Three-star defensive tackle Lloyd Murray has become the latest player to give his verbal commitment to the Colorado football team.

On Sunday morning, the 6-foot-2, 310-pound prospect from Hirschi High School in Wichita Falls, Tex., announced his commitment on Twitter.

“This process was a very long, tough, and stressful process but it was still a dream come true at the end,” he wrote on Twitter. “Learning how the process works overtime I grew myself, as a person, as a football player. At the end of it all I can’t do nothing but be happy and thank God. So without further ado, I will be committing to the University of Colorado and sign next Wednesday.”

Murray, who took his official visit to CU this weekend, has 26 scholarship offers, according to, including from Notre Dame and 22 other Power 5 conference teams. He was briefly committed to Mississippi last year.

Murray is one of eight players in the class of 2019 currently committed to sign letters of intent on Wednesday. The Buffs signed 16 players during the December signing period.

The eight expected to sign Wednesday:

LB Jamar Montgomery, Independence (Kan.) Community College
LB Quinn Perry, El Camino (Calif.) College
WR Tarik Luckett, J Serra High School (Calif.)
DT Lloyd Murray Jr., Hirschi High School (Tex.)
