Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre answers questions during his national signing day press conference on Wednesday.

Colorado added two more players to its 2018 football recruiting class on Wednesday morning, the first day of the regular signing period.

Alex Tchangam, an outside linebacker from De Anza (Calif.) College, signed his letter of intent, while former Virginia Tech running back Travon McMillian signed a financial aid agreement.

Their additions bring CU’s class to 23 players, including 20 signed during the early period in December and offensive lineman Kanan Ray, who signed a financial aid agreement and arrived in January.

Tchangam is a 6-foot-3, 250-pound pass rush specialist. He earned all-conference honors last season after racking up 69 tackles, 23 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks. He plans to arrive at CU in July and has three years to play two seasons.

McMillian is a graduate transfer with one season of eligibility. By signing a financial aid agreement, he is not bound to coming to CU until he arrives on campus this summer.

The 6-foot, 210-pound McMillian was the leading rusher at Virginia Tech in 2015, and he led Hokies tailbacks in rushing yards in 2016. He was their top tailback during the regular season this past year, as well, but skipped the Hokies’ trip to the Camping World Bowl and got passed up in that game.

During his career with the Hokies, McMillian rushed for 2,153 yards and 16 touchdowns. As a redshirt freshman in 2015, he rushed for 1,043 yards and seven touchdowns. He split carries with other backs the past two seasons.
