Colorado's momentum on the recruiting trail continues to build.

On Saturday afternoon, receiver Jaylon Jackson, a four-star prospect from Cedar Hill, Texas, gave his pledge to the Buffaloes for the 2017 class.

Jackson announced his decision on Twitter: " After hard and long prayers, talking with my coaches and family, I have decided to verbally commit to The University of Colorado!!!! #GoBuffs #CU17 Rise of the Buffaloes"

The Buffaloes certainly seem to be on the rise. After finishing strong with the Class of 2016 that they signed in February, the Buffs now have three top-notch commits for the 2017 class.

In late February, Cherry Creek High School teammates Dante Sparaco and Jonathan Van Diest gave their verbal commitments. Sparaco and Van Diest, both three-star recruits, are two of the top in-state recruits for the 2017 class.

Jackson is a 5-foot-10, 170-pound receiver who had several scholarship offers, including from CU's Pac-12 rivals Arizona State and Washington State.

Jackson was one of a couple dozen players in Boulder this weekend for junior day. He missed his junior year with a torn ACL.
