Hasaan Hypolite, a three-star safety prospect from Texas, gave his verbal commitment to play football at Colorado on Friday night.

On Twitter, Hypolite wrote: "I just want to thank every school that has invested in my talents, my beautiful peers and family for everything you guys have done for me, with that being said I would like to Commit to Colorado University."

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Hypolite stars at Hightower High School in Missouri City, Tex. He has about a dozen scholarship offers, according to Scout.com, including from Houston, New Mexico and Texas Tech.

Rivals.com and Scout.com both give Hypolite a three-star rating. He took an official visit to CU the weekend of Sept. 22.
