Rams gain senior 'backer Deonte Clyburn
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."
This spring, he posted an electronically-timed 5.24 40-yard dash, 4.66 20-yard shuttle, 27.8-inch vertical and 63.36 SPARQ at a Nike Combine and then tallied 105 tackles during his senior season.
