Cloy is a 6-foot-3, 226-pound tight end-H, rated as a three-star prospect and the 14th-best player at his position in this class. Colorado and Colorado State were his other scholarship offers. Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA and Washington expressed some interest.

Hunt, a 6-3, 199-pound safety, selected Arizona over offers from rival Arizona State and Montana. ESPN RecruitingNation rates Hunt as a three-star.

Mashack also carries a three-star grade. Hawaii was his other offer, while California, San Diego State and UCLA showed interest in the 5-9, 182-pound athlete.

Following his evaluation, Wood might end up as the highest-rated prospect of the group. The 6-6, 240-pound rising senior tight end was also offered by Alabama, Arizona State, Boise State, Kansas State, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah and Washington.

Arizona's class has grown to 18 following the flurry over commitments this weekend.

Buffaloes land in-state safety White

July, 8, 2013
7/08/13
9:56
AM ET
Rising senior Evan White (Aurora, Colo./Cherokee) committed Sunday to play for Colorado, the Denver Post reports.

Colorado State and New Mexico State also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-2, 192-pound safety, who intercepted seven passes as a junior. Arizona State showed interest.

This spring, White posted an electronically-timed 4.93 40-yard dash, 4.38 20-yard shuttle, 29.2-inch vertical, 31.5-foot power throw and 70.26 SPARQ at a Nike combine.

Colorado has eight pledges for 2014, all coming since late May.
Don’t expect a commitment announcement until after the 2013 football season for running back Deron Thompson (Wichita, Kan./Northwest). Do, however, expect Thompson to fully benefit from his summer training.

While many football players are either going through traditional gridiron workouts or playing 7-on-7, Thompson is honing the one skill that could separate him: speed. Listed at 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Thompson’s lack of size quickly becomes a nonfactor when the conversation of his 4.28 40-yard dash time is mentioned.

PM ET
Six-foot-3, 233-pound linebacker Zach Brown (San Diego, Calif./Henry) committed Monday to sign with the Buffaloes, according to multiple reports.

Army, Colorado State and San Diego State also extended scholarship offers to the rising senior. Boise State, Missouri, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, San Jose State, UCLA and Washington expressed interest.

Brown displayed impressive athleticism for a big linebacker this spring at a Nike Combine. He registered an electronically-timed 4.86 40-yard dash, 4.38 20-yard shuttle, 26.8-inch vertical, 38.5-foot power thrown and 89.79 SPARQ.

Colorado now has six pledges for 2014.

Hawkeyes pull another Jones from Rams

June, 15, 2013

9:16
AM ET
Class of 2014 safety Jyaz Jones (Dallas/South Oak Cliff) has decommitted from Colorado State in favor of Iowa, according to multiple reports.

His older brother, wide receiver Anjeus Jones, followed the same path to Iowa City, originally choosing the Rams before signing with the Hawkeyes this past February.

Jyaz, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect, also holds scholarship offers from Baylor, Nebraska, New Mexico State and Texas Tech. LSU, SMU and Texas expressed interest. Jones sustained a torn ACL during spring practice. Prior to the injury, he posted an electronically timed 4.67 40-yard dash, 4.01 20-yard shuttle and 32.5-foot power throw on the Nike camp circuit.

The Hawkeyes now have six commitments for 2014.

2015 defensive back Jamile Johnson Jr. (Dallas/South Oak Cliff) wouldn’t mind if every day was like Tuesday.

Early that afternoon, Johnson got word that Louisiana Tech was his first offer. Following a Texas Tech camp, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback -- who can effectively play safety -- landed an offer from the Red Raiders. Hours later, Colorado State extended a scholarship.

Some might call it a recruiting trifecta. Johnson had other words for it.

Rams add combine standout Josh Watson

June, 5, 2013
6/05/13
10:44
AM ET
Inside linebacker Josh Watson (Blue Springs, Mo./South) received his first FBS scholarship offer from Colorado State and has committed to the Rams, multiple sources report.

"I was tired of going to different colleges and being one of the top prospects after camp and not receiving an offer," Watson told the Reporter Herald. "I wanted to go into the season with having an offer and a commitment to a school and not worry about what school I'm going to play at and who was going to offer me. I felt like Colorado State was the place for me to play football."

The 6-foot-1, 233-pound Watson holds an FCS offer from South Dakota State and received interest from Iowa. Colorado State linebackers coach Tim Skipper spearheaded the Rams' pursuit.

Watson was a top performer this spring on the Nike circuit, posting an electronically timed 4.83 40-yard dash, 4.22 20-yard shuttle, 31.7-inch vertical, 37.5-foot power throw and 102 SPARQ.

The Rams have three verbals.

SMU lands playmaker Nate Gaines

June, 4, 2013

8:47
AM ET
On Monday, defensive back/wide receiver Nate Gaines (Mesquite, Texas/Poteet) committed to play for the SMU Mustangs, the Dallas Morning News reports. He was recruited by SMU associate head coach/defensive coordinator Tom Mason.

Arkansas State, Colorado State, Louisiana-Monroe, Navy, Nevada, Northern Illinois, Utah State, UTEP and Texas-San Antonio also extended scholarship offers to Gaines.

Despite his pledge, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect still hopes to visit Baylor and Oklahoma State this summer.

Gaines, a two-way contributor, caught 29 passes for 296 yards and six touchdowns and registered 48 tackles and nine interceptions as a junior.

SMU has seven commitments for 2014.

Rams top BCS offers for Jyaz Jones

May, 17, 2013
5/17/13
8:48
AM ET
Coveted safety Jyaz Jones (Dallas/South Oak Cliff) committed to play in the Mountain West Conference for Colorado State, multiple sources report.

Baylor, Iowa, Nebraska, New Mexico State and Texas Tech also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect. Programs such as LSU, Southern Methodist and Texas showed interest.

Jones posted impressive combine figures on the Nike circuit, including a 4.67-second 40-yard dash, 4.01-second 20-yard shuttle and 32.5-foot power throw.

His older brother, Class of 2013 wide receiver Anjeus Jones, originally committed to Colorado State before signing with Iowa.

The Rams have two verbals for 2014. Athlete Bryson Gates (Fairfield, Texas/Fairfield) also committed this week.

Rams start class with versatile Texan

AM ET
Athlete Bryson Gates (Fairfield, Texas/Fairfield) has become Colorado State's first Class of 2014 verbal, the Coloradoan reports.

Gates plays safety, inside and outside linebacker, wide receiver and running back for Fairfield. Even his coach, John Bachtel, is unsure of Gates' future landing spot: "To be honest, I don't know what position he'll be best at."

The Rams are his only scholarship offer at this time, but TCU was showing interest in the 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect.

WR Raelon Singleton picks the Utes

May, 15, 2013
5/15/13
9:29
AM ET
Utah added a pledge Tuesday night from 2014 wide receiver Raelon Singleton (Crosby, Texas/Crosby). He was recruited by Utes safeties coach Morgan Scalley.



Colorado State, Houston, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, San Diego State and Tulsa were the 6-foot-4, 185-pound prospect's other scholarship offers. TCU and Texas Tech showed interest.

Singleton, who also plays basketball, caught 39 passes for 622 yards (16 average) and 6 touchdowns as a junior.

The Utes have secured five verbals during this recruiting cycle. Singleton is their first pledge from outside state lines.
