New, 7 comments

On top of offers from Arizona, Air Force and San Diego State, Adkins also holds offers from Harvard and Yale.

The Colorado Buffaloes have landed a verbal commitment from La Mesa, California running back Michael Adkins. Adkins has no rating's from any of the major recruiting services, but his offer list says he could end up being a late steal. On top of offers from Arizona, Air Force and San Diego State, Adkins also holds offers from Harvard and Yale, which shows he is significantly smarter than us all. This is a great pick-up from a talent rich area in California.

You can find the full list of 2013 verbals here.

Welcome aboard, Mike!

Notes: From Buff Stampede ($):
"Adkins rushed for 1,770 yards and 24 touchdowns as Helix went 10-1 in 2012. He earned first-team all-county and second-team all-CIF honors.

"I am a running back that works hard and plays tough," Adkins said. "Colorado is going to get a running back that can play with speed out there. I am a playmaker type of guy that can make people miss in the open field and take it the distance."
