California athlete Donovan Lee commits to the Buffaloes

Mike MacIntyre has landed a big verbal for the defense.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Colorado Buffaloes head coach Mike MacIntyre has landed his second cornerback (likely where he'll end up) commitment of the week with today's verbal from California running back/defensive back Donovan Lee. Lee is a teammate of current commit Rock Gamboa and could also see time on offense and as a returner in the future. Lee has a younger brother at wide receiver that will hopefully figure in for Colorado in 2016.

Lee becomes the seventeeth commitment in the Buffaloes 2014 class.

Welcome aboard, Donovan!

Notes: From Rivals ($):
"I loved it the last time I went out there [to CU]," Lee recently told recruiting analyst Adam Gorney. "They (new coaches at CU) have a winning mentality. They know how to win and with the right guys coming in with our class, they could turn that whole program around the next few years."
