Colorado received a commitment from wide receiver Johnny Huntley on Tuesday afternoon, bringing the total number of pledges for the 2016 class to eight on the eve of camp. Huntley, a product of Plantation, Fla., is the first commit from the Sunshine State at CU since the 2010 class. That 2010 player never played at CU, but others in the recent past such as running back Kevin Moyd and punter Matt Dilallo made significant contributions in their careers. Huntley would be the 24th player from Florida recruited to CU since 1973 if he ultimately signs with the program in February.
Huntley (6-foot-3, 190 pounds) is rated with three stars by Rivals.com and had offers from more than 25 schools, including the likes of TCU, Louisville and Tennessee. He is ranked No. 61 among all recruits in Florida in the 2016 cycle and No. 69 nationally among all receivers.
"I thought committing and getting it out of the way was a good idea and Colorado was the No. 1 school on my list," Huntley told Rivals.
Adam Munsterteiger of BuffStampede.com said senior cornerback Ken Crawley is the last CU recruit to have more than 25 offers. Crawley signed with the Buffs in 2012 and is one of the most experienced players on the roster heading into his senior season.
