With an extremely small class because of a low number of seniors the Colorado Buffaloes have had a slow start to the 2016 recruiting cycle, joining Iowa State as the only P5 school without a commit. That all changed on Tuesday night when Beaverton, Oregon quarterback Sam Noyer decided to make his verbal to CU official.

Noyer visited Boulder this past weekend and made the decision after returning home to Oregon. His junior season he finished with 2,697 yards and 19 touchdowns with a 61 percent completion rate.

Noyer is the first member of the 2016 class. Time to get rolling.

Welcome aboard, Sam!

High. "I am very fortunate to have this opportunity. I kept thinking about it today and just felt it was time to make a commitment."
