Two more players gave their verbal commitment to the Colorado football team on Sunday.
Defensive back Morrell Osling III of Antelope Valley (Calif.) High School and defensive end Shamar Hamilton of ASA College in North Miami Beach, Fla., both pledged to be a part of the Buffaloes’ 2017 recruiting class.
CU now has 16 players committed for the class, 14 of them in high school and two in junior college.
Osling and Hamilton both visited CU over the weekend.
“I can without a doubt say that this is the place I could call home for the next 4 years!,” Osling tweeted. “I’m truly blessed to have this opportunity and would like to thank God for the path he has set for me.”
Scout.com rates Osling as a two-star pro-style quarterback, but the Buffs project the 6-foot-3, 170-pounder as a cornerback.
The 6-foot-3, 236-pound Hamilton told Scout.com that this weekend was his first-ever recruiting trip, as he didn’t have any offers out of high school. CU has been the only school to offer him at this point.
Hamilton played just one season at Santaluces High School in Lantana, Fla., before playing at ASA last season. He had 32 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss at ASA last season.
Hamilton plans to transfer to CU in January. He will have three years to play two.
