With the 2014 recruiting cycle winding down to an end the Colorado Buffaloes picked up the first commitment for 2015 Thursday night with the verbal of California linebacker N.J. Falo. Not even yet 17 years old, Filo is already 6'2, 225 lbs and was a stand out at both tight end and and linebacker during his junior season.
Mike MacIntyre's staff recruited N.J.'s brother Nate to San Jose State and he was drawn to play for this staff. Inderkum's Head Coach Terry Stark thinks that N.J. is only going to get bigger.
"He's 6-3, about 225 right now with good speed. It depends on how big he's going to get," Stark said. "I could see him playing linebacker, inside, outside backer. If he continues to put some weight on he could be a defensive end.
"What you have is an athlete who is going to get bigger. It's probably what he's going to grow into."
Welcome aboard, N.J.! Check out his video highlights here.
