KJ Trujillo a three-star defensive back prospect from Orange Lutheran HS (Orange, Calif) verbally committed to the Buffs on Thursday, shortly after his official visit to CU this past weekend. Among the eleven schools to offer Trujillo a scholarship were Pac-12 rivals Oregon, Oregon State and Washington State, with more looking at him closely.
The 6’1”, 170-pound top-notch cornerback needed time to sleep on his options before making a decision. Trujillo is now the first 2019 player recruited to ShaDon Brown’s “Money Gang” secondary, and the second player recruited to the Buffs’ defense joining Dallas-Fort Worth outside linebacker Kamryn Farrar. Trujillo commits just after Braedin-Huffman Dixon, both from the state of California, with the rest of the six commits hailing from the State of Colorado (pro-style quarterback Ty Evans, offensive lineman Austin Johnson, and running back Joshia Davis).
The great addition to the next class of playmakers for the “DBU” at Colorado, Trujillo touts himself as a hard-hitting force in the secondary. He has a good range of motion to come back up the field on underneath routes along with decent speed to close in on a receiver. Trujillo racked up 66 tackles, three interceptions and two pass deflections in eleven games last season.
Welcome to the fight, KJ.
