January, 28, 2013
Louisville St. Xavier product Deonte Clyburn is on board with Jim McElwain's Rams, multiple sources report. He was recruited by CSU running backs / special teams coach Jeff Hammerschmidt.

The 6-foot, 214-pound linebacker selected Colorado State over Western Kentucky. Eastern Kentucky, Georgia State, Indiana State, Miami-OH, Southeast Missouri State, Tennessee-Martin, Western Kentucky and Wofford also offered.

Clyburn told the Louisville Courier-Journal that he selected Colorado State because of, "facilities, the area around it and really how beautiful it is."
