Pomona High School running back Max Borghi, who had been committed to Colorado, announced on Twitter on Thursday night that he is committing to Washington State instead.

One of the top in-state players for the 2018 recruiting class, Borghi wrote on Twitter: "After an abundant deal of thought and discussion with my family, mentors and Coach Madden, I have decided to attend Washington State University to further my academic and football career. I am grateful for the opportunity Colorado offered me, and want to thank Coach MacIntyre, and the whole CU staff. With that being said, I am looking forward to repping that crimson and grey. A huge thanks to Coach Leach and Mastro for this great opportunity, and truly believing in my skill set."

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Borghi originally committed to CU on Feb. 23. He is rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com. One of the most explosive athletes in the state, Borghi has rushed for 1,822 yards and 23 touchdowns over the past two years, while adding 998 yards and 10 touchdowns receiving. He's also dangerous as a punt and kick returner.

Borghi is recovering from a torn ACL, suffered in the Class 5A state quarterfinals last year with the Panthers, but expects to be ready for the upcoming season.

Borghi did not explain his decision to switch his commitment and said he's not taking interviews. CU did, however, add two other running backs to its commitment list last week, as Jarek Broussard from Dallas and Deion Smith from Houston gave verbal commitments to the Buffs.
