Buffaloes land in-state safety White

Rising senior Evan White (Aurora, Colo./Cherokee) committed Sunday to play for Colorado, the Denver Post reports.

Colorado State and New Mexico State also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-2, 192-pound safety, who intercepted seven passes as a junior. Arizona State showed interest.

This spring, White posted an electronically-timed 4.93 40-yard dash, 4.38 20-yard shuttle, 29.2-inch vertical, 31.5-foot power throw and 70.26 SPARQ at a Nike combine.

Colorado has eight pledges for 2014, all coming since late May.
