New Colorado Buffaloes Head Coach Mike MacIntyre has landed his first commitment since taking over in Boulder with the verbal pledge of Napa, California defensive end Markeis Reed. Reed had offers from Iowa State, CSU and San Diego State and had drawn interest from Boise State and Oregon but was planning to accept a preferred walk-in role at USC. Reed is a stand-up defensive end and is currently still in Colorado visiting the campus. He will enroll and start classes in the spring semester.

Notes: From Rivals ($):
"Reed initially turned down offers from Iowa State, Colorado State and San Diego State and verbally accepted a preferred walk-on opportunity at Southern Cal. But the three-star prospect changed his mind when he had an opportunity to play in the Pac-12 on scholarship.

Boise State, Oregon and Washington also showed interest in Reed earlier in the process."
