Utah Defensive Lineman Verbals to Colorado

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Sam Bennion is the third defensive line commit in just over a week for the Buffs.

The Colorado Buffaloes have landed their another commitment on the defensive line. Logan, Utah's Sam Bennion has made his decision to come to Boulder. Bennion was a honorable mention all-state player who is a three-year starter and recorded 50 tackles and six sacks in his junior season. It's clear that Mike MacIntyre wants to give Jim Jeffcoat plenty of bodies to work with and this bodes well for the future. Good to see this class coming together.

Bennion becomes the eleventh commitment in the Buffaloes 2014 class.

Watch his highlights on HUDL here.

Welcome aboard, Sam!

Notes: From Rivals ($):
"I liked Colorado's camp a lot. They liked how I played with good technique," Bennion said during a previous interview with BuffStampede.com. "I think it is a great program. I met with their defensive line coach, Jim Jeffcoat, and really like him as a coach. He is great.

"And their head coach, Mike MacIntyre, knows his stuff and I believe he is going to do great things there."
