Colorado State Recruiting: Joe Hansley Commits To Rams

New Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain picked up an in-state commitment on Wednesday when Highlands Ranch's Joe Hansley chose to play football for the Rams. McElwain had made an in-home visit that impressed Hansley:

"(McElwain) was really confident in his plan to change what goes on at CSU — making it more of a winning tradition and start bringing some better players in there and winning some games," Hansley said.

Hansley primarily played running back and defensive back for Highlands Ranch and was told by McElwain that he would be used as a slot back in the CSU offense. McElwain, who is still in the early stages of getting his Rams program off the ground, also encouraged Hansley to help in recruiting other high school players.
