On Sunday, Dylan Thomas, a four-star recruit from Santa Fe Springs, Calif., announced on Twitter that he plans to sign with CU for the 2018 class.
" I would like to say thank you to the whole staff at Colorado for making me feel at home," he wrote on Twitter. "I would now like to announce that I am now committed to .THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO."
Thomas is the 15th player committed to CU in the 2018 class, and the fourth to commit in the past nine days. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Thomas is also the first player in the 2018 class with a four-star rating, from Scout.com. He has a three-star rating from Rivals.com.
Thomas has about 20 other scholarship offers, including from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Oregon State, Utah and Washington State.
Thomas is the third receiver in this class, along with 6-foot-4, 190-pound Daniel Arias of Henry M. Jackson (Wash.) High School and 6-foot, 178-pound Dimitri Stanley of Cherry Creek High School. The Buffs will also welcome Texas Tech transfer Tony Brown to the receiving corps this winter.
That foursome will join a talented foursome of receivers that CU signed in its 2017 class, including four-star recruits, K.D. Nixon and Laviska Shenault.
The young receivers should keep CU stacked at that position for years to come.
This year, CU's receiving corps is viewed as one of the best in the country, led by seniors Bryce Bobo, Shay Fields and Devin Ross.
In 2018, in addition to the eight newcomers, CU is expected to have Jay MacIntyre, Lee Walker and Juwann Winfree as seniors and Johnny Huntley as a junior.
