Colorado got a big addition to its commitment list for the 2019 football recruiting class on Wednesday.
Na’im Rodman, a 6-foot-3, 290-pound defensive tackle from St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif., gave his verbal commitment to the Buffaloes, head coach Mike MacIntyre and defensive line coach Kwahn Drake.
“I have found a new home for the next chapter of my life,” Rodman wrote on Twitter. “I am 100% committed to the University of Colorado! Thank you Coach MacIntyre and Coach Drake for the opportunity.”
Rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com and 247Sports.com, Rodman has a dozen other offers, including from Air Force, Colorado State, Boston College, Minnesota, Navy and Oregon State.
Rodman received a scholarship offer from CU a couple weeks ago and took an official visit to the campus last weekend.
CU has a history with St. John Bosco players, as Rodman is the second Brave to commit for 2019, joining safety Titus Toler. Current CU outside linebacker Jacob Callier graduated from Bosco, as did former Buffs’ receiver Shay Fields.
Rodman is the 16th player to commit to CU for 2019, and the first defensive lineman.
