Colorado hasn’t been in the mix for many top-level high school football recruits the last few years. Its top prep signee in the 2018 class, athlete Dimitri Stanley, was No. 439 in the 247Sports composite rankings, and of their four pledges for 2019 the highest-rated is quarterback Ty Evans at No. 420.
But after hosting 4-star wide receiver Braedin Huffman-Dixon on an official visit over the weekend that could be changing.
“As of now, they’re my No. 1,” Huffman-Dixon told Rivals.com’s Mike Singer. “The energy, the vibe. I felt welcomed and everyone treated me like family. Everyone was welcoming and I loved it.”
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Huffman-Dixon is ranked No. 254 in the 2019 class, per 247Sports. He currently plays for Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California and is ranked as the 28th-best prospect from the Golden State as well as the nation’s No. 40 wide receiver.
Colorado is the only school to officially host Huffman-Dixon at this point. He has offers from seven other schools including Arizona State, Georgia, Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA and USC.
