Colorado added another football commitment for the 2018 class on Tuesday night, while also getting a jump on its 2019 class.

Offensive tackle Josh McMullen announced his commitment to the Buffaloes on Twitter, adding some much-needed muscle to the 2018 class.

Earlier in the evening, Valor Christian High School running back Joshia Davis became the first player in the 2019 class to pledge to the Buffs.

A 6-foot-5, 270-pound tackle at East Central (Miss.) Community College, McMullen gives the Buffs some added experience on their offensive line. He has three years to play two, and will be one of seven upperclassmen projected on the Buffs' 2018 offensive line.

McMullen, who walked on at East Central, was committed to Austin Peay before switching to CU. He has more than a dozen scholarship offers, including a recent offer from Central Florida.

As a sophomore this season, McMullen earned second-team All-MACJC (Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges) honors. He visited CU's campus the weekend of Dec. 1.

Davis announced his commitment on Twitter, as well, writing, "I fell in love with one school since day 1."

As a junior this past season, Davis was the leading rusher for Valor Christian (11-1). MaxPreps.com has statistics for only nine games, but in those games, Davis ran for 771 yards and 11 touchdowns on 129 carries (6.0 per carry). He also caught 15 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns.
