Former Colorado running back Rodney Stewart is the third senior from the 2011 team to receive an invitation to a postseason all-star game.

Stewart will play in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star game Jan. 16 in Tucson, Ariz. The game is in its second year and was known as the Eastham Energy College Football Game last year.

Stewart's former teammates, quarterback Tyler Hansen and guard Ryan Miller, have been invited to play in the East-West Shrine game in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Jan. 21.

Stewart's CU career ended a few quarters prematurely in November when he was knocked out of the season finale at Utah with a sprained ankle. He has recovered from the injury. Stewart is second on the Buffs' career rushing charts with 3,598 yards. He is first in carries (809) and receptions by a running back (93).

After joining to the 2008 recruiting class as late addition, Stewart built a reputation as the consummate overachiever at CU. He outplayed five-star recruit Darrell Scott and narrowly missed becoming the 27th player in NCAA history to rush for more than 3,000 yards and produced more than 1,000 receiving yards in a career.

Embree adds

21st commit

Marques Mosley, a cornerback/wide receiver prospect from Upland, Calif., became the 21st player in the 2012 recruiting cycle to give CU coach Jon Embree and oral commitment Thursday.

Mosley is the second player from his high school to commit to the Buffs and he might not be the last.

He visited CU in December with Upland running back Donta Abron, who previously committed to Embree, and fullback prospect Christian Powell who is considering the Buffs.

Mosley is 6-foot, 185-pounds and is likely to play cornerback at the college level. He chose the Buffs over Nebraska, Iowa State, Arizona, Oregon State and Michigan State.

Embree had 21 commitments previously, but safety Ma'ne Manaea from Lakewood, Wash., has reopened his recruitment after he said CU coaches asked him to grayshirt next fall.
