The Colorado Buffaloes have landed their third commitment of the day with the pledge of Cherry Creek athlete Dante Sparaco.

Sparaco, who lined up at tight end and defensive end at one of Colorado's last summer, joined his Cherry Creek teammate Jonathan Van Diest in verbaling to the Buffaloes today.

He is the second verbal in the 2017 class and the second on defense (although he could see time on either side of the ball).

Welcome aboard, Dante!
