Colorado lands commitment from Oregon linebacker

Karl Dorrell and the Colorado Buffaloes are continuing their June momentum. After hosting group after group of high school studs (all after the dead period, I should point out, thanks to ASU), the commitments are starting to stampede in for the Buffaloes. The latest player to join the herd is the stud linebacker from Oregon, Kaden Ludwick.

Ludwick is from a town called Clackamas, Oregon, which Google tells me is just outside of Portland. Kaden stars at Clackamas High School, where he plays on both sides of the ball at OLB/TE. At cU, he will focus on the defensive side of the ball. Ludwick chose the Buffs over Washington State and interest from Oregon and Washington.

What more do I have to say? Luckwick is just a huge athlete. At 6’5, 240 pounds, he can EASILY grow into a defensive end, especially in a hybrid front. He is, as it stands, just as big or maybe even bigger than Carson Wells right now. When you pop in his tape, that is a great best comparison. Kaden is just a jumbo athlete. He moves fluidly, always streams toward the ball, and has good natural strength. Ludwick appears to be a sort of new paradigm for Karl Dorrell teams, a gigantic football player who has to develop. I’ll take more of those.

Welcome, Kaden!
