2018 in-state star commits to the Buffaloes

Another big get from the Centennial State

NCAA Football: Utah at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

You wanna hear something really fun? Colorado has four 2018 commits, and it’s NOT EVEN MARCH. Here’s an even more fun fact- three of four commits hail from inside Colorado, with the fourth theoretically joining the Buffs from the classic CU pipeline state Tennessee. This is big news, folks. Last year’s huge class started with a strong backbone of Colorado stars that helped recruit the rest of the talented class. Dante Sparaco and Jon Van Diest jumped on board first, then everyone else followed. It looks like the Buffs are using the same model. First, Ray Robinson committed to CU from Highlands Ranch. Then, Blake Stenstrom made sure that CU is getting at least one Valor Christian kid. Now, Max Borghi is joining the Buffs from Pomona, a traditional powerhouse. And boy are the Buffs getting a good one.

Borghi has dominated 5A football in Colorado since he was a freshman. He has played on varsity since his freshman year, and he just keeps getting better. This past year, despite only playing in 11 games, Borghi racked up 1654 all purpose yards as a junior and averaged around 150 a game. Deadly as a return man, tough and fast as a runner, with sure hands as a receiver, Max will find a way to hurt you no matter how he gets the ball. In a spread offense like CU uses, he can line up in the backfield, split out wide, or start in the slot and do just fine. He absolutely flashes on tape.

Vision, balance, explosiveness, and pure speed, Max shows it all on the field. Colorado is his only Power 5 offer so far, but more will surely come. He is choosing the Buffs over Nevada, CSU, and Air Force.

Congrats, Max!
