Colorado Football Recruiting: Buffaloes Come Away With Solid Class After National Signing Day 2012

Colorado Buffaloes head football coach Jon Embree had his first true recruiting class for the school during the 2011-12 season since he was hired only late into the 2010 season. And so far the early results are looking good for the team's future.

Over at ESPN's RecruitingNation (Insider), the Buffs receive a B-minus for this class. Yuri Wright is rightly pegged as the top prospect of this class since he is a top-five cornerback among high school recruits. But, as the write up indicates, Wright needs to show maturity after his indiscretions on Twitter. Indiscretions that reportedly had him kicked out of school and lose a scholarship offer to Michigan.

ESPN also highlights the addition of Kenneth Crawley, a cornerback who is part of a trio of players coming from Washington, D.C. Defensive line and running back were also positions that received a boost from this class.

Scout.com gave the Buffaloes the No. 29 class this year. Not bad for a team that won just three games this past fall.
