CU certainly has momentum on the field and the 2017 recruiting class is shaping up nicely. The 2016 season isn't even done yet and the 2017 class has a bunch more spots to fill, but that didn't stop the Buffs from forging ahead and getting their commitment to the 2018 class, Ray Robinson. The safety/rover from Highlands Ranch, Colorado has been all Buffs for a while and he looks to be another great asset for CU going forward on the recruiting trail. He's a great player with a college ready body, and his passion for the Buffs as an in-stater will help draw more talent. Also,yes, the players in this class were most likely born in 2000. Time is weird.
Robinson plays with a physicality and explosiveness that makes him easy to spot in Colorado high school football. Even as a sophomore on his tape, he looks like a man amongst boys. Not many players in the Denver Metro-area have his size and speed combination, and even fewer have his game recognition and instincts. What's nice is he seems tailor made for the newly-created position that Colorado native Ryan Moeller occupies, a safety that can come in to the box consistently, set the edge, cover the slot or the tight end. What do we call this position? Who knows, all we know is that Robinson is a player.
