wanted to go."
