Colorado Picks Up #18, North Carolina Prep RB Trea Jones
With the departure of running backs Demetrius Sumler and Darrell Scott from last year's squad, the Buffs have only three scholarship backs from a year ago. Because of that, running back turned into a big priority this offseason to try and add depth. Colorado has already received a verbal from New Jersey RB Tony Jones for the 2010 class and have followed that up with the most recent pledge to the group in North Carolina prep RB Trea Jones. Jones, listed at 5'11" 187 pounds, visited Colorado this past weekend and received his first offer. Upon being offered, Jones accepted and is now Colorado's 18th known verbal commitment. Jones is not ranked by any of the recruiting services. More to come on Trea Jones later tonight.
