Colorado has landed their first pure athlete of the class. With their ninth verbal commitment they picked up the services of <b>Charlie Sherman III</b> out of Foothill High in Sacramento, California. Charlie plays an option quarterback for his school but he has been recruited to CU as a wide receiver or a safety. He is a winner in every sense of the word.
