The Colorado Buffaloes landed four-star recruit cornerback Kenneth Crawley, as he announced a verbal commitment to the school over the weekend. The Buffaloes had been lacking a four-start recruit for its haul this year ever since quarterback Shane Dillon had been downgraded to a three-star prospect by the various recruiting services.

He then tweeted a couple of times about joining the Buffs after that (via the Denver Post). The 6-foot-1, 170-pound cornerback should be able to come in right away as a freshman and try to follow in the career path of Jimmy Smith, a first-round draft pick last April. The Ralphie Report is already excited about Crawley's commitment and can't wait for him to compete:
Crawley is an elite cornerback prospect that should come in and compete for a spot in his first season. His offer list is leaps and bounds ahead of any other prospect that the Buffaloes have on board so far this season. Crawley joins teammates De'Jon Wilson, John Walker and current Buff Sherrard Harrington in Boulder. It's safe to say Colorado has a bit of a pipeline going at the Washington D.C. school [H.D. Woodson].
National Signing Day is on Feb. 1, which means Crawley isn't quite a Buff yet. But we shouldn't expect anything to change his verbal over the next week.
