Multiple sites are reporting that Upland, California athlete Christian Powell will give his signature to the Colorado Buffaloes during tomorrow's signing day festivities. Powell is teammates with current Buffs commits Donta Abron and Marques Mosley, but he had been a member of UCLA's class until today.
