When you're on, you're on. No one should be questioning the Colorado Buffaloes recruiting efforts now. Adam Munsterteiger of BuffStampede has reported that the Buffs have landed a verbal commitment from Georgia cornerback Ronnie Blackmon.

He has a very impressive offer list and could be indicative, along with Akil Jones, of the types of players that Jim Leavitt and his defensive staff are able to bring on board.

Blackmon is the fifth verbal in the 2016 class and the second on defense.

Welcome aboard , Ronnie!
