I haven't even had an opportunity to get up a story on the Buffaloes sixth verbal commitment that came Saturday before the seventh has made his decision to attend Colorado. Patrick Taylor Jr, a running back and athlete out of Humble, Texas, has made the call to head to Boulder.

Taylor accounted 849 yards and nine touchdowns in his junior season at running back while also playing linebacker on the defensive side of the ball.

Taylor is the seventh verbal in the 2016 class and the fifth on offense.

Welcome aboard , Patrick!
