Heritage: Football DT Frank Umu signs his University of Colorado National Letter of Intent LIVE on 9NEWS.

Grandview: A lot of Wolves signed NLIs at some big D1 schools.

Mountain Vista:  This year, Vista has the most college commitments in the state, with twenty-seven student-athletes signing NLIs.

Ralston Valley:  Football RB Andrew ‘Dewey’ Wingard, Colorado’s Gatorade Football Player of the Year, is without a doubt one of the biggest highlights of this year’s batch of recruits.  Dewey is signing with the University of Wyoming.  Another Mustangs’ football teammate, Collin Root, will also join Dewey at Wyoming as a walk-on.


Pine Creek:  Pine Creek honored twelve student-athletes signing NLIs, including Parker Hammond who will continue his football career at the Air Force Academy.

Regis Jesuit:  9Preps reporter Julia Lopez covered the ceremony and will have a feature story later on All-USA Colorado OL Tim Lynott.

Denver East:  These Angels are off to some pretty prestigious schools, for some very cool things.

Legacy:  A solid recruiting class for the Lightning, with one of the top catchers in the state signing to play baseball with North Carolina.

Pomona:  With ALL-USA Colorado OL Dillon Middlemiss leading the pack, a lot of these Panthers are staying in-state to play college athletics.

Rocky Mountain:  The Lobos have a ton of headlining athletes, with a lot of focus on the three ALL-USA Colorado football players who are signing in-state – OL Salofi Gaoa and LB Max McDonald to CSU, and K Alex Kinney to CU.  Per CSU Football’s Twitter account, Gaoa and McDonald are the eleventh pair of teammates to commit to CSU since 2004.

Overland:  Even though he signed with Wyoming for early signing period, hoops star Austin Conway shocked many when he decided to choose basketball over football.  Hoops teammate Ryan Swam is off to Air Force, and DE Kevin Prosser is joining Conway at Wyoming, but for football.

Mountain Range:  For the first time in school history, the Mustangs have four D1 signees: athletes signing with Indiana, Penn State, CSU, and UNLV.
