The Colorado Buffaloes landed a huge commitment to their 2019 football recruiting class with the addition of wide receiver Braedin Huffman-Dixon from the defending national champion Mater Dei HS (Santa Ana, Calif).
Huffman-Dixon is ranked on both the ESPN 300 & Rivals 250 lists as a four-star talent, giving another explosive weapon for Darrin Chiaverini’s offense. The 6’2”, 180-pound wideout gathered attention from many schools at last month’s Under Armor All-American Camp by showing off his pure athleticism. Add that to making the roster for Nike Football’s “The Opening,” a showcase of the nation’s top high school prospects.
A total of nine schools were pursuing Huffman-Dixon including Georgia, Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA, USC and Utah. Outside of his work on the field, the physical deep-threat playmaker is a dual-sport competitor in track, running a top time of 11.46 in the 100-meter dash. Huffman-Dixon is the fifth player to commit to Colorado’s future class and the first player commit from the state of California. He’s arguably the highest-rated player recruited by the Buffaloes staff during coach Mike MacIntyre’s tenure.
Mater Dei will host IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla) on Sept. 21, a game that features seven ESPN Top 100 players including Huffman-Dixon. The rest of the season could be an exhibit of what Colorado will be adding to their already dangerous receiving corps.
Welcome to the fight, Braedin.
