Colorado Buffaloes Recruiting: Buffs Move Up In The Rankings, Still Waiting On Final Two Recruits

As expected, Colorado has picked up a few more Letter of Intents today. They now have 18 signed players, two more then the Buffs had listed this morning. The late additions to the class were running back Malcolm Creer from Pacific Palisades, Caif., as well as Paulay Asiata who made a last minute switch to attend Colorado with his teammate Juda Parker.

Adding Parker and Creer gave the Buffs a big boost in their overall class ranking. No longer are they last in the Pac-12 as they were this morning, but now they moved up to eighth ahead of UCLA and both Arizona schools. They are at the heels of Washington State and that could change as Colorado is in the running for two more recruits.

The first player that Colorado is waiting to hear from is linebacker Leilon Willingham who is the second best player in the state of Colorado and the 13th rated best linebacker in the country. Willingham is expected to make his announcement on Thursday at his high school which was closed due to the severe weather in the Colorado are, and unless some team swoops in last minute, the four-star linebacker will be a Colorado Buffalo.

The other player that Colorado is waiting to hear an answer from is Stephan Nembot, a three-star defensive end from Van Nuys, Calif., who is expected to make his announcement tonight at 6:30 p.m. MT. Nembot has already switched his commitment from Washington State to Washington, and now he may switch again to Colorado since he enjoyed his official visit to Colorado over the past weekend. If Willingham and Nembot sign that would give Colorado a 2011 class size of 20.
