Another One! Chase Newman Commits to the Buffs!

The La Mirada product joins the herd for 2017.

Another One

Here we go! After about a month long hiatus, the Buffs have been active in the past week or so. Chase Newman is CU's third commit in the past seven days, and eighth commitment overall. Newman also comes at an important position of need, linebacker, and has a game perfectly fit to the Pac-12 game. He hits hard, covers very well, and seems to have short-range athleticism in spades. Chase is a five tool player, and a guy that you should move around your defense to get closer to the ball.

Newman also represents the opening of the La Mirada pipeline, one that should serve the Buffs very well in years to come. La Mirada is coached by Mike Moschetti of CU fame, and him and Darrin Chiaverini are close friends. This cycle, Chase Newman , Elijah Hicks and Sire Woods all have offers from Colorado, and all seem to be interested in coming to Boulder. For now, let's not get greedy, and welcome Newman to the Buff family!
