It's been a busy few days for the Colorado football team on the recruiting trail.

On Sunday, running back Deion Smith, from Second Baptist High School in Houston, announced that he has verbally committed to CU for the 2018 class.

Smith is the 11th player committed for 2018, and the third to be announced since Thursday.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Smith, who visited CU earlier in the week, has a three-star rating from both Rivals.com and Scout.com. According to Scout.com, Smith has 15 other scholarship offers, including from Boise State, Colorado State, Indiana, Notre Dame, TCU, UCLA and Utah.

Last season at Second Baptist, Smith ran for 1,223 yards and 19 touchdowns on 122 carries, averaging 10.0 yards per rush. He also caught 22 passes for 494 yards (22.5 yards per catch) and five touchdowns.

Also this week, Davion Taylor, an inside linebacker at Coahoma Community College in Mississippi made it official that he has committed to the Buffs. Taylor told Scout.com that he actually committed in April. He plans to enroll at CU in January.

On Friday, athlete Jarek Broussard, from Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas, announced his verbal commitment.

The Buffs have had five players commit so far in June.
