Buffaloes Land A Huge Commitment From Houston DE Marcus Loud

Jon Embree has landed his 14th verbal commitment in the 2013 class in defensive end Marcus Loud.

The Colorado Buffaloes have added their 14th verbal commitment of the 2013 class according to a tweet from Adam Musterteiger last night. Loud, a strongside defensive end from Houston, Texas had been verballed to the Missouri Tigers since May, but has been wavering on that decision for a while. He visited Boulder this weekend for the UCLA game and made the switch shortly thereafter. Loud was a first-team all-district and second-team all-Houston selection after his junior season. For those of you who love to check out a prospect's offer list, you're going to love this one.

For those of you getting used to the new layout, you can find the full list of 2013 verbals here.

Welcome aboard, Marcus!

"It was lovely, couldn't be any better," Loud said of his official visit to Colorado. "It was everything I heard about and saw in the pictures.
