Buffaloes land a verbal from Texas offensive lineman

Colorado's strong 2017 class continues to grow.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Longtime Ralphie Report readers know that Nate Bonsu was my favorite Buffalo to cover not only because he was a great guy, but also because he graduated from my alma mater in Allen, Texas. Now I have a second favorite commit to cover as the Buffs have landed a verbal from Will Sherman, a three-star offensive guard.

Sherman is a highly regarded lineman that holds offers from Kansas State, California (a little payback), Houston, Illinois and Mississippi State, among others. He will be moving from guard to tackle at Allen for his senior season and will be joining fellow 3-star Grant Polley and Heston Paige on the line in the 2017 class.

He becomes the sixth commit from Texas and the seventeenth overall. All of the Buffaloes verbals are still from Colorado, California and Texas (although Sparaco is now in Florida).

Welcome aboard, Will!
