The Colorado Buffaloes haven't even played a football game this season and they all ready have 13 commitments for 2014 after a verbal from Sandy, Utah, defensive end Christian Shaver. The recruiting networks Rivals and Scout confirmed the commitment on Wednesday afternoon.
Shaver is listed as two-star recruit by both services. Rivals has the Jordan High School product at 6-foot-3, 232 pounds while Scout lists him at 6-3, 215 pounds. Shaver had reported offers from Hawaii and Utah. He was gaining attention from Arizona State and Utah State as well.
Coming off a prep season-opening 40-12 win where he recorded five total tackles, two sacks and a tackle for a loss, Shaver decided to give his verbal to CU. Maxpreps.com lists Shaver's junior stats with the Beetdiggers at 77 total tackles with two and a half sacks.
Shaver worked out with the Buffs in June at one of CU's camps and has pledged to join coach Jim Jeffcoat's defensive line. He is the fifth defensive lineman the Buffs have received a verbal from for 2014, joining fellow Utah end Sam Bennion, ends Zach Brown and Jase Franke and tackle Eddy Lopez.
Shaver, who is also a standout on the Jordan track team (throwing events), took to Twitter to announce his commitment. His video highlights are available on Hudl.
