Colorado's impressive recruiting class got even better on Saturday.

The Buffaloes announced that defensive end Terrance Lang signed a letter of intent on Saturday, giving them a player who had been committed to Pac-12 rival Southern California.

"I'm super excited about coming to Boulder," Lang said in a CU press release. "I really liked the family environment, everything with the coaches from coach (Darian) Hagan to coach (Mike) MacIntyre and the players, it just felt like the right fit. Colorado has a beautiful campus and all of the surrounding area as well."

Hagan was heavily involved in recruiting Lang, a 6-foot-7, 265-pound, three-star prospect from Maranatha High School in Pomona, Calif. Lang will be one of the tallest players on the team this next season, joining four offensive linemen that are also listed at 6-7.

Lang joins a class that has been ranked in the top 30 nationally by Scout.com and ESPN.com. The other 27 players in the class were announced on Wednesday. Lang is one of six defensive linemen signed by the Buffs in this class.

Rivals.com rated Lang as one of the top 35 defensive ends in the 2017 recruiting class. He had 40 tackles, 8 for loss, and two sacks for Maranatha this past season, playing in only eight games because of an injury.

Lang also plays basketball, averaging six points and four rebounds per game.
