Colorado football coaches received an oral commitment Saturday morning from cornerback Sherrard Harrington of Washington D.C.

Harrington, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound prospect was one of approximately nine recruits making official campus visits to CU this weekend. He plays a position coach Jon Embree identified as a priority in the 2011 recruiting cycle.

Harrington is the seventh known commitment in a class that is expected to number between 12 and 15 players.
